Amazon released an official trailer for “The Boys,” which is a darker superhero tale then you might catch in the theaters. The studio is bringing select members of the cast and crew to San Diego Comic-Con this month to showcase the show, which debuts on Prime Video on July 26th. Amazon Studios’ panel at Comic-Con this year will be hosted by Aisha Tyler, and we might get another look at the new episodes.
Amazon describes the series as “an 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.” The adds, “It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven”, and their formidable Vought backing.”
Season one stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, Nathan Mitchell, and Elisabeth Shue. Fans of the genre can watch the official trailer below.
