The Boys is scheduled to broadcast its season 3 on Amazon Prime, and the teaser for an in feature ‘Dawn of the Seven: The Bourke Cut’ was officially unveiled. The trailer is a fantastic spoof of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Here’s Snyder’s most sporting reaction to the parody film:
What the Dawn of the Seven trailer shows:
As oversaturated pictures of masked superheroes flood the screen, a loud voice booms, “We are your heroes”. A blue-clad man marches through the debris of the city, while an armored lady spins in fear, waiting for another attack. A title card decorated with sparks and steel emerges from the darkness, proclaiming the film’s title, Dawn of the Seven. However, the characters on display are far from Batman or Superman. Homelander, A-Train, and Queen Maeve are representatives of the cruel superhero gang The Seven, antagonists on Amazon’s The Boys series. However, one might be excused for mistaking the trailer for filmmaker Zack Snyder’s newest DCEU film.
Jack Snyder’s response to the trailer:
The trailer makes it perfectly clear that the film is a mockery of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and it seems brilliant. Now, you’d assume Snyder would be bothered by the spoof, but he wasn’t. The filmmaker responded on Twitter, and his comment is highly appropriate. Snyder put his version of Justice League through a terrible ordeal to get it done. Over the period of five years, the filmmaker received several fan requests before eventually getting the call to see his dream fulfilled. So he tweeted after he viewed the teaser “Congratulations to Director Bourke. Excited to see your vision realized”.
Other superhero references in The Boys
The Boys’ makers hinted an A-team surprise after the climactic fight of Avengers: Endgame in October 2020, so this isn’t the first time the program has referenced real-world franchises. In addition, Richard Madden linked his own squad in Eternals to The Boys in July 2021, citing it as a source of inspiration for his film. Mesmer was portrayed by popular child actor Haley Joel Osment and symbolized the Teen Titans parody Teenage Kix. There was also Lamplighter, a recurring figure with powers similar to Green Lantern, played by Shawn Ashmore.
The Boys season 3 Releases June 3 on Amazon Prime.
