"Fuck those fuckers."
People love that cozy feeling that superheroes give them, but if you knew half of the things they are up to…diabolical. Time to declare war.
Everyone always thinks so highly of the good superheroes but rarely do they think about the collateral damage they cause during their battles. In comes "The Boys," a team assembled to keep them in check and make them pay for their reckless actions.
The first season arrives on Amazon Prime July 26th, 2019. The series has already been renewed for a second season.
Check out the final trailer below ahead of this week's premiere.
The series is an 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 their formidable Vought backing.
The Boys are Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games”), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso, Detroit), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, "Hostages"), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad). Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) guest stars as Hughie’s father.
The Supes of The Seven are led by Homelander (Antony Starr, "Banshee") who is joined by Starlight (Erin Moriarty, Captain Fantastic), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott, "House of Cards"), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher, Independence Day: Resurgence), The Deep (Chace Crawford, "Gossip Girl") and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell, "Supernatural").
The series hails from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the duo who brought us AMC’s "Preacher".
