The Tick is coming!
The blue-suited superhero will be heading to Amazon’s pilot season next month, where subscribers can watch the first episode of new shows under consideration for full season pick-ups and cast votes for the ones that they enjoyed the most.
Before that, why not check out a few new images from the pilot, including leading man Peter Serafinowicz as the titular superhero and Whoopi Goldberg interviewing Brendan Hines' Superian.
Well, that suit certainly is... snug.
Honestly, we don't know how we feel about this one. While previous versions of the character have served as a rather silly approach to the world of costumed crime fighters, it sounds as though the new Amazon pilot will be more grounded. Additionally, is there anyone more suited to the role then Patrick Warburton? We think not.
However, we are more than willing to give The Tick a chance. After all, how bad could it be?
In a world where superheroes have been real for decades, an underdog accountant with zero powers comes to realize his city is owned by a global super villain long-thought dead. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a strange blue superhero. The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy), Griffin Newman (Vinyl), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Valorie Curry (House of Lies), Yara Martinez (Jane the Virgin) and Brendan Hines (Scorpion). The Tick is executive produced by Ben Edlund (Supernatural), Barry Josephson (Bones) and Barry Sonnenfeld (A Series of Unfortunate Events), directed by Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight), and written by Edlund. The Tick is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television.
The Tick arrives August 19th on Amazon.
