Amazon Teases ‘The Boys’ with Bloody, Sexy Trailer
There’s no secret that mature superhero material is flying at us from all directions. After the success of Fox’s Deadpool and Logan films, everybody is trying to tell a different and edgier story than the others.
Amazon is one of those everybodies.
The online book store turned internet everything’s new series, The Boys, is 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. 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 formiddable Vought backing.
The series is from popular comic book creator Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson (HAPPY!). It promises all kinds of dark action and over-the-top sequences. Amazon’s backing up that claim with their newest trailer.
Check out the trailer, and let us know what you think in the comments below.
