Love the comics & that teaser genuinely made me smile at the end. If done right this could be superb.

I was thinking he'd be better suited to playing Wee Hughie's landlord.

Sounds like Hughie's a yank here. Ah well, I can live with that. Still looks very promising

I hope it's better than the Preacher tv show, but it's made by the same people.

I gave up on Preacher halfway through the second series. But then, the source material got on my tits a bit too.

At least there's a few f-bombs thrown about in that The Boys trailer.  The Preacher series seemed a bit odd without them.  I know swearing isn't big or clever or necessary for a good show, but, well, it's Preacher.

The trouble with Preacher is that most of the source material is fantastic, but the TV people chose the most boring stories from the comic -- Odin Quincannon, and all the stuff in New Orleans. Then they made up a whole sub-plot about Arseface and Hitler which wasn't in the comic and  was boring and added nothing. Bizarre choices, and a squandered opportunity.

For me, Preacher was all about movement: a road comic.  That the series chose to ground it in a single location speaks to a studios need for a core cast & a set that doesn't shift around too much.  Which is all fine, but it's not really Preacher.

Not too worried here about Hughie not being Scottish (Simon Pegg playing his dad makes me happy enough) but I really hope Butcher still talks like Michael Caine.  Otherwise he'll just be another Negan.
