Amazon Prime’s The Boys Gets Very NSFW Trailer

Coming to Amazon Prime Video on July 26 is the latest comic book adaptation, The Boys. Amazon recently revealed the first trailer for the upcoming show, and it is most certainly not safe for work. Seriously, watch this on your own time.

Based on the Dynamite comic of the same name, the series follows a world where superheroes have become celebrities, and a group titled The Boys are tasked with covering up said heroes’ screw-ups when they abuse their powers. Check out the first trailer for the series below.

The Boys are made up of Hughie (Jack Quaid), Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara). Additionally, Simon Pegg guest stars as Hughie’s father. There are also the featured superheroes on this series, The Supes of the Seven, which consists of Homelander (Antony Starr), Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford), and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).

The original comic series, which also was for a more adult audience, debuted in 2006 under the Wildstorm banner–before moving to Dynamite six months later. It was created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson, and the series was known for its over-the-top moments.

GameSpot spoke with Simon Pegg back at New York Comic-Con about his role and the adaptation as a whole. “They showed me the stuff that they’d already shot that was surprising and shocking, but for all the right reasons,” he said. “I think Garth almost and Darick together, obviously because Darick Robertson was drawing it, together they were trying to almost dare somebody to adapt it. It was almost the unadaptable comic book, even more so than Preacher I think.”

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
