A new trailer for The Boys Season 2 has been released. Due on September 4, the trailer demonstrates the show’s brutal and bloody antics that made the first season a huge hit.
Amazon Prime’s TV adaptation, based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book of the same name, is what we could expect if the Avengers decided to abuse their powers and turn bad.
By the end of the first season, fans were left with a number of unanswered questions. From the revelation that Billy Butcher’s wife is in the hands of the show’s central villain, Homelander, (son in tow), to the rise of super-terrorists, and speedster A-Train suffering a heart attack. A showdown between Homelander and Butcher in the finale promises to take center stage in the upcoming second season. Without revealing spoilers, Billy’s motives to take down Homelander and the Seven are highly personal.
The trailer’s description reads: “On the run from the law, they struggle to fight back against the Superheroes. As Vought, the company that manages the heroes cashes in on the panic over the threat of Supervillains, and a new hero, Stormfront, shakes up the company and challenges an already unstable Homelander.”
The introduction of new Superhero Stormfront threatens to challenge Homelander’s position of leadership, and he’s evidently not happy about it. Despite honoring his public image with innocent, charming smiles for the cameras, Homelander, (played by the chillingly brilliant Antony Starr), appears set to rampage. Stormfront is seen elevating into the air with lightning shooting from her hands, while Homelander pushes his son from the roof of a house.
Elsewhere, there are politicially-charged speeches, explosions, an endless smattering of bloody splattering, (whether it be at the hands of Homelander, Stormfront, or a speedboat careening into the side of a whale), as Hughie screams, and a helicopter crashing into the sea,
All eight episodes of The Boys Season 1 are available to watch now on Amazon Prime, starring Karl Urban as Billy Butcher and Jack Quaid as Hughie Campbell.
