The Boys 

Amazon Prime 

The Boys shows the unfiltered truth of what it really looks like when superheroes and civilians live side by side, and it’s not always pretty. 

The unique comic book series mixes comedy with plenty of violence, starring Karl Urban as Billy the Butcher, Jack Quaid as Hughie, Tomer Kapon as Frenchie, Laz Alonso as Mother’s Milk, and Karen Fukuhara as The Female, as the vigilantes.

They find themselves at war with those with superpowers who abuse their abilities, especially the elite superhero team known as the Seven.

Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, WandaVision will follow on from Avengers: Endgame with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their titular roles, living in the suburbs having just gotten married.

The time-bending trailer sees Wanda and Vision reunited in a black and white 50s-esque domestic dinner party, unable to remember how they met, before reality warps into more seemingly the modern day.

The series has been created by Jac Shaeffer, the mind behind the upcoming Black Widow film.
