Amazon Releases New ‘The Boys’ Banner – NYCC

‘Amazon has released two new banners for its forthcoming Prime series, The Boys.

Following the debut of the show’s first teaser trailer, Amazon has unveiled two brand new banners for the series teasing both The Boys and The Seven.

The first banner, which you can see below, focuses on The Boys and is an expanded look at the show’s first poster. The image recreates the iconic cover of the book’s first issue and features Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as Wee Hughie, Karen Fukuhara as The Female, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, and Tomer Kapon as The Frenchman.

The below banner gives us our best look yet at The Seven, a group of heroes associated with Vought International. From left to right is actress Erin Moriarty (Jessica Jones) as Starlight, Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) as The Deep, Dominique McElligott (House of Cards) as Queen Maeve, Nathan Mitchell (Supernatural) as Black Noir, Jessie T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence) as A-Train, and Antony Starr (Banshee) as Homelander.

The series hails from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and was originally optioned by Cinemax, prior to landing at Amazon. The duo also stepped behind the camera to helm the pilot. The series, which is based on the Dynamite Entertainment comic that ran from 2008 to 2012, takes a very different approach to superheroes than most other comic book shows. The comic depicted a world in which superheroes had become amoral celebrities that often engaged in destructive and selfish behavior with The Boys, a CIA squad, being brought in to keep them in check — or kill them if ultimately needed.

Based on the comic series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys is developed for television by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. The adaptation stars Karl Urban, Elisabeth Shue, Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Nathan Mitchell, Laz Alonso, Jack Quaid, and Karen Fukuhara. It is expected to premiere on Amazon sometime in early 2019.
