If you're a fan of Amazon's Prime Video and showrunner/EP Eric Kripke's The Boys, then we're pretty sure you've been enjoying the past few weeks. Not only did you learn that the highly-anticipated third season will premiere on June 3rd but you were also treated to an early teaser. Now thanks to Kripke, we know that an official trailer has been locked and should be heading out to us over the next few weeks. And then there's March 4th, when the animated anthology series The Boys: Diabolical hits the streaming service with eight tales set within and around the show's universe. So that should be more than enough, right? Well, just in case it isn't then how about these two excellent bloopers showcasing Homelander (Antony Starr) and Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie)? We thought you would approve…
So for a look at Starr having some rooftop fun (minus the bee attack) and Minifie having a bit of a "brain" issue, here's a look at the two latest bloopers released from Amazon's The Boys:
Last week, Kripke checked in (while "buzzed," in his own words) to let us know that 4 out of the 8 episodes have been mixed, a "couple hundred VFX shots" are still to be finished "but they're awesome." But the best news from his tweet? The first trailer was officially locked today and "will be out in a few weeks":
With Prime Video's spinoff animated series The Boys Presents: Diabolical set to hit Amazon on March 4, viewers learned how impressively extensive the voice cast is with more major additions announced earlier this week. On the writing side, we have Awkwafina, Garth Ennis, Eliot Glazer & Ilana Glazer, Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen, Simon Racioppa, Justin Roiland & Ben Bayouth, Andy Samberg, and Aisha Tyler. We were also treated to the official trailer as well as a look at the eight, 12-14 minute chapters & their diverse animation styles (from homages to the original The Boys comics to those inspired by anime, Korean horror & drama, and Roiland's unique aesthetic). And before you ask? Yes, that's Simon Pegg voicing an animated version of the comics original version of Hughie was based on Pegg and not the series Hughie's (Jack Quaid) dad.
Along with Pegg, the full voice cast is a jaw-dropper that includes Awkwafina, Michael Cera, Don Cheadle, Chace Crawford, Kieran Culkin, Giancarlo Esposito, Eliot Glazer, Jason Isaacs, Kumail Nanjiani, Justin Roiland, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg, Ben Schwartz, Elisabeth Shue, Christian Slater, Kevin Smith, Antony Starr, Nasim Pedrad, Kenan Thompson, Aisha Tyler, Youn Yuh Jung, Kimberly Brooks, Nicole Byer, Frances Conroy, Asjha Cooper, Chris Diamantopolous, John DiMaggio, Jermaine Fowler, Emily Gordon, Grey Griffin, Randall Duk Kim, David Marciano, Xolo Maridueña, Dominique McElligott, Caleb McLaughlin, Colby Minifie, Eugene Mirman, Retta, Kevin Michael Richardson, Somali Rose, Parker Simmons, Ursula Taherian, Fred Tatasciore, Sean Patrick Thomas, Angela Marie Volpe, Gary Antony Williams, and Jenny Yokobori.
