Guts, guts, and gore galore: welcome to Godolkin University!
The new series The Boys will be bloody or will not be! Judging by the new trailer for Gen V, which has just been uploaded by Prime Video (below), the spin-off will push the slider of the original series by offering a maximum of superpowers used for disgusting purposes. In every sense of the term.
As the sweet and innocent Marie – with bloody powers – arrives in the college of Supes, she will discover that the competition will be fierce between the students. Worse still, Vought, who runs the place, hides terrible secrets within these walls. And the students might actually be prisoners…
The official synopsis details: “Set in the evil world of The Boys, Gen V expands the universe at Godolkin University, the prestigious superhero-only college where students train to become the next generation of heroes, preferably with highly lucrative contracts. Now you know what happens when superheroes go bad, but not all of them are corrupt from the start. Beyond the typical chaos of college, which consists of finding oneself and partying, these young people face explosive situations…literally. As students compete for popularity and good grades, it’s clear that the stakes become much higher when superpowers are involved. When the group of super kids discover that something bigger and more sinister is happening at school, they are put to the test: will they be the heroes or the villains of their story?
