First look at “You’re The Worst” Star, Aya Cash as the Nazi superhero StormFront in Amazon’s “The Boys” season 2! The comic character’s gender has changed from male to female in the show.
Per Entertainment Weekly:
“She’s the grenade that gets thrown into Homelander’s world and the world of the Seven,” says Antony Starr, who plays Homelander, the sociopathic leader of the secretly corrupt superhero team, the Seven. “She really causes me so many problems.”
The Boys showrunner Eric Kripkeand his cast — including Karl Urban(Billy), Jack Quaid (Hughie), Erin Moriarty (Starlight), and Chace Crawford (The Deep) — will assemble at PaleyFest for a panel in Los Angeles on March 15. Before that happens, EW can unveil the first photos of the newest supe coming to stir up the on-going war between the Boys and the “superheroes” of the Seven.
In the comics, Stormfront is male, a riff on Thor and Shazam! with a little Nazism thrown in. The nuance of how that translates to the show remains a spoiler, but Cash does reveal that her character comes with her own agenda. “I think Stormfront is like a nuclear bomb that goes off in the Seven,” she says in between filming on the show’s Toronto set. “Maybe nuclear bomb isn’t the right word. We’re in Chernobyl. There you go. It’s a Chernobyl thing.” Meaning, if everything feels at ease, it’s just ’cause we’re in the eye of the… well, you know.
