She joins other recently announced recurring cast members Sean Patrick Flanery as Gunpowder, Miles Gaston Villanueva as Supersonic, and Nick Wechsler as Blue Hawk.

Jensen Ackles will appear as Soldier Boy.

“The Boys” is based on the New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

It takes place in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive fame, and centres on a group of vigilantes known informally as “the boys” who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.

The series is developed by showrunner Eric Kripke, who also serves as writer and executive producer.

Other executive producers are Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver, Original Film’s Neal H Moritz and Pavun Shetty as well as Phil Sgriccia, Craig Rosenberg, Rebecca Sonnenshine, Ken Levin and Jason Netter.

Sony Pictures Television Studios and Amazon Studios are producing “The Boys” with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film.
