Are Our Superheroes-Gone-Rogue Getting as High as the Drug-Crazed Bear? What Is the ‘The Boys’ Hinting at From ‘Cocaine Bear’

Directed by Elizabeth Banks, the comic thriller Cocaine Bear recently hit the theatres just the day before yesterday, on the 24th of February, 2023. The perfect cast leaning into silliness while also keeping respect for the classic horror movie vibes with their retro soundtracks intact has left the audience more than elated. More than the fans, we have got a legitimate cult-classic blockbuster, The Boys franchise celebrating nostalgia of its own. 

The Amazon Prime video classic has got a separate fanbase. Quite contrary to the lesser violence and subdued gore and grotesqueness of the Cocaine Bear, The Boys’ sudden head explosions and blood-curdling aesthetic violence have made it a genre of its own. However upon greater introspection, one can realize there might be certain points where both could tap.

Luckily, having watched the entire catastrophe unfold all over, Billy Butcher comes to the rescue by throwing Termite into a pack of cocaine and shaking his life out of it.
