Grant Morrision’s The boys is set in a world where superheroes have taken a darker turn; where great power comes with great irresponsibility.
The ‘heroes’ of The Boys are a group of vigilantes – normal – who are prepared to tackle them when they go horribly wrong.
The Boys will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in 2019.
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. THE BOYS is scheduled for a 2019 release.
