Homelander’s cameo in The Boys may have been an incredible moment for the show, but actor Antony Starr has revealed that filming it was a bit of a nightmare due to one particularly hairy stunt.
In new footage released by Culture Crave on X (formerly Twitter), Starr is shown harnessed in for a stunt where Homelander makes a dramatic entrance on the God U campus. As he’s hoisted higher and higher into the air for the flying scene, the New Zealand actor lets loose with a handful of choice profanities.
In another tweet, Culture Crave quotes Starr speaking on how he regretted agreeing to do the stunt. “That’s the face of a man going way too high into the sky and really wishes he said ‘stunt guy can do it,'” he said. “Genuinely don’t know how the fuck I didn’t pee the suit. Or worse.”
Starr also shared some behind-the-scenes pictures from filming the season finale on his Instagram, with the caption: “Face of regret. The place I went that caused the regret….high…. The boss that also regretted putting his actor that high.” Despite the stunt, the actor says he “had a great time on Gen V with the younglings.”
The Amazon Prime franchise will continue with a fourth season of The Boys coming next year, with the show likely showing some repercussions of the events of Gen V. A second season of Gen V has also been greenlit, though it doesn’t have a release window yet.
