Will Black Noir return in 'The Boys' Season 4? Nathan Mitchell spotted on sets of hit Amazon show
'The Boys' Season 4 will see a character back from the dead. Nathan Mitchell's Black Noir was one of the superheroes to have died in the last installment, but the silent assassin was spotted on the sets of Season 4. Now, the news doesn't entirely come as a surprise, as showrunner Eric Kripke had earlier revealed that the show would be bringing him back, although the extent of his role is unknown.
"A character who is completely silent and in a black mask can be recast," Kripke told EW earlier this year, and that meant that there was always a window open for the supe to return. To quickly recap, Noir's death was gory as the leader of the Seven punches Noir in the stomach making sure the guts spill out. Literally. It doesn't help that Noir's death is grisly and graphic. That he killed the silent assassin never came as a surprise after the previous episode revealed that Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) was Homelander's father, and Noir, despite knowing it, kept the information a secret. This angers the psychotic supe who kills Noir and later threatens his remaining team members, The Deep (Chace Crawford) and A-Train, to stay away from him.
One of the ways the supe could be brought back is in the form of flashbacks, but there might also be an off-chance that Noir survived despite having a hole blown in him. Expect the major players and some of the new faces to return. Antony Starr will reprise his role as Homelander. Also joining will be Jack Quaid as Hughie Cambell, Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Erin Moriarty as Annie/Starlight, Jessie T Usher as A-Train, Chace Crawford as The Deep, Karen Fukuhara as Kimiko, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Claudia Doumit as Victoria Neuman, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Colby Minifie as Ashley, and Cameron Crovetti as Ryan.
'The Boys' Seasons 1- 3 is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
