Amazon Prime Video dropped the first official trailer The Boys Thursday afternoon, Seth Rogen comes out swinging!
The show was developed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Dan Trachtenberg directed the pilot. The Boys stars Karl Urban, Karen Fukuhara, Laz Alonso, Tomer Kapon, Anthony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jesse T. Usher, Chance Crawford, Simon Pegg, and Jack Quaid.
Amazon’s The Boys is an adaption of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson‘s series that was canceled by DC Comics after six issues and then picked up by Dynamite Entertainment. The comic book ran 72 issues.
About the series:
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 will hit Amazon sometime this year, probably summer.
