Promo image for The Boys released from Amazon Prime

We have been very excited about the fact that Amazon Prime is tackling The Boys but also we have been concerned just how it might turn out. Well, the first promo image has put us in a good mood with its tribute to the original comic book cover.

The Boys is being adapted from the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson and will feature Karl Urban as Billy Butcher, Jack Quaid as “Wee” Hughie Campbell, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie and Karen Fukuhara as The Female.

Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of Scripted Series at Amazon commented “In a landscape saturated with superhero shows, The Boys is the next evolution in this popular genre, 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.”
