It appears the show has taken some liberties with the costume and made some slight changes. In the comics, the suit featured much shorter pant legs and included short sleeves as well. However, as can be seen above, this suit appears similar to a tracksuit with much longer arms and legs.
In the set photo, Soldier Boy can be seen arriving at the world premiere of Dawn of the Seven, the fictional movie the Seven were filming during season 2 of The Boys. Other stars were also on set for the scene, including Dominique McElligott’s Queen Maeve, Jessie Usher’s A-Train, Erin Moriarty’s Starlight, and Antony Starr’s Homelander.
