Amazon Announces Cast for Graphic Novel Adaptation of THE BOYS

Sony Pictures, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have optioned the rights to a television project of The Boys, a comic series from comics legend Garth Ennis. Variety reported last fall that the television project has received a script order from Amazon with a possibility for a straight-to-series pickup from the streaming giant. 

Now, Amazon has announced the main cast for the highly-anticipated adaptation, including the following: 

  • Antony Starr (American Gothic) as Homelander, the series’ primary protagonist and patriotic leader of the Seven.
  • Dominique McElligott (The Last Tycoon) as is Queen Maeve, also known as Empress of the Otherworld; a longtime member of the time who has superpower strength, flight, and durability. 
  • Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) as The Deep, a team regular who is poised as this comic’s version of the “King of the Seas."
  • Jessie T. Usher (Survivor’s Remorse) as A-Train, who has a super speed ability.
  • Nathan Mitchell (iZombie) as Black Noir, the primary antagonist of the narrative, and said to be the strongest in the bunch.
  • Erin Moriarty (Jessica Jones) as Starlighta  young lady who can fly, project blinding light and super-hearing.

The Boys was written by Garth Ennis and designed and illustrated by Darick Robertson, making its debut in 2006 through Wildstorm before moving to Dynamite Entertainment. The series takes place between 2006-2008 in an alternate universe where superheroes exist. In this reality, superheroes are looked at like celebrities, and are corrupted by the fame and status associated with being in the spotlight, leading to reckless behavior and often compromising the safety of the world. This led to the creation of a superpowered CIA squad that make up The Boys. Based on another highly successful series from Garth Ennis, Preacher, the series quickly rose to fame for its juxtaposition of power, fame, and responsibility within this alternate universe as well as the extreme violence that became a hallmark of the series. 

There is currently no official release date for The Boys, but it is expected to release in early 2019. For a list of The Boys product from Dynamite Entertainment see below, or check out our Edelweiss+ catalog HERE.
