Suicide Squad actress Karen Fukuhara is joining the cast of another dark take on the superhero genre: Amazon’s adaptation of the Wildstorm and Dynamite Entertainment comic series The Boys.
Deadline has broken the news that Fukuhara will be involved in Amazon’s eight-episode adaptation of Garth Ennis’ comic series. The Boys is set in a world in which superheroes have become corrupt and depraved, with the title team serving as a CIA-backed group of superheroes that keep the excesses of other superheroes in check — even if it means killing them (which it often does).
Fukuhara joins Erin Moriarty, Antony Starr, Dominique McElligott, Chace Crawford, and Jessie T. Usher in the series. She’ll be playing the character named “The Female (Of The Species)”, who has exceptional talent when it comes to dismembering and mutilating her enemies.
The Boys hails from Supernatural executive producer Eric Kripke and is based on the comic series from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. Amazon has given a straight-to-series order for a total of eight episodes. Preacher producers Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen are both set to direct. There is no word on when The Boys will premiere.
5 DC Films Warner Bros. Needs To Focus On After ‘Justice League’
Now that Justice League is past us, Warner Bros. is shaking things up. There is now a new head at the studio and with that comes changes. It seems that the studio is easing off the gas when it comes to announcing movies. As of right now there is only Aquaman, Shazam, Wonder Woman 2 and Flashpoint with any sort of true momentum behind them. The Batman, which has a director attached, and a sequel to Man of Steel are also expected, but there’s nothing concrete like release dates for those yet.
The hard part now is figuring out what films Warner Bros. should focus on. There have been numerous films unofficially announced by the studio, with three of them featuring Harley Quinn as a main character. This shows a lack of focus. Now going forward, there needs to be a clear focus as to what movies are coming out.
