Heading for Amazon Prime Video in the summer, watch the latest trailer for The Boys...
In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, The Boys centres on a group of vigilantes known informally as “The Boys,” who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than their blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty. The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and Vought – the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes.
Based on the graphic novel series from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, the concept was adapted by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who were also behind bringing Preacher to the small screen. With Garth Ennis and Eric Kripke working on scripting duty, The Boys stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Erin Moriarty, Jennifer Esposito, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capon, and Karen Fukuhara with Elisabeth Shue as head of Vought.
