A new short film set shortly after the first season of The Boys explores the disappearance of Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher.
Now that The Boys is airing weekly, fans are getting a lot more invested in the team’s fight against the depraved superheroes much more than when the full first season dropped on Amazon Prime last year. But there was still a lingering question over what happened to Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher shortly after he discovered his wife, Becca (Shantel VanSanten) was still alive. Thankfully, Amazon revealed a short film exploring what the morally ambiguous operative got up to in between the first and second season.
It’ll come as no surprise that Butcher: A Short Film features a dose of violence in the five minute runtime as Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher goes on the run and visits an old friend for help. The Boys is no stranger to getting bloody, with one particular moment from the second season stunning fans at the scale of violence the series gets away with. Take a look at The Boys star Karl Urban exploring Butcher a little more in the short film below.

The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought. In hiding, Hughie (Jack Quaid), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) try to adjust to a new normal, with Butcher (Karl Urban) nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, Starlight (Erin Moriarty) must navigate her place in The Seven as Homelander (Antony Starr) sets his sights on taking complete control. His power is threatened with the addition of Stormfront (Aya Cash), a social media-savvy new Supe, who has an agenda of her own. On top of that, the Supervillain threat takes center stage and makes waves as Vought seeks to capitalize on the nation’s paranoia.
The Boys stars Karl Urban Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Dominique McElligott, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Kapon, Karen Fukuhara, and Nathan Mitchell. So far, the series has added Goran Visnjic and Claudia Doumit for season two.
