"No matter where you go, there you are."


Peter Serafinowicz will be The Tick


the tick

Back in 2001 there was a live action series of Ben Edlund’s brilliant comic, The Tick. Patrick Warburton played the blue suited hero and it was glorious. There is now an Amazon pilot in the works and Warburton is returning, but only as a producer.

This time The Tick will be played by Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy, Shaun of the Dead, and the voice of Darth Maul). That is great casting. He is immensely funny, a great actor and a superb impressionist.

In the new incarnation, the blue-suited Tick is recovering from a memory loss and ends up reteaming with his sidekick Arthur (Griffin Newman) to fight evil. The two are surrounded by a new host of characters that include Arthur’s sister Dot (Valorie Curry).

I wonder what other characters will be returning? I’d love to see Nestor Carbonell as Batmanuel once more, but I don’t think that will happen.

Amazon’s version of The Tick will be written and produced by Edlund, who created the character back in the 1980s. He was also has been behind both the previous live-action series and the 1990s animated series.

Wally Pfister (Transcendence) will direct the pilot.
