Gen V Season 1: The first dramatic trailer for Gen V, the college-themed spin-off of The Boys, has been out and sees as exciting and gory as the original. Gen V has been compared to “part college show, half Hunger Games” and stars Jaz Sinclair, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Lizzie Broadway, Shelley Conn, Chance Perdomo, London Thor, Asa Germann, Maddie Phillips and Derek Luh as students at a college for Supes.
The trailer begins with a golden statue of Homelander on the campus and the narration, “Welcome to Godolkin University, a haven for you to thrive. In the trailer, Jaz Sinclair’s character appears to have two bleeding, flailing appendages that appear to be her hands. They resemble Spider-web-shooters Man’s but are far more horrifying.
Sean Patrick Thomas, Marco Pigossi, Clancy Brown, Alexander Calvert and Jason Ritter are among the actors shown in the trailer, along with a puppet that is subsequently beheaded. Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie and P.J. Byrne all make cameo appearances in the trailer, reprising their respective parts from The Boys.
According to the official summary, Gen V takes place at Vought International’s superhero-only college in America. A satirical, R-rated sitcom called Gen V follows the lives of hormonal, ambitious Supes as they push the limits of their physical, se*ual and morality to win the most significant contracts in the best cities.
It has all the heart, sarcasm, and profanity of The Boys and is a cross between a college show and The Hunger Games. Eric Kripke, the showrunner of The Boys, had stated this about the spin-off series: “We were interested in: “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could take superheroes and produce one of the most realistic college shows that’s ever been made?” Since they aren’t produced frequently.
All The Boys Easter Eggs & Characters In The Gen V Trailer
The First Gen V trailer contains Easter eggs from The Boys and references to Homelander and Vought. Gen V, The Boys’ second spinoff after The Boys Presents: Diabolical will expand on the comics’ We Gotta Go Now arc.
Gen V will follow Marie Moreau and other young supes in The Boys’ universe and is characterized as “college show meets Hunger Games.” Gen V references The Boys and their characters like Diabolical.
Given the success of The Boys, two spinoffs were inevitable. Before The Boys returns for season 4, audiences can relive Gen V. Gen V will follow essentially unique characters. However, The Boys’ familiar faces will appear. Gen V will reveal how extensive Vought’s power and influence are expanding The Boys season 1’s universe. The Gen V trailer has The Boys’ Easter eggs and characters.
Marie Moreau Was In The Boys
Marie Moreau isn’t in The Boys. Therefore little can be said about the Gen V protagonist. Marie Moreau debuted in The Boys. Hughie and Starlight find a “Marie M.” file for 17-year-old supers while examining Victoria Neuman’s past at the Red Institute. Given that Gen V is intended to run concurrently with The Boys, Marie Moreau should be 17 during season 3. Marie will be a first-year super college student in Gen V, suggesting a year between seasons 3 and 4.
The Boys’ painfully comedic humor continues in Gen V, as shown in the trailer’s Lamplighter statue. The Boys’ season 1 indicated Lamplighter was retiring, yet he returned in season 2. Starlight joined The Seven to replace Lamplighter, who was relegated from The Seven to a Sage Grove Center employee. Given his tangled history with The Seven, Vought never made Lamplighter’s death public.
A Vought institution’s Homelander statue is expected. Homelander is the Seven’s leader and Vought’s central hero. Given how The Boys season 3 concluded, watching how young supes view The Seven’s leader now that much about Homelander is public will be intriguing.
Gen V will presumably cover a post-The Boys season 3 timeline, so it will illustrate how Homelander and Ryan’s smile in front of their supporters impacted how the world perceives Vought’s most powerful supes.
A-Train Vending Machine
A vending machine in Gen V’s trailer references The Boys’ A-Train. Near the A-Train vending machine, a door with the word “murderer” written on it suggests A-reputation Train may not be repaired after The Boys season 1.
A-Train killed Hughie’s girlfriend Robin while on Compound V, which Vought called an accident. Given how often The Boys’ supes do something terrible to stay renowned, whoever protested A-Train on campus must also be against Vought’s approach to The Seven.
Black Noir Sign On The Door
Gen V’s trailer mentions more than Lamplighter, Homelander and A-Train. A “don’t enter” sign with Black Noir appears twice in the Gen V trailer, once at the A-Train vending machine and again elsewhere. Black Noir died at the end of The Boys season 3, so it will be intriguing to see how Vought will publicly cope with his death. The Boys season 4 will include a new Black Noir, hinting Vought may never reveal his demise.
Queen Maeve Movie Poster
The Boys include humorous fictional movies starring The Seven and other Vought supes. The Boys imitated Marvel and DC superhero films from Homelander Origins to Dawn of the Seven. Gen V’s trailer shows the influence of Vought’s superhero movies featuring The Seven.
A character’s bedroom features an upside-down Queen Maeve poster. Queen Maeve: Her Majesty appears at Vought in season 1 of The Boys.
Sage Grove Center Easter Egg
Sage Grove Center is a Vought mental health center introduced in season 2 of The Boys. Sage Grove Center was where Vought conducted Compound V experiments on humans, like everything he did.
The Sage Grove Center is where Lamplighter worked before betraying Vought, and The Boys season 2 introduced Cindi, who may appear in Gen V. A character in Sage Grove Center patient attire is carried by many security guards in the Gen V trailer, hinting they may be a power up.
Ashley Barret Appears In Gen V
Adam Bourke Appears In Gen V
Gen V stars P.J. Byrnes as The Boys’ Adam Bourke. Adam Bourke directed some of Vought’s most important films, including Dawn of the Seven, an homage to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. In season 2 of The Boys, Bourke pitched Vought The Seven’s following flicks. Ashley and Bourke’s affair was revealed in The Boys season 3’s premiere, Dawn of the Seven. Bourke’s Gen V involvement is unknown.
A-Train Appears In Gen V
Gen V stars Jessie Usher as The Boys’ A-Train. A-Train, the most notable The Boys cameo in Gen V thus far, was first referenced in the trailer’s vending machine Easter egg and then appeared in person at the end. A-interview Train at Vought’s Tower suggests Gen V won’t be limited to college. A-Train is one of The Seven’s few remaining Homelander loyalists following The Boys season 3, which may boost his popularity.
Vought and The Seven’s PR disaster The Deep. The Deep is one of the few supes Homelander can trust. Hence he remains a member of The Seven after The Boys season 3. Deep’s commitment to Homelander explains his return to the Gen V trailer. Gen V teaser features a Sesame Street-inspired The Deep puppet. The Deep’s Gen V appearance is unclear.
Red River Institute Easter Egg
Vought influenced private colleges, mental health institutes, and a super orphanage. Victoria Neuman spent her childhood at the Red River Institute before being adopted by Stan Edgard. Like the Sage Grove Center, the Red River Institute was another Vought asset. Gen V may feature flashbacks of Marie Moreau’s time at the supes orphanage to flesh out the character.
