A report says that Fox and Amazon have made a deal for Amazon to do a new live-action series based on Ben Edlund‘s The Tick. The show revolved around a giant, good-natured and bumbling hero played by Patrick Warburton. A spot-on blend of broad comedy and sharp satire, the show originally ran for only nine episodes on Fox from 2001 to 2002. Or, as Edlund once described it: “a superheroic portrait of genuine human lameness.” The best news: Edlund and Warburton will both be part of The Tick revival.

Outside of the big-screen Superman films and The Incredible Hulk on TV, the offerings were pretty slim. But William Katt wore a red costume as the title character in The Greatest American Hero, an original TV series that centered around a schoolteacher who acquires a super-powered suit from aliens, but loses the instructions and has to learn the hero game by trial and error. Now Fox is prepping a new Greatest American Hero TV series, with The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street writer/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller as guiding producers.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Kevin Smith has always been a comic book fan. His second and third movies were steeped in comics. To this day, he’ll occasionally write a comic and even maintains a podcast about Batman. And for a comic book fan/filmmaker, there’s really nothing better than getting Stan Lee to appear in your film.

Now, almost 20 years later, Smith got Lee to return for his latest film, Yoga Hosers. Check out the image and more below. Read More »
