Jeffrey Dean Morgan Not Playing Tek Knight In The Boys Season 4 – What Role Could He Have Instead?

Morgan's presence is sure to pack a punch in season 4

Key Takeaways

  • Speculation surrounding Jeffrey Dean Morgan playing Tek Knight has been debunked.
  • In the first season of the “Gen V” spin-off, Derek Wilson played Tek Knight.
  • While we don’t know his exact role yet, the showrunner has teased that Morgan’s mysterious character will be a real “badass.”

While fans initially speculated that Jeffrey Dean Morgan would play the highly anticipated character Tek Knight when he joins the cast of “The Boys” season 4, those theories have been debunked.

In the first season of the “Gen V” spin-off, Derek Wilson played Tek Knight.

So if Morgan isn’t bringing the Iron Man/Batman-parody Tek Knight to life, what role does he have in store for “The Boys?

There are a few possibilities from the comic book source material that could be a good fit.

Malchemical is the leader of Super Duper, a team of young, naive superheroes (Source: the-boys.fandom)

One option is for Morgan to take on the villainous Malchemical, a sadistic shapeshifter who leads the team Super Duper.

Given Morgan’s ability to play menacing characters like Negan on “The Walking Dead,” the cruel and power-abusing Malchemical could make sense.

John Godolkin is the leader of G-Men, the main antagonists of the “We Gotta Go Now” arc (Source: comicvine.gamespot)

Another comic character Morgan could play is John Godolkin, the founder of Godolkin University, who gave the “Gen V” spin-off its name.

Godolkin is essentially a parody of Professor X with similar despicable pedophilic tendencies, making him one of the vile antagonists that Morgan could bring to life.

However, it’s also very possible Morgan is playing an entirely original character created for the show.

Some set photos depicted him in a business suit, suggesting he could be a corporate figure at Vought or someone tied to Victoria Neuman’s political storyline rather than an actual Supe.

While we don’t know his exact role yet, the showrunner has teased that Morgan’s mysterious character will be a real “badass.”

Whether he ends up as a familiar face from the comics or a brand-new addition, Morgan’s presence is sure to pack a punch in season 4.

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • Although “The Boys” has become synonymous with Amazon Prime, showrunner Eric Kripke initially pitched it to Cinemax.
  • Compared to the comic book, the series “The Boys” has been toned down for TV given its violent and bloody content.
  • Some Toronto residents were unhappy with the series shooting in their area, believing the show showcased their area in a bad light.
