The Boys is one of the most popular superhero franchises around today, and it's not hard to see why. The Amazon Prime series is a gritty, gory, and darkly hilarious antidote to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, offering a genuinely fresh take on superheroes in the age of Instagram.
With season three of The Boys expected at some point in 2022 (assuming the world continues on its cautious path back to normality), there's only one real question on our minds: when are we going to see this show adapted into the brutal video game it deserves?
Just take a look at this mod of Homelander in GTA V for a taste of what The Boys: The Video Game could look like:
As it turns out, a video game adaptation is exactly the kind of thing Amazon might be considering right now, if a recent tweet is anything to go by. The official Twitter account of The Boys recently looked to gauge interest in a game, and received some incredibly enthusiastic responses as a result.
The vast majority of fans seemed to agree that any video game based on The Boys should definitely be open-world. Ideally it'd also be just as gory as the show, with some brutal fights and a pleasingly crunchy combat system. One or two joked that Amazon should just put Homelander in Mortal Kombat, but I think we can do better than that.
It's important to note that a tweet gauging interest is hardly confirmation that The Boys is getting a video game, but it's still interesting to see that the idea is something being floated around in any capacity. Let's just hope Amazon has the good sense to give any potential adaptation to an established developer, or else we could be headed for another Crucible situation. Nobody wants that, do they?
