the boys teaser trailer

Not everyone is a fan of superheroes. In fact, some people may be keen on taking superheroes down, especially when those supposed heroes are fame-hungry, corrupt authority figures under the sway of a sinister corporation. The Boys centers around a group of vigilantes who set out to do just that in the highly anticipated Amazon adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s anti-hero comic series.

Amazon has released the first The Boys teaser trailer, giving us a glimpse of the long-awaited TV series.

the boys cast simon pegg

The character of Wee Hughie in Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic The Boys was visually modeled on actor Simon Pegg. This fact lead many fans to hope and pray that the Shaun of the Dead actor would inevitably play the character should The Boys ever be adapted to the big screen. That never came to pass, and now The Boys is an Amazon TV series instead. But here’s a twist! Pegg is in the show after all, but not as Wee Hughie. Instead, he’s playing Hughie’s dad. See? It all worked out in the end.

the boys casting

Amazon’s The Boys has cast a bunch of superheroes. A bunch of filthy, no-good, vile superheroes who will have their faces kicked in by a team of antiheroes dedicated to policing the super-powered people who walk among us.

Like the Garth Ennis/Darick Robertson comic before it, this new series follows “the Boys,” a black-ops team dedicated to spying on, blackmailing, and even roughing up superheroes who stray out of line. And while we don’t know who will be the title characters quite yet, we do know who will be playing members of The Seven, this universe’s equivalent of the Justice League and the series’ primary antagonists.

the boys tv series

The Boys is a big middle finger to superheroes and all they stand far. It’s a gruesome, immature, often very good, and often cringe-worthy comic series that finds writer Garth Ennis indulging his worst habits while also finding opportunities to remind us that there’s a rockstar of a storyteller underneath all of the gore and dick jokes. It’s almost become a movie on several occasions. Last year, we heard that The Boys was heading to television instead. Now, it looks like it’s going to be a series on Cinemax, shepherded to the screen by many of the same folks who are bringing Preacher (another Ennis comic) to AMC.
