During the day today G, author and co-creator of the comic book saga The Boys, unveiled on Reddit the uncensored trailer dedicated to the transposition of the work, a series Amazon Prime full of charm and charisma. The subversive superhero series will debut exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries on July 26, 2019 and will premiere at Tribeca Film Festival on April 29.
The Boys offers a fun and irreverent version of what could happen if superheroes, famous as celebrities, influential as politicians and revered as gods, abuse their powers instead of using them for good. The story tells of the "powerless" against the very powerful, The Boys who embark on a heroic adventure to reveal the truth about The Seven and Vought - the multi-billion dollar company behind these superheroes and who manages to cover all their dirty secrets. The Boys are Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games), Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso, Detroit), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, Hostages), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad) . Simon Pegg (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) will play Hughie's father as a guest star.
Superheroes The Seven are led by Homelander (Antony Starr, Banshee) and include Starlight (Erin Moriarty, Captain Fantastic), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott, House of Cards), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher, Independence Day: Resurgence) , The Deep (Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell, Supernatural). Academy Award-nominated actress Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas) plays Madelyn Stillwell, Vought's Senior Vice President of Hero Management.
