Season two of “The Boys” is upon us, and fans can expect the superhero action series to continue touching on political and current events. Show star Erin Moriarty says the material is not hard to find: "It’s a reflection of the state the world is in." (Sept. 2)
KARL URBAN: I think this show, what it does wonderfully well is it takes a well-known trope of superheroes, a genre that we've all sort of indulged ourselves in for the past couple of decades, and it turns on its head and imagines what they would be like if they were actually like real celebrities that we have in the media today.
JACK QUAID: It's really cool to explore very, very real issues from this can slightly heightened and sometimes not so heightened from reality place. I don't know. It's just so cool that we don't have to-- we don't have to pretend that the world's not on fire for our show.
- We can't just kill everyone.
- That is exactly what we're going to do.
ERIN MORIARTY: It's a reflection of the state the world is in. You know, the world is kind of feeding us a lot of content, and I think, you know, it's good to make subjects less taboo. It's good to expose them and depict them.
GIANCARLO ESPOSITO: It's really about seeing our humanity in a different way, because humanity is connected to intention. And we all have faults. And we all have places where there's a chink in the armor, where we're a little weak. But being able to look at that with compassion and understanding.
- Great. Cool. Totally.
- 1, 2, 3, hit it. [INAUDIBLE].
