Superheroes Beware! Here's An All-New Trailer For Garth Ennis' The Boys
If you’re feeling a little fatigue from the superhero genre, then Amazon’s new show might be just for you. Granted, The Boys is story about superheroes and the world they live in, but it won’t be like anything we’ve seen. Ever.
Based on the utterly fascinating and completely bananas comic book from Garth Ennis, and starring Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as "Wee" Hughie Campbell, Karen Fukuhara as The Female, Laz Alonso as Mother's Milk Tomer Kapon as The Frenchman, The Boys is about a group of superpowered mercenaries who “police” those whom cannot be policed. Superheroes.
If one of the “Supes” breaks the law, The Boys savagely beat them until they see the error in their ways or die. Whichever happens first. And thanks to this new teaser, we see a glimpse of just how messed up some of these superheroes really are.
As it happens, some of the biggest pieces of shit are at the top of the superhero echelon, aka The Seven, or this world’s Avengers/Justice League. And as you’ve probably guessed, The Seven on a direct path to a showdown with The Boys. For those who haven’t read the comic, yes, it’s as awesome as you’re picturing.
The Boys will be available on Amazon Prime Video on July 26, 2019.
