During this weekend’s New York Comic Con, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (the team behind Sausage Party) dropped the trailer for their new Amazon Prime Video series The Boys.
Based on a comic book series of the same name, it takes place in a world where superheroes have become easily corruptible corporate assets that have embraced darker elements of their celebrity status. “The Boys” are a vigilante group determined to take down one of the most famous superhero squads known as “The Seven”.
“The Boys 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,” says Amazon. “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.”
Release is scheduled for 2019.
