The Boys Gets A Trailer Simon Pegg

Simon Pegg made an appearance during New York Comic-Con today to announce that he will be joining the Amazon series “The Boys” based on the acclaimed comic, and in fact will be playing a character that was modelled after him.

The story is set in a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, and tracks a well-trained hit squad who take down corrupt superheroes with no more than their blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty.

The first trailer for the series was released today as well focusing mostly on Vought Industries, the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes. Karl Urban, Elizabeth Shue, Jennifer Esposito, Karen Fukuhara, Laz Alonso, Jack Quaid, Tomer Kapon, Chace Crawford, Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr and Jessie T. Usher star.
