The Umbrella Academy, Jessica Jones and, of course, The Avengers – there are so many superhero shows to keep up with these days, but this new Amazon show is looking to shake up the formula.

The new trailer for The Boys has been revealed and it looks like the antidote to the glut of superhero movies and shows that we need.

Superheroes (Supes) known as The Seven have been committing atrocities but these are all hidden from the public as they are adored. Billy Butcher, a CIA agent (Karl Urban with a Mary Poppins cockney accent), decides enough is enough and employs a ragtag group or mercenaries to dispose of the evil Supes.

Superheroes that aren’t all goody two-shoes? Mercs taking them down? Count us in. That’s the kind of thing we would expect from the mind of comic-book supremo Garth Ennis.

From the trailer, it’s definitely a lot more violent than most superhero shows. Think more Deadpool than Captain America.

Expect all eight episodes to come out on July 26, and you can check out the trailer right here.

As for Amazon shows to watch right now, Too Old to Die Young is out now, and if you like Drive, then you’ll definitely like this.

If you’re a fan of wrestling, or more specifically, the Glamorous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW), you’ll be glad to know season three of the hit Netflix show is coming out soon.

We can’t get enough of the superhero shows.
