Seth Rogen’s The Boys Series Lands at Amazon

Amazon has announced that another comic book adaptation from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg has found a home as The Boys has received a series order from the streaming service. The first season of The Boys, based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, will run for eight episodes and premiere in 2019.

The series ran from 2006 to 2012 and is described as follows: “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 blue collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.”

The series will be co-produced by Sony Pictures Television Studios and created and written by showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural), and directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen. The series will be executive produced by Kripke, Goldberg, Rogen, Original Film’s Neal H. Moritz (Prison Break), Ori Marmur (Preacher) and Pavun Shetty (New Girl), as well as Point Grey Pictures’ James Weaver (Preacher). Ennis and Robertson are also slated to co-executive produce.

The Boys featured direct parodies of countless superheroes, including its own twisted versions of The Justice League, The Avengers, Teen Titans, The Fantastic Four, X-Men, and The New Mutants; in addition to characters directly riffing on the likes of Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Batman, Iron Man, Thor, and countless others.

“In a landscape saturated with superhero shows, The Boys is the next evolution in this popular genre,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios. “With Eric, Evan, Seth and Original Film all behind this series, we are excited to adapt this popular comic, from the visionary minds of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, for television.”

“We are very happy to have the unique opportunity to produce a second series based on the subversive and innovative world of Garth Ennis,” says Chris Parnell, Co-President of Sony Pictures Television Studios. “And we are thankful to Sharon and her team at Amazon for their vision, partnership, and support.”

The series marks the second adaptation of a Garth Ennis comic series by Rogen and Goldberg, who serve as executive producers on AMC’s Preacher.

Erin Moriarty Cast in The Boys as Superhero Starlight

Deadline brings word of the first cast member for Amazon’s upcoming adaptation of the comic book series The Boys with the casting of Erin Moriarty as Annie January, aka the superhero Starlight.

In the series, Starlight is a hopeful and optimistic young hero that gets called up to the “big leagues” and joins The Seven (an R-rated parody of DC Comics’ Justice League team) whom she idolizes, until she finds out that they’re all deranged and have only hired her to humiliate her for their own amusement. Her powers include flight, super hearing, and the ability to unleash a blinding light.

Moriarty is no stranger to comic book adaptations having previously appeared in Marvel’s Jessica Jones. Her other credits include Kings of Summer, True Detective, and Red Widow.

Karl Urban to Star in Amazon Superhero Drama Series 'The Boys'

Karl Urban is returning to the small screen.

The Star Trek and Lord of the Rings actor has landed the starring role in Amazon Studios' straight-to-series superhero drama The Boys.

The Boys takes places in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, and centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as "the boys" who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.

Urban will play Billy Butcher, who is described as mysterious and brutal with a personal but secret agenda. He approaches Hughie (Jack Quaid), claiming to be a shadowy government operative. Butcher capitalizes on Hughie's rage over his girlfriend Robin’s (uncast) accidental death at the hands of Superhero A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) and enlists Hughie as part of his plan to bring down the superhero system.
