Movie fans will tell you the best revenge stories are served cold. But for Laz Alonso and Raúl Castillo, Guy Ritchie’s new armored-truck thriller “Wrath of Man” has also served a warm payback for them as Latino actors. “To be able to see yourself represented, it validates your existence. It...
With Guy Ritchie’s Wrath of Man opening in theaters this weekend, I recently spoke to Laz Alonso about making the action-thriller. Based on the 2004 French action-thriller Le Convoyeur, Wrath of Man follows a security guard named H (Jason Statham) who has an ulterior motive when he takes a job working for an armored truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week. Unlike the previous Ritchie and Statham films which had funny moments and quirky characters, Wrath of Man has a more serious tone that will keep you guessing all the way through. The film was written by Ritchie, Ivan Atkinson, and Marn Davies and also stars Josh Hartnett, Scott Eastwood, Holt McCallany, Jeffrey Donovan, Raul Castillo, Niamh Algar, and Post Malone.
One thing that fans have come to learn from the creative team of The Boys is they don’t do anything half-ass, and they don’t hold back on the over-the-top insanity of the story. The first couple of seasons have been awesome and if you think you’ve already seen a lot of blood in the show… think again.
If you thought season 2 of The Boys was violent, just wait for season 3. When the satirical superhero series debuted on Amazon Prime Video in 2019, it began with a speedy superhero literally running through a woman, setting the stage for the extreme bloody violence that would follow in later episodes. Season 2 had an ending that was particularly explosive, but it sounds like even that will be nothing compared to what's ahead in the next season.
Filming is underway on The Boys Season 3, and it sounds like Amazon Prime Video's gory superhero series will be bloodier than ever. The series has already seen multiple limbs being ripped off, people being burned by laser vision, and a rapidly rising number of heads exploding — and fans should not expect that to change when the new episodes premiere. While Mother's Milk actor Laz Alonso has been safe in the surprising and violent series so far, his character is usually involved in incidents that end up with him covered in blood. We're guessing there's going to be a lot more of that in Season 3 of The Boys.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but according to Laz Alonso, it’s a dish that shouldn’t be served at all. In his latest film, Wrath of Man, Laz enters an action packed world of robbery and revenge. But, when asked about his own take on getting someone back, the 47-year-old says that at this point in his life revenge no longer serves him.
"I'll put it to you this way," Alonso tells Collider. "I was talking to the head makeup artist and she's in charge of ordering the blood — that's one of her many jobs. She told me that all of Season 2... When you talk about bulk, I don't think they used over a gallon of blood in Season 2, believe it or not. Season 3, we're already at three and a half gallons of blood. So that should give you a little indication of where it's going."
'The Boys' Star Laz Alonso Says Season 3 Won't Just Be Darker — It'll Be Literally 3 Times Bloodier Than Season 2
When last we left Amazon's The Boys, some redemption might have been at hand for some characters, but a collection of new threats had either been revealed or teased as being a big part of Season 3. So here's some good news: according to star Laz Alonso, the show is deep into production on new episodes. In fact, Alonso, who Collider's Steve Weintraub recently interviewed about his upcoming film The Wrath of Man, revealed they are "between one-fourth of the way through and halfway through" shooting the new season.
The Boys Star Laz Alonso Speaks on Mother's Milk Special Connection With Butcher in Official Podcast (Exclusive)
A brand new episode of The Boys: The Official Podcast is scheduled to be released tomorrow and ahead of its debut ComicBook.com has an exclusive excerpt from series star Laz Alonso. Speaking with host and superfan Tim Kash, Alonso opened up about the relationship between his character Mother's Milk and Karl Urban's Billy Butcher. Though MM's role in the team is lower on the pecking order than Butcher, the pair still have an equal footing together in private and as Alonso puts it, there's a bit of a morality check at play between the pair and Mother's Milk might be the last thing keeping Butcher from the edge.
One of the most memorable moments in “The Boys” Season 2 was a gross-out fight scene between Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) and Love Sausage, a Russian superhero with a long snake-like penis. The scene includes one moment where Mother’s Milk gets strangled by Love Sausage’s 10 foot “weapon,” which left Laz Alonso humorously seeking revenge on “The Boys” showrunner Eric Kripke. Payback has now been served in the form of Alonso’s holiday gift to Kripke: A knitted scarf that resembles Love Sausage’s love sausage.
‘The Boys’ Actor Laz Alonso Got His ‘Love Sausage’ Revenge On Showrunner Eric Kripke With A Holiday Gift
In the second season of The Boys, viewers got to meet the live-action version of Love Sausage, a Russian superhero from the comic book series whose power is having a graphically long… well, you can figure out from the name. As part of his debut, Love Sausage wrapped his super appendage around the neck of Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) and tried to choke the life out of him, which isn’t a superhero battle you see everyday. As revenge for putting him in the phallic scene, Alonso had a very special scarf made for showrunner Eric Kripke, who tweeted a NSFW photo of the holiday “gift.”
