Season 3 of The Boys made its Prime Video debut yesterday.
The first episode opens with an excerpt from Dawn of the Seven , a parody of the various Avengers , Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League .
We have already talked about this fake movie in the past . In the world of the series, after the discovery of Stormfront ‘s Nazi sympathies , the film had to go through a complicated phase of reshoot, necessary to change the story.
Stormfront has become the villain for obvious reasons and to interpret it we find the great Charlize Theron . We can see it in this clip.

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.
