The Boys Season 2: It is an Amazon Prime Original superhero-drama series created by Eric Kripke based on the comic book series by the same name. ‘The Boys’ is a cheeky take on what happens when superheroes abuse their supernatural powers rather than use them for good.
The show made decent noise in season one and fans have been expecting nothing less in season two.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT The Boys Season 2?
The Boys were created by Eric Kripke inspired by the comic-book series of the same name. In a world of superheroes with actual superpowers, but rather than being symbols of honor and integrity like Justice League and the Avengers, they allowed status and fame to get in their head, and became violent and reckless. They are called ‘The Seven’. They are the rival group of the Boys, who will do anything to take them down. On a day where Netflix’s Umbrella Academy and Halloween Kills also dropped big trailers, The Boys managed to hold the crown.
WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM THE The Boys Season 2 TRAILER? [SPOILER ALERT]
There were plenty of takeaways from watching the trailer of the 2nd season of The Boys.
In season one finale, before assaulting Butcher, Homelander showed him that not only his wife Becca is alive, she has also been raising Homelander’s son. And yet during this trailer, Butcher appears to be safe and sound so we can presume that he’s escaped Homelander.
In the first season, Homelander revealed that he created superhuman terrorists. On the course of the second season, we expect they will play a much bigger role as seen in the trailer.
The prime motive of the Boys from the start has been to bring Vought to the ground (The Seven are owned and managed by Vought International). While the boys don’t have superpowers and cannot stand an opportunity against superhero-terrorists in hand-to-hand combat, they play dirty and have shown that grit and determination are basically superpowers in themselves. It’ll be interesting to determine if they will evade the law while simultaneously pursuing to destroy Vought.
In the final scene of the trailer, we see Homelander order Starlight to kill Hughie. Even though she does attack, it wasn’t made clear who she was targeting. I doubt she is going to kill Hughie as she is the lone superhuman we’ve got who may be a human and also Hughie is somebody she loves. So does she attack Homelander instead? Can she even fight him on her own? For now, we only have questions.
