Yesterday, as if gifting me direct content for this blog on a lazy Thursday, both The Umbrella Academy and The Boys came out with trailers for their upcoming second seasons. I enjoy both shows! And both are based on comic books! So it all fits! I’m a lucky guy.
The Umbrella Academy comes back first on July 31 on Netflix.
The Boys returns to Amazon Prime on Sept. 4.
What’s not to love? They both had great first seasons and can only get better from here!
We live in a world where Garth Ennis’ The Boys has a live action TV show. And it arrives on the Amazon Prime TV service today! I have such newfound respect for Seth Rogen, who I already loved, who uses his fame and wealth to turn awesome comics into hopefully awesome TV shows!
The Boys was a really good comic, even great at times. I’m excited to see it translated to television. I enjoy Preacher and my hopes are high for The Boys. It’s just a shame it took this long to get made, and Simon Pegg couldn’t play Wee Hughie.
We’re not only living in the golden age of superhero movies, we’re also living in the golden age of comic book TV shows. I really enjoyed The Boys, and I’m a big fan of writer Garth Ennis. So I’m very excited for the upcoming Amazon TV show adaptation!
Looks like they’re really going for it! I kind of like the idea that Seth Rogan is using all of his wealth and power to make fun TV shows about his favorite comics!
The Boys arrives on July 26.
The Boys by Garth Ennis is a pretty wild and entertaining comic, filled with his usual raunchiness. And following the popularity of Preacher, Seth Rogen is using his fame and fortune to make adaptations of his favorite comics. I have so much respect for that man.
Rogen shared this teaser trailer today.
Not much to see specifically, but the fact that it’s happening is going to be awesome! I look forward to watching. You should also check out the comic. The Boys is about a squad of angry, violent, but generally altruistic punks who work in secret to keep the bigger, more popular and far more depraved superheros in line.
There have been a ton more trailers coming out of Comic-Con, and I’m too lazy to make individual posts for each of them — don’t judge me, it’s the weekend. And speaking of a lazy Sunday, how about we just run them down, shall we?
I love The Boys comic from Garth Ennis. It was pretty great from start to finish. As always, I’m a little worried about a TV show adaptation, but this trailer looks fine so far. Quality comic book show to make.
I read Good Omens a couple years ago, when I was reading Neil Gaiman novels. It’s good! And the trailer looks good too! So here’s hoping it’s another success.
Ugh. The trailers for this movie keep focusing on the wrong things. I want to see more of these giant, mobile villages and cities. That’s such a unique idea, and the trailers make them look amazing!
But no, the trailer focuses on all the usual Young Adult adaptation ideas. We’ve got a magical MacGuffin amulet, a Terminator-like monster, mom secrets, and more. Then the protagonist is described as “very, very rare”. Seriously? The badass female antagonist who is both “beautiful” and yet has “jagged edges”? Isn’t that every single badass female YA protagonist?
I’m still gonna see it.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
This looks amazing! As I’ve mentioned before, I rather enjoy all these serious reboots of classic 1980s cartoons. There are maybe too many of them, but I’m not going to complain about nostalgia-based entertainment. I’m as much a sucker for that as anybody. And I love how this looks!
