I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner, but good news for everyone involved. Amazon is officially in business with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in bringing the hit comic book series ‘The Boys‘ to the TV Series realm. The comic book started in 2006 and was written by Garth Ennis (‘Preacher‘) and focused on a group of people known as ‘The Boys‘ who set out to take out corrupt superheroes who destroy the lives of many while trying to do their jobs.

Goldberg and Rogen will write and direct the show, just like they did with AMC’s ‘Preacher’ show, which was based on the comic book series too. Eric Kripke (‘Supernatual‘) will be involved in the show too, along with Neal H. Moritz, according to Deadline. The show has an 8 episode order and will start production fairly soon. The comic books had a 72 issue run and was published by Wildstorm for the first 6 issues, but changed over to Dynamite Entertainment for the rest of its run.

 

 

 

Official Synopsis:


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.

I’m so glad we are finally getting this show, because we really haven’t had anything like this in the superhero genre yet. Over the past ten years, we’ve been over-saturated with super-hero movies and television shows of basically the same thing over and over. ‘Captain America: Civil War‘ lightly touched upon the subject matter that is covered in ‘The Boys‘ in that superheroes should answer for the destruction and loss of life they cause when trying to save the world. In ‘The Boys‘, it goes much deeper than that.

I can’t wait to see the cast for this show. There is a character that has Simon Pegg written all over it, and since Goldberg and Rogen have worked with him before, let’s hope they re-team again.

Written By: Bryan Kluger

Movie Quotes

Gary Grobowski:
What kind of bullshit move was that?
Brooke Meyers:
I'm sorry, what? What happened?
Gary Grobowski:
Oh don't be coy with me. You sent that animal over here to attack me when I was hung over and weak.
Brooke Meyers:
Oh no. Look, all I know is The Tone Rangers they needed some place to rehearse so I very clearly told Richard stay in my room, which you explained to me was my space to do with what I want.
Gary Grobowski:
Is that how you want to play it? Cause I'll play it like that. I'll play it like Lionel Richie, all night long, lady. Oh yeah. I'll call some guys from my neck of the woods. And we're not talking about, Brooke, about a couple of queens who know a few grapples. We're talking about Polacks that don't have a goddamn future. That's right. We can make shit real uncomfortable around here, and that's what we're going to do.
Brooke Meyers:
Please, come on. You know what, you're just embarrassed because Richard kicked your ass.
Gary Grobowski:
Richard did not kick my ass. What Richard did was attack me when I was half asleep.
Brooke Meyers:
Really, is that how you see it?
Gary Grobowski:
There's a real big gap between getting your ass kicked and having a dancing, singing sprite fool you with trickery and then strike your throat before you even know you're in a fight. But I wouldn't expect someone like you to understand that, because all you do is make moves from up in your ivory tower.
