The Boys Animated Spin-off Contains Scenes That Are Too Gruesome To Become A Live-action Show

The debut of The Boys Presents: Diabolical, the first animated spinoff of The Boys, is just around the corner. The Amazon Prime Video show is situated in the universe of the blockbuster success based on Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s comic book, allowing creator Eric Kripke to offer new characters and even long-time characters more screen time. Animation has the benefit of giving for more storyline options, even allowing creators to go larger and wilder than live-action versions. That’s a bold statement considering how insane things have become throughout the first two seasons of The Boys.

“We can try things with these and be completely nuts with form and different style,” Kripke told Variety. “I love that shit for being able to really hopscotch and have radically different styles and just try things that are the craziest things we possibly can — even a little too crazy for the show because it’s animation and you can take it so much further with animation than you can with live-action. That part has been a blast. We look at it like, what ideas can we get out of it and how far can we push this whole universe? I think the animated version gives us a chance to do that.”

The Boys Presents: Diabolical has received a flawless Rotten Tomatoes rating as of this morning. Nicole Drum of ComicBook.com was one of the reviewers that scored the miniseries four out of five stars. “When The Boys Presents: Diabolical was announced, The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke described the animated anthology series as ‘unexpected, funny, shocking, gory, moist, emotional episodes’ and suggested that they would rival the insanity that is The Boys live-action series,” Drum wrote in her review. In actuality, Kripke was only half-right. The Boys Presents: Diabolical is amusing, frightening, gruesome, and dramatic, but it’s nothing like as wild as its parent show. Aside from a few missteps, the show provides a decent look into the greater society in which Vought’s manufactured heroes operate, as well as a few glimpses into significant individuals and something that even the most casual of The Boys viewers can appreciate.

The anthology series consists of 8 episodes. Awkwafina, Garth Ennis, Eliot Glazer, Ilana Glazer, Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen, Simon Racioppa, Justin Roiland, Ben Bayouth, Andy Samberg, and Aisha Tyler are among the creative brains behind the episodes.
