Amazon Studios: “The Boys” Season 2 First Look “I’m Stormfront”

Amazon Prime subscribers who are diehard comic book fans like ourselves are over the moon at the news of “The Boys” getting a second season. Sadly, we are not subscribers here at the Metal Media Command HQ and had initially bypassed this particular comic book series somehow. That being said the service has just released a “First Look” clip and I’m sharing it for those of you who found themselves ensnared by the first season. Take a look.

The Premise:
The Boys is set in a universe where superpowered individuals are recognized as heroes by the general public and owned by powerful corporation Vought International, which markets and monetizes them. Outside of their heroic personas, most are arrogant and corrupt. The series primarily focuses on two groups: the Seven, Vought International’s premier superhero team, and the titular Boys, vigilantes looking to keep the corrupted heroes under control. The Boys are led by Billy Butcher, who despises all superpowered people, and the Seven are led by the egotistical and unstable Homelander. As a conflict ensues between the two groups, the series also follows the new members of each team: Hughie Campbell of the Boys, who joins the vigilantes after his girlfriend is killed by one of the Seven; and Annie January / Starlight of the Seven, a young and hopeful heroine forced to face the truth about the heroes she admires.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I didn’t watch the first season based on not subscribing, I did watch this clip and hoped it wouldn’t spoil anything for me. I managed to catch three of the first season episodes when they ran while waiting on friends to get ready and I loved it. Maybe I will consider subscribing now because with the pandemic in command of our plans and not being able to do much in the outside world with all the closures and cancellations there isn’t much else to do except watch television and movies. What did you think of the first look clip? Chime in down below and I will see you next time. Fans of the show can be rest assured that I will be adding more clips from the broadcast as we are aware of them. Ciao.
