Sony Pictures Television and Amazon have cast Peter Serafinowicz as the titular superhero in the upcoming The Tick live-action series set for Amazon Prime.
Serafinowicz was recently featured in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy.
Original live-action Tick, Patrick Warburton, is on board the series as an executive producer. Creator Ben Edlund is also returning and will write and executive produce. The pilot episode is being directed by Christopher Nolan's cinematographer and the director of Transcendence Wally Pfister.
Peter Serafinowicz joins Griffin Newman as Tick's sidekick Arthur aka Moth Man, and Valorie Curry is paying Arthur’s sister, Dot.
The Tick first started off as a comic book before becoming an animated series in 1994 followed by the 2001 live-action series.
