First, Ackles voiced Red Hood in the animated 2010 movie “Batman: Under the Red Hood.” 

Then in 2021, he voiced the Dark Knight in a two-part adaptation of “Batman: The Long Halloween.”

The “Supernatural” star told Entertainment Weekly that when he received a call about “Batman: The Long Halloween,” he assumed he’d reprise the role of Red Hood. 

“But then I realized I’d gotten the upgrade!” he said. “I don’t think they even got the whole word ‘Batman’ out. They were like, ‘Bat—’ and I was like, yes!”

Most recently Ackles joined “The Boys” as Soldier Boy, a supe who was Vought’s pride and joy long before Homelander (Antony Starr) was born in a lab. After escaping a lab in Russia, Soldier Boy sought revenge against his former team, known as Payback.  

It’s possible that Ackles may be involved in another DC Comics project in the future.

During an appearance on “Smallville” costar Michael Rosenbaum’s “Inside of You” podcast, released in January 2022, Ackles teased “a DC property that’s currently developing with Warner Bros. and some other good partners that I’ve got my fingers crossed for.”
