The new trailer for Prime Video’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book The Boys has landed – and it’s as gleefully filthy as the comic. Check it out:
The series stars Karl Urban (Thor: Ragnarok) as Billy Butcher, who leads a team of people intent on bringing down The Seven, a corrupt and above-the-law group of superheroes, beloved by the world even as they commit casual atrocities behind the scenes.
The trailer is packed full of all the violence, gore and bad language you’d expect from the producing team behind Preacher, plus some unexpected weirdness, including a Sporty Spice pep talk and Butcher using a baby as a bazooka.
The show also stars Jack Quaid (Rampage) as Hughie, whose girlfriend is accidentally exploded by a superhero, Antony Starr (Banshee) as Homelander, the leader of The Seven, Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl), Erin Moriarty (Jessica Jones), Jessie T Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence), Karen Fukuhara (Suicide Squad), Laz Alonso (L.A.’s Finest), Tomer Capon (Hostages) and Elisabeth Shue (Hollow Man).
The man behind the first five seasons of Supernatural, Eric Kripke, is on showrunner duties, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg executive producing.
The series arrives on Prime Video on 26 July. Get all the latest TV news with every issue of SciFiNow.
