Ahead of the release of Amazon Prime Video’s comic book adaptation of The Boys later this week, the streaming service has unveiled the final trailer.
Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys was developed by showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural), who also serves as writer, executive producer and directed the season finale.
Check out the trailer below!
The Boys, launching 26th July on Amazon Prime Video and in production on season two, 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 and covers up all of their dirty secrets.
The Boys are Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso, Detroit), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, Hostages), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad). Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) guest stars as Hughie’s father.
The Supes of The Seven are led by Homelander (Antony Starr, Banshee) who is joined by Starlight (Erin Moriarty, Captain Fantastic), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott, House of Cards), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher, Independence Day: Resurgence), The Deep (Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell, Supernatural).
Academy Award® nominee Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas) stars as Madelyn Stillwell, Vought’s Senior VP of Hero Management.
Season 1 of The Boys will be released in full on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 26th July.
