The Boys Has Been Greenlit by Cinemax

A while back it was announced that Warner Bros. and HBO had made a deal similar to in making DC Comics imprints television series and the first project to be green-lit by HBO’s sister channel Cinemax has started with The Boys.

The news was first released by that Garth Ennis and Darick Robertsons next adaptation of The Boys, which originally ran under Dynamite Entertainment before going to DC Comics imprint Wildstorm, had been picked up by Cinemax, making it the first project from DC Comics’ lesser known label Wildstorm to be green-lit. The series is being adapted by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the same team behind the adapted of Preacher for AMC.

Another show-runner includes Eric Kripke (Supernatural), who is also directing the pilot based on the script by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

If proven successful, it’ll be great to see if a Before Watchmen series can be added to HBO or Cinemax’s list or maybe a new Constantine series with Matt Ryan as those franchises would work great on a network with no limitations.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
