For years, Marvel has evolved with the exponential growth of its cinematic universe known as the MCU. Now, it appears that Amazon Prime will take a page out of Marvel’s book with the growth of its superhero-led universe. The streaming platform has enjoyed the growth of its latest superhero series, The Boys, over the last few years, but it won’t stop there. A recent report from Variety indicated that Amazon Prime is gearing up to launch the Vought Cinematic Universe or VCU. The cinematic endeavor has begun with The Boys and will continue with not one, but two spinoff series. The first of two spinoff series is an animated anthology called The Boys Presents: Diabolical which was launched in March. The second spinoff series will be a superhero saga centered around college students. However, it doesn’t have a title as of yet.
“I can’t even tell you exactly when Season 4 is coming, but I am excited that we’re going to have our new show, our spinoff series, coming at some time next year. And I think that’s going to be really, really great and satisfying. And what we’ve been seeing so far on that one is fantastic. So I can’t wait,” Vernon Sanders of Amazon mentioned while speaking to Variety.
Sanders didn’t reveal the title, but he did say that production has already begun
“We have a title, but I don’t know if we’ve fully locked it in yet. So we will get back to you quickly with that. But it’s awesome, we’re in production now and it’s going great. And I think it’s everything that everyone loves from The Boys, but a completely new spin,” he added.
For now, the focus remains on season three of The Boys. The season finale is set to debut in early July.
