The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke shared some new on-set photos of season three of the show, with particular emphasis on the in-universe movie ‘Dawn of the Seven’. There are two posters, which promote the “world premiere” of the film. The spotlight is on the stars, Homelander (Antony Starr) and Starlight (Erin Moriarty). The rating for the movie is PG-13, which is interesting when you consider how raunchy, gruesome and decidedly not kid-friendly The Boys is. Kripke further played up the release of the movie with the hashtag “#TheDawnIsComing.” Check out the showrunner’s post here:

The fact that the fictional promo posters feel like something out of the MCU or the DCEU is a great example of how the show draws inspiration from pop culture for its satire. Given how unpredictable and crazy the show’s sense of humour is, it’ll definitely be a blast to see what it does next.
