It looks like the series will be a The Boys version of X-Men and The Hunger Games.

Showrunner Craig Rosenberg is swt to write the pilot and executive produce. The Boys creator Eric Kripke will also executive produce along with executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver. The Boys executive producers Neal H.
