Billy Butcher and Homelander sitting at the table for tea?
Not what we would expect from two sworn enemies like them, especially when we consider Butcher ‘s visceral hatred of the psychotic “superhero”. Yet, the new image of The Boys shows the two opponents in a seemingly peaceful situation.
The first three episodes of the third season will arrive on Friday, June 3 on Amazon Prime Video , and the Twitter profile promises that “there will be tea, and perhaps a friendly game of backgammon”. The other episodes will be released on a weekly basis, until July 8th .
In recent days we have seen the funny trailer for Dawn of the Seven , a fake blockbuster that parodies the various Avengers , Batman V Superman and Justice League .
You will find the image below.

The synopsis of the series
Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games) suffers a devastating loss at the hands of the reckless A-Train. His suffering from him turns to anger when he discovers that there is no legal recourse for those who suffer harm from superheroes. While trying to recover, Hughie meets a mysterious agent, Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), who recruits him to join him in the search for a justice that regulates the behavior of Superheroes, who are not what they seem.
THE BOYS is a series that shows what happens when superheroes – who are famous as celebrities, influential as politicians and revered as gods – abuse their powers. At the center of the episodes is the struggle between lack and excess of power: The Boys embark on a heroic quest to unmask the reality concerning the Seven and the Vought, the billionaire conglomerate that manages the Seven themselves and their dirty secrets.
The team consists of Billy Butcher ( Karl Urban ), the Frenchman ( Tomer Capon ), Breast Milk ( Laz Alonso ), the Female of the Species ( Karen Fukuhara ) and Little Hughie ( Jack Quaid ).
Supergroup Seven Justice League spoof includes Patriot ( Antony Starr ), Abyss ( Chace Crawford ), Queen Maeve ( Dominique McElligott ), A-Train ( Jessie T. Usher ), Black Noir ( Nathan Mitchell ), Translucent ( Alex Hassell ) and Starlight ( Erin Moriarty ).
Elisabeth Shue plays Madelyn Stillwell , while Simon Pegg is Little Hughie ‘s father: a sensible choice, given that Hughie ‘s face – in the comic – was modeled precisely on that of the English actor.
