Here’s a web series that’s defiantly unique in the superhero zone. The Boy is about a vigilante group that is out there to combat superheroes who have become corrupted. The web series stars Karl Urban, Elisabeth Shue, Erin Moriarty, Anthony Starr, Dominique McEligott and others. The trailer promises an ultra-violent web series with a smattering of cuss words and what-not – just what the doctor ordered for the flailing superhero genre. The series is spun-off from a comic book series that was printed from 2006 to 2012. The series premieres on Amazon Prime on July 29, 2019.
Earlier, a film was supposed to be made from the source material, but that never happened. The comic book series was nominated in 2008, 2009 and 2010 for the Eisner Award, the Domain Comic Distributor Gem Awards and the Scream Awards
