The Boys Presents Diabolical Trailer Unleashes Utter Madness in The Boys Universe
Prime Video released the first full trailer for The Boys Presents Diabolical, the eight-episode animated anthology spinoff series set in the same universe as the hit series, The Boys. The trailer takes viewers right into the insanity of the universe with scenes of the upcoming anthology stories that are just as twisted as we have become accustomed to.
The series is brought to life by a slate of stars lending their creativity for these stories as well as an ensemble cast bringing the characters to life with their voice work. Starring in the series will be Michael Cera, Don Cheadle, Kieran Culkin, Giancarlo Esposito, and many more. The series will be featured in shorter “fun-size” episodes that will run between 12-14 minutes long and each feature its own animation style. Check out the details on the upcoming episodes below:
- Laser Baby’s Day Out: Written by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, was directed by Crystal Chesney-Thompson and Derek Thompson. The first clip released to tease the episode displayed a colorful cartoon reminiscent of classic American animated shorts, particularly Looney Tunes, though various other styles will be present throughout the series.
