'The Tick' First Trailer: Amazon's New Superhero Series

The Tick

After a well received entry into Amazon's streaming pilot season previous year, The Tick is finally gearing up for its full debut season. The pilot for The Tick starred 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). Amazon is clearly betting big on their first foray into superheroics, as the streaming titan will be showcasing the series prominently at San Diego Comic-Con later this month.

The animated Tick series isn't the only adaptation Fox has tried creating.

Will this series be more successful than the short-lived live-action series from 2001? The show ran for three seasons and has since become a cult hit.

Amazon appears to have made the third time the charm.

EU's Brexit negotiator sets out tough conditions for UK
Barnier said the European Union team would send additional position papers on divorce issues to London ahead of next week's talks. The UK government will come up with position papers before the weekend, an official told EUobserver.

As is evident from this promotional footage, Peter Serafinowicz is perfectly cast as the mysterious Tick - the giant blue superhero who teams with a timid accountant to fight his various nemeses.

Behind the camera, the series is in good hands as well. If you have seen the pilot episode of the series, you probably know what I'm talking about. Every episode is slated to be directed by Wally Pfister, best known as Christopher Nolan's longtime cinematographer.

Our first look at The Tick arrived last summer, but since then, we haven't gotten much promotion for the show, which will arrive on Amazon in August. In fact, it kind of makes fun of numerous common, stereotypical superhero tropes in TV and movies.
