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.

The Tick is officially a go. Amazon has given a series order to the latest reboot of Ben Edlund‘s big blue superhero, along with the new comedies Jean-Claude Van Johnson, starring (you guessed it) Jean-Claude Van Damme, and I Love Dick, from Transparent creator Jill Soloway. Read More »
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.
