The Official Trailer For Amazon's New Series THE TICK Is Here!

The Official Trailer For Amazon's New Series THE TICK Is Here!

The 2001 live-action series starred Seinfeld and Venture Bros. luminary Patrick Warburton as the overblown vigilante. With an even lighter tone, a new, bluer costume, and pretty definitive confirmation that the Tick isn't just in Arthur's imagination, The Tick* looks like it'll be Amazon's first superhero hit.

When Amazon released the pilot episode of its TV series The Tick on August 18th a year ago, audiences seemed to respond very positively - so much so that the series was commissioned. The show stars Guardians of the Galaxy's Peter Serafinowicz as the antennae-spouting hero of the title. Once again, he's joined by a mild-mannered new sidekick named Arthur, played by Griffin Newman.

The Tick is a comic character created by Ben Edlund in 1986, as a spoof of American comic book superheroes.

"The Tick" is set to hit Amazon Prime on August 25. But if you are looking for a more irreverent and knowingly silly take on the superhero genre, The Tick is a refreshing change of pace. Over 150,000 movies and TV episodes, including thousands for Amazon Prime members at no additional cost. The success of that pilot prompted the streaming service to order another nine episodes to complete the first season. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he falls in league with a unusual blue superhero.

What do you think about the new trailer? Wally Pfister is an executive producer of the series and also a director, and while he only has a few past directing credits he cut his teeth as a cinematographer for Christopher Nolan, earning four Oscar nominations and a win for "Inception" (2010).
