After Preacher, Seth Rogen is adapting another comic in the form of The Boys, which is based on the comics from Garth Ennis. Amazon Prime Video has just dropped a new trailer for the show, and it gives us more of this darker look at a world of superheroes.
Here’s the official description:
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.
Though I think most of the jabs are at the Justice League, I think this series has potential to make fun of all superhero properties. Especially with Avengers: Endgame dominating the box office this year, maybe the show has something funny to say about the likes or Iron Man or Thor. Funny that Karl Urban was actually in Thor: Ragnarok as well.
The Boys premieres on Amazon Prime Video on July 26.
