Season 4 of The Boys is only in its first three episodes, but the Prime Video series has already delivered moments that have surprised fans in many ways, from the little joke with Starlight to the homage to The Human Centipede.

However, one of the most salacious moments centered around Victoria Neuman receiving a photo of Billy Butcher’s butt. While many viewers believed that it was the real posterior of its interpreter, namely actor Karl Urban, Kripke finally revealed the true identity behind the shocking image.

“Because hundreds of you have asked: #TheBoys Season 4 Episode 1’s butt is NOT Butcher’s (or Karl’s). We hired a model (I don’t know his name). I chose the photo, from about 20 different behind shots. Yes, Hollywood is a glamorous dream factory.”

While the photo of Butcher’s posterior probably surprised viewers as much as Neuman, it turns out that the latter’s reaction was also completely authentic. The showrunner explained that they showed the real photo to actress Claudia Doumit during filming.

“When Claudia was shooting the scene, for all the wide shots, it’s a blue screen. We can’t see what’s on the phone, so it reacts to a blue screen,” Kripke explained to Collider. “And then, when we did method acting close-ups, we put the real butt on the phone, so his reaction is his real reaction to seeing that butt. I don’t know if we should feel good or horrible about that, but that’s how we got a real reaction from Claudia.”

Butcher’s stunt may have been incredibly crude and crude even for him, but the ex-Boys frontman actually had good intentions in sending it to Victoria.

Throughout Episode 1 of Season 4, Victoria kept contacting Butcher to form an alliance, as she needed his help to compile all the files that Hughie was using to blackmail her.

In return for his help, Victoria promised to keep Ryan away from Homelander so that Butcher could save him and keep his promise to his late wife Becca.

But, even though he’s currently on bad terms with the Boys, Butcher has proven his loyalty to the team and exposed his private parts to protect them.
