The Boys season 2 trailers
Amazon has dropped the first full trailer of The Boys season 2, and its as action-packed and gory as you'd expect. The main takeaway is that the Spice Girls are about to become notorious to the rest of the world.
Our first look of season 2 of the The Boys introduced a new addition to The Seven - Stormfront. Take a look below:
What is the plot for the next season?
Spoiler warning for season 1 of The Boys. If you’re not all caught up on the plot, don't scroll any further.
So, Homelander can’t really get any worse can he? After killing Stillwell (and most likely leaving her poor child to be blown up), he’s taken Billy Butcher to the house of his long-time missing wife, Becca. There, he revealed that not only is she alive, but she’s also a mother to a young boy… and the father is none other than Homelander himself. Yep, we got a supe child on the loose.
This is actually a wild deviation from the graphic novel, so we can’t predict where the plot is going to go. It still remains to be seen whether or not Becca was in fact forced by Homelander to sleep with him as Billy believes, or if she was just having an affair, as Homelander claims. Either way - Billy is in for some shocking revelations when it comes to his wife who he'd originally believed to be dead.
The first full trailer also revealed that The Seven are instigating a witch hunt on the Spice Girls, which is obviously going to complicate the battle between the two sides much more.
Season 2 will also see some new faces join the main cast. Giancarlo Esposito made a brief appearance as Stan Edgar in the finale of last season, and it's now been revealed that the Breaking Bad star will be acting essentially as the new Stillwell - so likely just as (if not more) despicable. We can’t wait.
With Translucent blown to smithereens, and The Deep permanently demoted and away in Ohio, some new slots have opened up in The Seven. We know for a fact that one will likely be filled by a new character: Stormfront, played by Aya Cash.
In the comics, Stormfront is a prototype superhero from the 1930’s with powers similar to Shazam… oh yeah, and a Nazi. The Seven is about to get a whole lot more nasty than before. However, the latest clip showed her as an Instagram influencer, so perhaps the show is taking another direction with her character?
The other replacement isn’t yet confirmed, but whispers around the net seem to think that Tek-Knight will be the next supe on the block. Based off of Batman, this ‘hero’ has a sex addiction in the comics, so all bets are off as to whether this is a plot that will be pursued.
We’ll also likely see some more from the terrorist super-villains that are currently in development. The media will no doubt be planting the seeds for a supe battle - and we’re guessing that they may try to paint The Boys as a group of villains in the future.
Finally, we also saw glimpses of doubt being placed in the minds of Queen Maeve and A-Train about whether they were fighting for the right cause. We can’t help but wonder whether or not we’re going to eventually see The Seven split up, with some (namely Starlight) turning on Homelander all together. Basically, we just want some super-powered battle scenes. Is it too much to ask?
