The Boys Fans Have Already Crowned A Favorite Gen V Star

Although fans of Amazon's notoriously dark superhero series "The Boys" still have a long way to go before the premiere of Season 4, in the meantime, the franchise itself will be expanding with the upcoming spinoff series "Gen V," which takes a closer look at what life is like for college-aged superheroes in "The Boys" satirized version of the United States. Specifically, the show will focus on young Supes enrolled at the Godolkin University School of Crimefighting, a school organized by Vought International and helmed by the mysterious John Godolkin.

According to Variety, the series itself is "an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supers as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test... it's part college show, part 'Hunger Games.'" Now, fans have finally gotten their first glimpse of the upcoming spinoff series through a short trailer courtesy of Amazon Prime Video — a trailer that certainly leans into the black humor and bloody mayhem we've come to expect from "The Boys." Despite the fact that this trailer actually includes less than a minute of footage from the series itself, fans online appear to have already crowned their favorite "Gen V" star based on this brief teaser — as viewers across social media are raving about series lead Jaz Sinclair.

Fans are already singing praises for Jaz Sinclair

In "Gen V," Jaz Sinclair plays the lead character of Marie Monreau — a young Supe who first appeared in Season 3 of "The Boys" when her file is discovered during Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) and Starlight's (Erin Moriarty) mission to the Red River Institute. Most of the trailer for "Gen V" is focused on Marie's horror at the bloody, violent lifestyle that she encounters upon entering Godolkin University, and the trailer ends with a shot of Marie covered in blood.

Fans online were quick to express their overwhelming excitement at seeing Jaz Sinclair at the head of this upcoming spinoff series — with some fans already claiming that this show will catapult Sinclair into superstardom. "JAZ SINCLAIR ILY THIS IS HER SHOW," wrote @ambicthous." "YOU DONT GET IT JAZ SINCLAIR IS ABOUT TO BE A HOUSEHOLD NAME JUST WAIT AND SEE," asserted @Jasimidaisies. Several users, including @Irisbarryy, are even saying they would legitimately fight for Sinclair and Marie Monreau if they need to — despite the fact that the character has only appeared in a small trailer.

The overwhelming amount of praise and support Jaz Sinclair has received makes it clear that she already has an extremely strong online following, and it's worth mentioning that her previous work includes several high-profile projects like "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," "The Vampire Diaries," and John Green's "Paper Towns." In any case, it seems as though fans across social media are incredibly excited to see Jaz Sinclair in the leading role of "Gen V," though for now, we'll just have to wait and see if she can live up to this immense hype on-screen.
