After bringing Preacher to life on screen on AMC, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen teamed up with former Supernatural showrunner Eric Kripke to adapt another Garth Ennis comic book series, The Boys (co-created by Darick Robertson), and you can now watch the first teaser trailer for the Amazon Prime Video series.

Unveiled on Twitter by Seth Rogen, the first teaser trailer for The Boys can be viewed below ahead of its release later this year.

Featuring a pilot episode directed by Dan Trachtenberg, The Boys stars Karl Urban, Dominique McElligott, Karen Fukuhara, Laz Alonso, Anthony Starr, Jesse T. Usher, Tomer Kapon, Chance Crawford, Simon Pegg and Jack Quaid.

"In a world where superheroes embrace the darker side of their massive celebrity and fame, THE BOYS centers on a group of vigilantes known informally as “The Boys,” who set out to take down corrupt superheroes with no more than their blue-collar grit and a willingness to fight dirty. THE BOYS is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and as revered as Gods – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. It’s the powerless against the super powerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to expose the truth about “The Seven,” and Vought – the multi-billion dollar conglomerate that manages these superheroes. THE BOYS is scheduled for a 2019 release."
