First Look at Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick in the Amazon Original Series Trailer - ON OUR RADAR

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Thursday, July 13, 2017

The Establishing Shot's First Look at Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick in the Amazon Original Series Trailer - ON OUR RADAR To be fair I was never a big reader of Ben Edlund's The Tick comics I was however a huge fan of the 2001 Tick TV Show with Patrick Warburton in the lead role, with his wit and dry delivery he was born to play the role, in fact he is very much,  much born to play any role he gets. I can't get enough of his original and unique droll comedy.

     So since first heard Amazon's upcoming version of The Tick I have been very curious. I was sad to discover that  Patrick Warburton would not be involved but stoked to hear that our very own  Peter Serafinowicz would be suiting up for the role of The Tick.

     You may know him as Darth Maul or Supernova Denarian What a bunch of a-holes Saal or Cut-Rate James Mason but his numerous roles in many, many, many, many productions from Spitting Image, Spaced, World of Pub, Shaun of the Dead, Little Britain, Doctor Who, Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, Spy, through his eponymous The Peter Serafinowicz Show, Parks and Recreation, South Park, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mr. Sloane, to his recent cameo in John Wick: Chapter 2 have seen him deliver his his own brand of comedic stylings making him a fan favourite and me looking forward to Amazon's The Tick.

     Since viewing the original series of The Tick the character's creator Ben Edlund, who came up with The Tick whilst at high school, has gone on from strength to strength and not only involved with various genre favourites including; Firefly, Angel, Gotham, Powers and one of my favourites Jackson Publick's outrageously hilarious The Venture Bros. which has much in common with The Tick and he will also be executive producer on The Tick so we can hopefully expect something special.

     I received some stuff about The Tick a little while back but didn't get a chance to post it – but when we received a first look heads up at the brand-new trailer for The Tick I thought I would get this up.
