Starring in the series is Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Chace Crawford, Laz Alonso, Tomer Capone, Karen Fukuhara, and Nathan Mitchell. The comic book series adaptation started as a feature-length film development in 2008, with Adam McKay set to direct. Due to creative differences, the project was put on hold between the crew and the studios that picked it up, resulting in development hell. The project was revived in 2016 when Cinemax announced that it would be reworked as a television series. Kripke was hired as the showrunner, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg serving as executive producers.

LET’S GET DEEP INTO THE PLOT OF THE BOYS

PLOT OF THE BOYS

The Boys takes place in a world where superpowered individuals are regarded as heroes by the general public and are owned by a powerful corporation, Vought International, which ensures that they are aggressively marketed and monetized. Most are arrogant and corrupt outside of their heroic personas. The titular Boys, vigilantes, looking to keep the corrupted heroes under control, and the Seven, Vought International’s premier superhero team, are the series’ main characters. Billy Butcher, who despises all superpowered people, leads the Boys, while Homelander, the egotistical and unstable leader of the Seven, leads the Seven. The series follows the new members of each team as the conflict between the two groups escalates: Hugh “Hughie” Campbell of the Boys, who joins the vigilantes after his girlfriend is killed in a high-speed collision by the Seven’s A-Train, and Annie January/Starlight of the Seven, a young and hopeful heroine forced to confront the truth about the heroes she admires.
