Amazon releases full-length trailer for superhero drama ‘The Boys’

In the trailer, the Boys have to take down "the Seven", a group of superheroes who abuse their celebrity statuses and use their powers to kill others.

The source material, which ran for 72 issues between 2006 and 2012, was co-created by Darick Robertson, who helped co-create the Happy graphic novel series that was recently adapted by SYFY, and Garth Ennis, who's known for creating the Preacher comic series with a TV adaptation now running on AMC. The latest NSFW trailer (seriously, emphasis on NSFW!) for Amazon's TV adaptation of The Boys will give you an inkling of just how much havoc a god-like being would wreak on normal humans. It's the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about the supergroup known as "The Seven".

Take a look at the new The Boys trailer for yourself below.

In terms of the cast, The Boys are Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, Star Trek), Hughie (Jack Quaid, The Hunger Games), Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso, Detroit), Frenchie (Tomer Capon, Hostages), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad).

A massive huntsman spider was pictured chowing down on a possum in a shocking image captured in Tasmania, Australia. Charles Darwin University conservation biology professor John Woinarski said it was likely to be an eastern pygmy.

Supes have been committing atrocities, which keep getting swept under the rug because they are revered by the adoring public.

Superheroes are known to fight evil villains in many storylines, however, The Boys, Amazon's new series, features the opposite scenario, where Central Intelligence Agency agents are tasked to take down these powerful figures who have corrupted the planet.

On the superhero team front, the Seven comprise the likes of Homelander (Antony Starr), Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford) and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).

We'll find out on July 26 if The Boys is what we want (what we really, really want) when it premieres on Amazon.
