Not long after being officially announced, The Boys spinoff series has found its first two Supes. Still untitled as fo yet, the spinoff has been in development at Amazon Studios since last year based on the success of the incredibly popular parent series. Now the new show officially has its first two cast members, as Lizze Broadway (The Rookie) has been tapped to star as Emma, one of the leading roles. It has also been revealed that Jaz Sinclair (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) will co-star as Marie.
Broadway most recently had a role on the TV series The Rookie, following roles on other shows like Here and Now, NCIS, and Splitting Up Together. Meanwhile, Jaz Sinclair is best known for her role as Rosalind Walker on all four seasons of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. She also had a role in the horror movie Slender Man and her other TV credits include The Vampire Diaries and Easy.

Some character details for the the G-Men spinoff have also recently been revealed. Per The Illuminerdi, the Emma character played by Broadway is an 18-year-old woman described as “sweet, devoted, compassionate, and lovably neurotic bordering on pathological.” She is also said to be the daughter of a famous Supe, though it’s not clear which one, and Emma is determined not to let this legacy define her life.
Emma is also “excited to begin college and make lifelong friends especially after being bounced from boarding school, set trailer, and summer camps all her life. Emma bonds rapidly and ferociously and although she appears to be an open book to everyone she is especially good at hiding things from those she loves. Emma is hiding a scandalous secret about who she really is and worries if she is discovered that people will be repulsed by her.”
It was also reported that Marie is another 18-year-old who motivated, bold, and determined. As the Caribbean’s first and only Supe, she is determined to prove that “a little Black girl from the Caribbean can grow up to become one of the world’s greatest superheroes.” Marie also has “the pride of her nation and her family’s financial future riding on her shoulders” but remains focused on rising to the top of the competitive superhero college. Like Emma, she will be a lead character and series regular.
Taking inspiration from the G-Men, an X-Men parody team from the original comics, the spinoff will be set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes. The show is described as an “irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games – with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys.”
The first two seasons of The Boys are now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, and the third season is currently filming. New episodes will likely arrive sometime this fall. Meanwhile, no release date has been set for the G-Men spinoff series. With casting information coming to light, it would appear that the project is on the fast track towards production.
