By Creative Media TimesA new trailer for Amazon Video upcoming superhero tv series “The Boys” has hit the web and its the right combo of weird and awesome.
“Job one is supporting the seven brave heroes who put themselves in harm’s way each and every day for us,” someone says on the trailer, to which “Wee” Hughie Campbell (played by Jack Quaid) explicitly responded to.
Developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen, “The Boys” is an adaptation of the comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson which was originally published in 2006 by DC Comics imprint WildStorm and then later picked up by Dynamite Entertainment.
The trailer is violent and offbeat as one might expect from Ennis, who also serves as one of the executive producers.
There is plenty of talent involved in this, including Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Elisabeth Shue as Madelyn Stillwell, Erin Moriarty as Annie January / Starlight, Dominique McElligott as Queen Maeve, Jessie Usher as A-Train, Chace Crawford as The Deep, Nathan Mitchell as Black Noir, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Karen Fukuhara as Female and Tomer Kapon as Frenchie.
“The Boys” is set to be released on Amazon Prime Video sometime in 2019.
See official synopsis below:
In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, The Boys centers 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. THE BOYS is scheduled for a 2019 release.
