Dan Trachtenberg ("10 Cloverfield Lane") will direct Amazon's live-action, subversive, superhero comic book adaptation "The Boys", co-produced by Sony Pictures TV Studios and Original Films, starting May 22, 2018 in Toronto:
"...in a world where 'superheroes' exist, many are corrupted by their celebrity status, often engaging in fascist, reckless behavior, compromising the safety of the world.
"While the masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone's got to make sure the 'supes' don't get out of line...
"Introducing 'Billy Butcher', 'Wee Hughie', 'Mother's Milk', 'The Frenchman' and 'The Female' aka 'The Boys'.
"They are a 'CIA'-backed team , each one dedicated to the struggle against the most dangerous force on Earth - superpower!
"Some superheroes have to be watched. Some have to be controlled.
"And some of them - sometimes - need to be taken out of the picture..."
