'The Boys' Debuts Its First Look at *drool* Jensen Ackles as 'Soldier Boy'

I’d like to note that being officially recognized as a Rowles man crush has been good for a lot of careers. I mean, when I first acknowledged Double-R as a man crush, he was basically best known for a laughable sitcom and as the fourth billed actor in Blade: Trinity and now look at him! Meanwhile, when I first developed my man crush on Jensen Ackles last summer, he was basically just some actor on a long-running but obscure CW series watched by only people who mix Cherry Coke Zero and cheap red wine. That’s a fact.

But look at him now! Jensen Ackles is poised to appear in the third season of Amazon’s most popular series besides Mrs. Maisel and Bosch, The Boys, where he will engage in an orgy during Herogasm as the series’ equivalent of Captain America. In fact, yesterday, Ackles — whose weary biceps can get it — revealed his shield on social media with a tease of his upcoming full costume.

Today, he followed through on that promise.

You want to better shot of that beautifully trimmed beard and aqua suit? Here you go:


You’re feeling that, huh? Well, don’t forget to thank me for making him my official current man crush, which is a bit like Oprah choosing a book for her book group. I am a star-maker, and finally, Jensen Ackles will be a star! You’re welcome!
