The boys season 4

As we prepare to see The boys season 4 on Prime Video, it’s clear that we’re seeing total chaos within the Seven!

Now we know there are some new people coming on board here in Firecracker and Sage. Then there’s the mystery of Black Noir. The former Black Noir, aka Irving, died at the hands of Homelander at the end of the season 3 finale; However, the public does not know that this is happening. Nathan Mitchell played the character in the past and he will appear under the suit again. At the same time, however, he is not playing the same character.

We know theories abound as to who this “new” Black Noir could be, and we’ll have to wait and see as time goes on. However, showrunner Eric Kripke shared at least a few thoughts on the subject to Entertainment Weekly:

…It would spoil some of the fun if we reveal who it is and what that person is like… I will say that in a world that revolves around a certain amount of show business satire, it’s funny to watch an anonymous superhero to go and say, ‘We need you to take on this performance and you will be completely anonymous, but you will play this other role.’ That’s a funny challenge for an actor.

We imagine that a big part of the fun for Mitchell will be finding a way to incorporate some physicality that looks and feels different. The OG Black Noir was extremely formidable, and we’re sure the new one will be too. But at the same time, let’s hope it’s formidable in a slightly different way and isn’t just a repeat of what we’ve seen before.
