Sorry, The Tick fans, but it seems the superhero’s big blue destiny is officially cancellation.
Last month, Amazon canceled The Tick after two seasons, and fans were rightfully disappointed. But at the time, series creator Ben Edlund offered a spark of hope that the series might be picked up somewhere else. However, that spark was officially washed out with news that the series could not find a new home. So news of The Tick canceled is final. Read More »
Even though Solo: A Star Wars Story ended up being a disappointment at the box office, there were fans who still came away satisfied. That might have been helped by the fact that the ending of the movie featured a surprise twist that no one saw coming: the return of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace villain Darth Maul.
The end of Solo: A Star Wars Story reveals that Darth Maul is the mastermind behind the Crimson Dawn criminal organization that set the entire heist at the center of the movie into motion. The voice is provided by actor Sam Witwer, who played Darth Maul when the character returned during The Clone Wars animated series, as well as Star Wars Rebels. But it turns out the original voice actor from The Phantom Menace, Peter Serafinowicz of Shaun of the Dead and The Tick, had actually recorded dialogue for the movie as well. Unfortunately, he ended up being replaced before the final cut hit theaters. Read More »

Attention, citizens: The Tick has officially been renewed for a second season.
The half-hour comic book comedy series starring Peter Serafinowicz as the oblivious titular blue-suited superhero who may or may not be a figment of mild-mannered accountant Arthur Everest’s (Griffin Newman) imagination has been greenlit for its season 2 by Amazon Studios.

Attempting to bring a little more comedy to the superhero genre, Amazon Studios is reviving The Tick for a new live-action series that will be available exclusively for Amazon Prime members.
Our first look at The Tick arrived last summer, but since then, we haven’t gotten much promotion for the show, which will arrive on Amazon in August. That changes today with the first trailer for the series that puts Guardians of the Galaxy and Shaun of the Dead supporting actor Peter Serafinowicz (who you might also know as the voice of Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace) in the big blue suit as The Tick. He’s just a big, goofy delight.

Peter Serafinowicz has some big shoes to fill with the rebooted live-action version of The Tick. The character was last played by Patrick Warburton in the far too short-lived Fox television series. A scheduling conflict meant he couldn’t play Ben Edlund‘s character again, but we’re confident Serafinowicz will make for a fine replacement.
The Tick pilot debuted on Amazon last night, but if you haven’t seen it yet you can get a taste of Serafinowicz in action in two new clips from The Tick.

We were initially disappointed to hear that the upcoming revival of The Tick would not have Patrick Warburton returning to the lead role. But by the looks of it, Peter Serafinowicz should be a more than worthy successor. A batch of new The Tick stills have been revealed, showing more of Serafinowicz in that musclebound blue suit, plus Griffin Newman as Arthur, Jackie Earle Haley as The Terror, Brendan Hines as Superian, and more. Check out the latest The Tick images below. Read More »
Since his creation as a comic book store newsletter mascot in 1986, the character of The Tick has never left the hands of creator Ben Edlund. By 1988, Edlund was writing and drawing the adventures of this blue-suited superhero in a self-published comic book. In 1994, he created an animated series based on the character and his ensemble of enemies and allies that ran for three seasons. In 2001, he created a short-lived but beloved live action TV show, with the great Patrick Warburton filling out the suit. Now, The Tick and Edlund are back and heading to Amazon’s pilot season, where subscribers can watch the first episode of new shows that are under consideration for full season pick-ups and cast their votes on which pilots they enjoy the most.
While you won’t be able to sample the show until next month, you can take a first look at Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick, whose new costume is…a little tight in a few key areas.

A couple of weeks ago we got the exciting news that Amazon’s revival of cult superhero comedy The Tick was on, with an official pilot order and everything. There was just one big catch: Patrick Warburton wouldn’t be filling that big blue suit again. Instead, the team involved (including Tick creator Ben Edlund) would go on the hunt for a new lead. And now they’ve found one in Peter Serafinowicz. Read More »
Guardians of the Galaxy might be Marvel’s most elaborate film to date when it comes to easter eggs. I’ve watched the film twice now and have noticed a ton of inside jokes, references to characters from the comic books, 1980’s callbacks and more.I attempted to compile the most complete listing of Guardians of the Galaxy easter eggs, including (possible spoilers teased in the following):
- Who is Peter Quill’s father? Does Peter Quill’s mother have a relationship with Captain America?
- The geography of the four revealed Infinity Gems (which stones have been revealed and where are they?)
- Many Marvel comic book characters you didn’t see appear in Guardians (including a prominent female Krylorian techno-artist)
- A look at many of the treasures which can be seen inside The Collector’s museum (who or what is in the cocoon?)
- 8 cameo appearances from filmmakers, actors and even pets revealed (Nathan Fillion and Seth Green, where?)
- The stars behind the CG characters (who played Rocket on set?)
- A look at the 1980’s pop culture references in the film (did you know Star-Lord’s ship is named after a 1980’s television star?)
- How the comic book canon differs from what appeared on screen
- Funny credits and more
Take a look at /Film’s Guardians of the Galaxy easter egg list after the jump.
