Amazon Execs Put A Stop To The Boys' Original NSFW Idea For The Deep

Amazon Execs Put A Stop To The Boys' Original NSFW Idea For The Deep

Although you’d think it’d be the show’s anti-corporate themes that Amazon would most have a problem with, their few concerns about the show seem to be sex-related. Season 1 featured a scene of Homelander masturbating over the New York City skyline while muttering “I can do whatever I want” over and over again, but Amazon demanded it be cut. Eric Kripke was confused by their stance on this — “I couldn’t quite understand why, considering everything else we have in the show,” he told ComingSoon — this was why hardcore fans cheered as Kripke managed to slip the scene into the season 2 finale instead.

As for The Deep’s reduced penis, it’s easy to see the reasoning behind it. His distractingly large love sausage would work just fine for a one-off joke, but less so for a character who Annie supposedly had a crush on growing up. Would Annie’s mom really let her put The Deep posters on her childhood bedroom wall if those posters looked like how they did on that calendar? Probably not. The joke about The Deep’s bulge would also probably get old after the first two or three times we saw it, but then he’d be stuck with it forever. 

“To be clear, they’ve been great,” Kripke said about Amazon. “That may have been the ONLY fight I lost in season 1.” Sure enough, the show has a level of sexual content that most TV shows could never in a million years get away with. For example: a female supe’s orgasm is so powerful that it blows a dude’s head off. The season 3 premiere opens with an Ant-Man-type character accidentally expanding inside a man’s urethra, and that once-cut Homelander scene probably didn’t do much to give the show a cleaner reputation.
