Sometimes, superheroes need to be taken down a peg.
During Friday’s New York Comic Con panel,Amazon’s upcoming series The Boys released its first teaser, which introduces viewers to Madelyn Stillwell of Vought International. Vought is the company behind a number of well-known superheroes, including The Seven. But as the end of the trailer shows, The Boys aren’t big fans of Vought.
According to theshow’s official description, “The Boyscenters 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 … 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.”
The show, which is based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, comes from creator Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. It starsKarl Urban, Chace Crawford,Simon Pegg, Erin Moriarty, and more.
The Boys, which was given an eight-episode order at Amazon, is expected in 2019.
