The Anti-Targ Posted July 30, 2019 Share Posted July 30, 2019 The lack of awareness in this thread of what constitutes an Australian accent really surprises me. I thought Ausssie accents were more widely known. I really can't understand how anyone could regard Urban's accent as anything other than a poorly executed lower-class English accent. I think it's a bit unfair for Starr to take the piss out of Urban for the accent. Starr had several seasons of Banshee to refine his American accent. I think Urban really only had a few scenes in Ragnarok to try on his lower-class Brit accent. I do have to admit that I completely failed to recognise that Homelander is played by Antony Starr. But in my defence I haven't yet watched the entirety of any TV series he's been in. So when he's disguised with short blonde hair and clean shaven I can be forgiven for not recognising him. The Boys is the first of his TV shows that I've watched an entire season. 6 hours ago, Corvinus said: I think Karl Urban watched Snatch or maybe Lock, Stock & 2 Smocking Barrels in preparation for his role, and did something like that. His accent does seem to be a bit of a running joke throughout between Homelander saying "nice accent" and the one cop asking him what kind of accent is that. I could definitely hear a bit of his native NZ accent, so hopefully it was all on purpose. It might be that Butcher is someone who partially grew up in Australia, and partially in the UK. Piss off with that. If there is a deliberate NZ overtone to his English accent then Butcher definitely partially grew up in NZ. 6 hours ago, Heartofice said: All I will say is that Butcher has to be Australian. His use of ‘you’re a good cunt’ was very revealing. Wrong, we (though not me personally), use that phrase too. In terms of performance, I think Antony Starr should at least be considered for an Emmy as best supporting actor. I watched a Youtube that speculated about how supes are going to break in season 2, it suggested Spoiler Maeve (will find her heart), Starlight (obviously), the Deep (because of being permanently sidelined and excluded from the military), and A-Train (finding out about Compound V and trying to deal with his addiction) will all break from Vought. So Homelander and Black Noir would be the only current members of the 7 to stay with Vought. Personally I think A-Train and the Deep don't (yet) have the courage to leave Vought, but maybe they will during season 2, though I think both may also end up hating Vought but staying because they want to status and wealth that comes with being a Vought supe. I also predict that Starlight will be the second supe to prove to be fertile, either by the end of Season 2, or in season 3, if there is one.
