Amazon has just released a full-length trailer for its upcoming series The Boys, produced by Seth Rogen and his partner in crime Evan Goldberg. The series — based on Garth Ennis’ best-selling comics — follows Karl Urban‘s CIA operative Billy Butcher on his journey to recruit a team of vengeful spirits known as “The Boys” to fight a corrupted and abusive gang of superheroes, called “The Seven.”

The two-and-a-half-minute trailer begins by showing Billy Butcher recruiting a series of members, alongside short snippets of superheroes killing innocent people and abusing their powers — a Flash-like speedster runs through a girl. The clip then introduces “The Boys”, consisting of Butcher, Frenchie, Mother’s Milk, and Female, with more violence and eye-gouging. After another sequence of high-octane scenes of brutal encounters between “The Boys” and “The Seven” against a Spice Girls background track, the trailer finally closes with a release date: July 26.

For those interested, The Boys will be available on Amazon’s Prime Video service for members this summer on July 26. And for more entertainment news, Netflix has responded to criticisms revolving around its upcoming prank show starring Gaten Matarazzo.
