"THE BOYS" TAKE THE STAGE AT NEW YORK COMIC CON WITH A SURPRISE CAMEO AND A FIRST LOOK AT THE SUBVERSIVE SUPERHERO SERIES FROM AMAZON STUDIOS

NEW YORK, OCTOBER 5, 2018 - Amazon Studios' highly-anticipated eight-episode series The Boys took the stage at New York Comic Con with a panel discussion with the cast and creators - and a first look at the subversive superhero series. In addition, fans were treated to a surprise cameo from Simon Pegg, whose likeness was the inspiration for "Hughie" in the original comic book series. It was revealed, with a quintessential awkward family photo, that Pegg will be appearing in the series as Hughie's (Jack Quaid) dad. Pegg's role will be a guest starring one.

During the panel, a corporate video from Vought's VP of Hero Management, Madelyn Stillwell (Elisabeth Shue), revealed just how much of a business it is to be super.

The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes - who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods - abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It's the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about "The Seven," and Vought - the multibillion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes.

The Supes of "The Seven" are A-TRAIN (Jessie T. Usher, Independence Day: Resurgence), HOMELANDER (Antony Starr, Banshee), STARLIGHT (Erin Moriarty, Captain Fantastic), QUEEN MAEVE (Dominique McElligott, House of Cards), THE DEEP (Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl) and BLACK NOIR (Nathan Mitchell, Supernatural).

Along with Quaid, The Boys are rounded out by BUTCHER (Karl Urban, Star Trek), MOTHER'S MILK (Laz Alonso, Detroit), FRENCHIE (Tomer Kapon, Hostages) and THE FEMALE (Karen Fukuhara, Suicide Squad).

The Amazon Studios hour-long superhero drama is developed and written by showrunner Eric Kripke (Supernatural). The eight-episode Prime Original series is co-produced by Sony Pictures Television and executive produced by Kripke, Point Grey Pictures' Evan Goldberg (Preacher), Seth Rogen (Preacher) and James Weaver (Preacher), Original Film's Neal H. Moritz (Prison Break), Ori Marmur (Preacher) and Pavun Shetty (New Girl), as well as Jason Netter and Ken Levin. Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson, who created the comic book on which the series is based, will also co-executive produce.

The Boys is scheduled for a 2019 global release, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories.

NYCC Panel Teases















Simon Pegg to Guest



Simon Pegg will play Hughie's father Dougie (a Scottish name in honor of Hughie's Scottish background in the comics). "He's just one in a line of men who haven't really fronted up to life and has spent most of his time eating pizza rolls and watching Remington Steele…," Pegg explains. "Hughie really is the one that breaks that cycle of inactivity and torpor, so in a way, Hugh's father is a specter of his own kind of inaction and he has to take a stand."




Giancarlo Esposito to Guest

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
