Witness THE TICK in Action in First Two Great Clips from the New Series
“When destiny speaks, she speaks to me.”
As a longtime fan of The Tick, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Amazon’s upcoming series, but I was hoping for the best. Thanks to EW, was have two clips from the series to share with you. These show us our first footage from the series, and it looks great! There’s a good amount of action mixed in with the funny Tick humor that fans enjoy.
Judging by these two clips, actor Peter Serafinowicz is fantastic in the role! He pulls off the character wonderfully, and he’s incredibly fun to watch. I was a little worried when he was first cast, but he embodies the characters so well. There’s nothing for me to complain about here. Amazon’s The Tick looks like it’s going to be an awesome series! When talking about the series, creator Ben Edlund says:
“It’s a tremendous balancing act because it had to have stakes, it had to have blood, it had to have certain things that are part of the living language of superheroes in the popular culture today. It has a responsibility if it wants to play in that pool to have life and death, to have a relationship to violence that none of the other iterations did. And so how do you have The Tick slip in a pool of blood and have it be funny? You have to find a very specific tone.”
He goes on to talk about Serafinowicz in the role of the big blue hero saying:
“His voice is The Tick’s voice — it’s what I hear in my head now. And to kind of have that take place when combating the very, very large shadow that is cast by Patrick Warburton and his way of characterizing this creature, that is a tremendous relief to feel like there is a new authoritative take on this character in live-action.”
It’s explained that this version of The Tick is different from previous versions. This version is described as being weirder and more dangerous. You’ll get a taste of that in the two clips that I’ve embedded for you below.
The Tick is set to premiere on Amazon today, so if these clips sell you on it, you can watch the pilot episode right now!
