– Director Dan Trachtenberg shared the news that filming has begun on The Boys. The new Amazon series is based on the comic book by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The series is set in a world where superheroes exist. However, most of the superheroes in the series’ universe are corrupted by their celebrity status and often engage in reckless behaviour, compromising the safety of the world. For this reason, a superpowered CIA squad, known informally as “The Boys”, is charged with monitoring the superhero community; the name is Butcher’s contribution, a reference from his neighbourhood that those in power would send “the boys” to handle anyone causing trouble.
