Based on the comic book series written by Garth Ennis and co-created, designed and illustrated by Darick Robertson, The Boys was originally published by Wildstorm before moving to Dynamite Entertainment.
In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, The Boys centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as “The Boys,” who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than their blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.
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. 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.
Helmed by Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg and starring Elisabeth Shue, Karl Urban, Jennifer Esposito, Jack Quaid, Colby Minifie, Jess Salgueiro, Brittany Allen, and Bruce Novakowski, The Boys is coming to Amazon Prime in the summer of 2019.
