The Boys Twitter account reacts to the official drop of the Thor: Love and Thunder trailer after having earlier demanded its release. Amazon Prime’s hit series The Boys will return this summer, with its recent teaser showcasing a third season that looks set to be just as cluttered as its predecessors. 

When the first trailer for season 3 of The Boys was released a month ago, the Amazon Prime Video series saw that Marvel director Taika Waititi was one of many to express his excitement. On Instagram, in a comment, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter wrote: “Fokk yeeeeeaaas,” prompting a response from The Boys to the account itself, adding:

A trailer for a trailer, @TaikaWaititi? Where’s Thor: Love and Thunder?” Four weeks later, Marvel Studios has premiered the first teaser for Thor: Love and Thunder, already racking up millions of views, giving The Boys a fulfilled guarantee. In reply to the trailer, the Boys wrote: “a month late, but we’ll take it.

The Boys and Thor’s leading DNA share is Karl Urban, who starred in Thor: Ragnarok as the Marvel character Skurge. In fact, between Billy Butcher and Skurge, Urban had made a big name for himself in comic book characters, recreating Judge Dredd in the cult hit Dredd 3D and voicing DC’s Sergeant Rock in two animated releases. July is going to be a big-time for fans of comic book material as both the season 3 finale of Thor: Love and Thunder and The Boys will both be released. It appears unlikely that Urban will be reprising his part in Love and Thunder, but we can still hope.

In the last interview, Urban opened up about the difference that this will bring out in Butcher for the series and how it gets down to the root of the series. Urban said to Entertainment Weekly.

“That is the dilemma: does Butcher become a superhero or a supervillain? To defeat the monster, do you become the monster? And I think that is one of the cool things about this season is every character is faced with that choice. How far are they willing to go? What line are they willing to cross to achieve what they want to achieve? It creates a conflict for all the characters on the show, and it’s fun to see who ends up on whose side.”

These upcoming projects hit screens, and it’s certainly exciting to hear that the two franchises are equally excited about one another’s release. While The Boys’ Twitter account may not have received the trailer exactly when they liked it, it is clear that the team is among the majority who were delighted to see an official Thor 4 update eventually drop and offer the first official glance at what is to come. With its first trailer out, the Thor: Love and Thunder release date is yet set for July 8. No doubt The Boys will weigh in after their first watch.
