Hilariously Bloody New Trailer Arrives for Nutty Superhero Series ‘The Boys’



Amazon Prime

A decidedly red band new trailer has been released for upcoming Amazon Prime series The Boys, an adaptation of the best-selling comics of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson.

The new series will be following the titular group of badass vigilantes that are recruited to take down The Seven, notorious superheroes whose atrocities are being swept under the rug. It’s kind of what Batman decided to do when he took on Superman in BvS, following the destruction he believed Supes was responsible for at the end of Man of Steel. Here though, things really ain’t that grim and serious.



This looks gleefully irreverent, and very fun. The adult angle most certainly isn’t a new thing to tackle in the superhero screen world, particularly since Deadpool raked in the money and shows like Titans and The Umbrella Academy started exploring more mature themes, but there’s a confidence and slickness here that really has us pumped. The budget looks insane, too. Check out the very entertaining trailer below.

The Boys, starring Karl Urban, Karen Fukuhara, Laz Alonso, Tomer Kapon, Anthony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jesse T. Usher, Chance Crawford, Simon Pegg and Jack Quaid, will begin on Amazon Prime on July 26.

Official synopsis for The Boys:

Supes have been committing atrocities, which keep getting swept under the rug because they are revered by the adoring public. Billy Butcher recruits The Boys who have all been wronged by The Seven, the world’s most notorious superheroes, to bring them down and stop the corruption. Based on the best-selling comics by Garth Ennis, The Boys is a revenge story where the nobodies take on the somebodies.
