Amazon Drops Trailer for Gritty Superhero Drama ‘The Boys’

According to Paste, Amazon has released the trailer for their upcoming show The Boys, based on a comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Paste notes that The Boys follows “the Seven, a Justice League analog who use their valorous public image to serve themselves behind the scenes, and The Boys, a group of super-powered CIA agents tasked with reining them in.”

Showrunner Eric Kripke, creator of Supernatural, tweeted the trailer for the show, which will be produced by Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg.

The Boys features Lord of the Rings alum Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as “Wee” Hughie, Karen Fukuhara as The Female, Laz Alsono as Mother’s Milk and Tomer Capon as Frenchie. Simon Pegg will feature Hughie Sr., calling back to the original comics, in which Robertson used Pegg’s likeness to draw the character of Hughie.

No release date has been announced yet, but expected this summer. Watch the trailer below!
