Erin Moriarty Joins Amazon’s Adaptation Of The Boys

by Erik Amaya


Deadline reports that Erin Moriarty will join Amazon’s upcoming adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darrick Robertson’s The Boys.
Originally published by DC Comics’ Wildstorm imprint in 2006, The Boys takes place in a world where superheroes are as corruptible and fallible as any other celebrity. A CIA squad known as “The Boys” is tasked with monitoring the superpowered community and taking action when necessary. The title left Wildstorm after six issues as DC allegedly became uncomfortable with the book’s anti-superhero tone. It found a home at Dynamite Entertainment. There, Ennis, Robertson and other contributors continued to weave their superheros-run-amuck tale until 2012.
Moriaty will play Starlight, a young superhero hoping to join a big league superhero team, but instead faces the cold, ugly truth about the premiere super group. The character bares a passing resemblance to DC Comics’ Stargirl, which led observers in 2006 to suggest the character was part of the reason The Boys left Wildstorm.
The show is executive produced by Preacher‘s Seth Rogen and Aaron Goldberg as a direct-to-series commitment. It is expected to debut sometime next year.
