‘The Boys’ Showrunner Says ‘Women Get It Finished’ Was Impressed By ‘Avengers: Endgame’
“Girls get it done!” in The Boys season two was inspired by the controversial moment in Avengers: Endgame featuring the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s female heroes.
The Boys notably serves as satire for all superhero content from Marvel to DC by poking fun at its characters, tropes, and more. During season two, Vought tries to push the female heroes of The Seven with the slogan “Girls get it done!” This even leads a shot in the fictional movie for The Seven with Stormfront, Starlight, and Queen Maeve united. This moment in The Boys season two led to some comparisons with the A-Force scene in Avengers: Endgame some fans felt was forced.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke revealed that while he is a massive fan of the movies from Marvel Studios, the “Girls get it done!” aspect of the second season was inspired by the controversial moment in Avengers: Endgame:
“A lot of that came from our executive producer, Rebecca Sonneshine, who came in after the weekend Endgame opened. She was just furious. I saw it, too, and I was like, ‘That was the dumbest, most contrived—’ And she’s like, ‘Don’t get me started.’ She found it condescending and I agreed. So that just created for us a target, a satirical target. When there’s something really ridiculous in either superhero or celebrity or Hollywood culture, we’ll immediately go after it. It’s an easy shot.”

Here is the official synopsis for the second season of The Boys:
The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, Aya Cash, and Colby Minifie.
