Here’s your dose of happiness for the day: The Tick has survived Amazon’s ridiculous pilot process and is going to receive a full season’s worth of episodes.
Ben Affleck’s Batman movie gets a release window. Kevin Feige talks about Stan Lee’s future cameos. Lionsgate is open to more Twilight. Plus, meet Agents of SHIELD’s new director, more footage from Supergirl season two, and new looks at Passengers and Doctor Strange. Spoilers!
We’ve seen a glimpse of Peter Serafinowicz in the weirdly textured super-suit. We’ve heard from creator Ben Edlund about why he’s coming back to his signature creation. Now, we’re getting a look at Arthur, the main villain and some other heroes in Amazon’s new Tick series. It all looks goofy as heck.
Ben Edlund has a great laugh. Several of them, actually. One of them sounds like the sarcastic giggle of a skinny kid who used to insult his tormentors in ways that they wouldn’t even understand. There’s another kind of tittering that rings with nostalgia, as he thinks about elements from previous adaptations of The…
Yeah, that’s Peter Serafinowicz encased in a giant, bright blue Tick costume. The new Tick show is gonna be weird.
All while still being a recurring part of Preacher. Where is he going to find the time?
Hello friends, did you like The Tick? With its surreal parodies of superheroes? Well then do we have a quote from creator Ben Edlund for you!
You might not know his name—or be able to place him at first glance—but you know British comedian Peter Serafinowicz. Best reference is probably as Shaun and Ed’s uptight roommate in Shaun of the Dead, but his resume is extensive: Guardians of the Galaxy, Spy, and Parks and Recreation, to name a few ... and now, The…
Ben Edlund’s blue-suited hero the Tick, previously seen on TV in both animated and live-action form, is returning to the latter format thanks to Amazon, which just ordered a pilot for a new version. But original star Patrick Warburton, who’s got another full-time TV gig at the moment, won’t be a part of it.
Batman's had a pretty spectacular career, but even the Caped Crusader has a few moments he'd like to forget. Chief among them would probably be his first live-action excursion, a serial released in 1943 that featured Bats squaring off against a mad Japanese scientist/horrible stereotype. So if you want to check out…
From the department of experiments no one ever asked for, these folks decided to inject a blood-filled tick with hydrogen peroxide. The results are distinctly messy.
Last week, we asked you about the greatest lunar destructions, scenes in which the moon is punched, cracked, blown up, and otherwise harmed. This week, we turn out attention to scenes in which the moon is defaced—used as advertising, engraved with signatures, and in one case, splattered with blood.
These bugs might just be the hardest organisms on the planet. They're the only creatures observed alive inside an electron microscope that actually survived this airless, high-radiation environment. This discovery could mean big things for life on other worlds.
Whenever you see an animal through an electron microscope, the animal is dead. Pretty or monstrous, but dead dead dead. DEAD. Not this tick, however. They put her alive inside the device and she survived. Not only that, she was moving. Watch.
