One fan also asked Eric Kripke about his biggest regret about The Boys season 2. The showrunner admitted that one of the top five regrets of the season is to have Doppelganger – as Homelander, of course – follow through with his offer of oral sex. He said, “I feel like we left money on the table with that one.”
Eric Kripke added, “Because he’s right there! And you’re like ‘Oh my God, he’s gonna do it!’ But then we pull back, and it’s like, the money move would’ve been for him to actually do it.”
Meanwhile, Szpak-Fleet, the charge of The Boys’ visual effects, spoke to ComicBook about how they managed to put together the famous whale scene. He said, “I mean, I think they were telling me they had like 150 buckets of blood or gallons of blood for the whale sequence or something like that…with the whale, we had a lot of practical blood, and then as Eric has said on social media and stuff and in other interviews, they built this giant whale set that we didn’t have to do very much work to. We added a little bit of wetness to it here and there, but it was real.”
He added, “We had a real set and I’m telling you when you’re an actor or crew member or anybody and you go up and you see this real exploded whale set, it’s different, man. It connects with you in a different way than if I would have just put up a green tennis ball, so it was still the right way to go. It’s another reason why I love working on the show is we get to work with people and do things like that in that kind of way. It’s just so cool.”
