Amazon has released the first trailer for The Tick reboot, and I can’t say that I’m super optimistic after watching it. If I’m honest, anyone but Patrick Warburton in this role seems wrong to me, but I will definitely give it a chance when it arrives on Amazon August 25th. [click to continue…]
Once upon a time, there was a live-action series of Ben Edlund’s The Tick. Patrick Warburton starred as the big blue hero and while that was as wonderful as it sounds, the series didn’t last. Only nine episodes were aired. However, Amazon and Fox could be breathing life back into the franchise.
A revival of the The Tick with Warburton back in the starring role is a rumor for now, but People says their sources are telling them the “superhero parody is now being revived on Amazon” and that Warburton’s already on board:
“Warburton – who has also appeared on Seinfeld and Rules of Engagement – recently inked a deal with Amazon and Sony to reprise his role, with Edlund producing and writing, according to the source.”
I’d be completely in favor of this. Would you like to see another stab at the live-action series?
