An official trailer has been released for The Boys, Amazon’s TV series adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic of the same name. The series was created and executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who also created the TV adaptation of Preacher for AMC, and producer and showrunner Eric Kripke, who created Supernatural.
The show stars Karl Urban, Chace Crawford, Jessie T. Usher, Antony Starr, Nathan Mitchell, Dominique McElligott, Erin Moriarty, Jack Quaid, and Karen Fukuhara, with Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) directing the first episode.
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.

The Boys is set to premiere on Amazon’s Prime Video on July 26th.
NOTE: It should be warned that, like the “Spank” trailer, the official trailer below is uncensored and contains some good bonkers fun not fit for watching in most workplace environments or while tiny humans are running about.
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.
