It is refreshing to find Superheroes in a new light, after having been bombarded by films from Marvel and DC as well as the show that appears to have taken over TV mostly. The Boys is an Amazon Prime series about superheroes which are not all that super. They have personal struggles and aren’t the paragons of law, justice, and order we have come to expect. They have their difficulties with their humanity, and also are individual, gritty, raw, or lack thereof.
This Boys’ first season was a sleeper hit for Amazon but probably went over that due to the TV-viewing public’s fatigue with superheroes generally. The source material, a graphic novel written by Garth Ennis, investigates the idea of what superheroes means from a perspective. With the amount of bad these”do-gooders” have done over the last season, it makes you wonder if the heroes are here to save the world from sin, or store it they are sometimes the evil in the world.
The Boys – A Placing with Grit
Moviegoers will be familiar with the difference between their works and the comic franchises. Amazon’s The Boys doesn’t have to kowtow to either studio, and the setting isn’t anything but that which we would expect from a superhero story. The story opens with us being introduced into a world where superheroes move about, and are real, saving others. We learn about supers acquired their abilities and the way they stand for justice and truth for the guy. That is till one of them kills an innocent woman while in the grasp of some sort of drug.
From there, things spiral quickly as we follow one who is a super two distinct character and another who is trying to learn why his girlfriend had to die. Their paths cross and intertwine over the backdrop of numerous conspiracies. Little by little, the truth comes out for is their own and themselves the only thing these supers endure. Other people who get in the way are quickly removed with no thought.
Who is the Cast of The Boys Season 2
The faces are likely to make a return. Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid) will need to figure out where they are once more since the field of battle changes, and secrets become uncovered. Homelander (Anthony Starr) along with his one-time-lover Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) might return to carry on the world they have known inside Vought Industries. Starfire (Erin Moriarty) will also have to decide where her loyalty lies after realizing the truth behind Vought. Hughie’s savior and himself Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) may also figure in this year’s antics. Other figures like Starfire’s handler Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie) will probably see more screen time in year two, at least, if the teaser trailer will be considered.
What Should We Expect in Season 2?
The manufacturing staff is tight-lipped on allowing any escape, but we could figure out a little what we’re likely to see from the trailer in season 2. Homelander features prominently, as does a lot of explosions and blood spatters, but besides the obvious, we can establish a few things. All isn’t well at Vought. In the conclusion of last season, we saw Madelyn Stillwell (Elizabeth Shue) get murdered by Homelander. That is very likely to leave her boss Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito), who’d only just encouraged her, to finally find a replacement.
Also, we see Ashley Barrett and a couple of shots of Billy Butcher carrying the fight to the supers. The clip is brief, but there is a lot of info inside there. In 1 clip that lasts a couple of seconds, we visit Homelander slamming and choking Starfire to a wall. Later on, we see a super who we presume to be Dark Noir getting ready for a battle. If anything hints in above everything else is a battle is coming.
When Can We Expect The Boys Season two?
Amazon has stated that the next season of its hit series will release around the center of 2020. There may be additions to the cast which we have not noted as yet, but for the time being, here is the group we’re working with. If you’re not hyped about year two of this gem, then you probably need to rewatch one.
