It looks like The Boys is wasting no time casting the members of Payback for Season 3. According to Insider Daniel Richtman, the series is looking to cast Crimson Countess.
A member of Payback, Crimson Countess was an ally of Soldier Boy and a skilled heroine that served in World War II. The original version of the character, Delilah Petrov, was a young Russian girl who was gifted powers through Compound V. After being injected with the serum she found she had powers similar to that of Marvel’s Scarlet Witch. There was also a second Crimson Countess that appeared later with similar abilities to the original.
Previous reports have revealed that Season 3 of The Boys is set to focus on Soldier Boys’ past and Payback. With members including Eagle the Archer, Tek Knight, Swatto, Crimson Countess and Stormfront, the team was “the Seven before the Seven,” according to showrunner Erik Kripke. Currently, there is no word on who will portray Crimson Countess in the next season, or who will join the cast as her fellow members of Payback.
The first two seasons of The Boys are currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. The series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, and Elisabeth Shue.
