If the 2017 batch of Tick episodes released by Amazon were a sample platter, it looks like the meal is right around the corner, and it’s a big, blood-filled sac of action-packed drama and justice. The latest trailer for the new live-action incarnation of Ben Edlund’s over-the-top hero The Tick is here to tell us what we can look forward to and when.
The best part of the trailer, though, is just how much is going on in it. There’s always that danger of showing all the good parts, but these are just moments from some much bigger scenes. It seems like the team behind the show was maybe waiting for approval for a bigger budget, because the action is cranked way up this time around. The villain known as the Terror is out in the open and flying around in his giant rocket-powered letter T while the Tick teams up with heroes like Overkill and Dot. And of course his loyal sidekick and friend, Arthur. Also, there’s a dog wearing American flag-themed sunglasses.
Once again, Peter Serafinowicz is on point as the Tick, and even in these short trailers he’s a blast to watch. While the CW’s superheroes are returning this next week, big blue will be showing up a little bit later – The Tick returns to Amazon on February 23.
