Peter Serafinowicz

Months ago the much await arrival of Amazon’s azure arachnid avenger came in the form of an amazingly well received pilot (which is still available, FYI.) And while we have to wait a little longer for this third small screen iteration of The Tick (following the 1994 cartoon and the far too short Patrick Warburton FOX live-action series from 2001) some good news dropped earlier today on the production’s official twitter. They’ve started principal photography and star Peter Serafinowicz is rockin a vastly improved suit. Check it out: (more…)

SPOOOOOOOON!!! More Mighty Images from ‘The Tick’

The time is fast approaching when fans of The Tick will have their squishy vengeance against the TV networks what refused to continue telling his epic story. He’s been limited to 3 seasons in cartoony format and just one season in the live-action format. Now, The Tick is back and he’s looking for that thing he’s always looking for – JUSTICE! But before we can see him in all his bright blue glory, we have to settle for some pics from the set. Scroll on, o’ lover of costumed shenanigans, for there are Tick pics aplenty! (more…)

Remember The Tick? You know, “Spooon!” If you don’t, let’s recap: Ben Edlund created The Tick in 1986 as a mascot, absurdist parody of superheros, which spun off into its own comic in 1988. After the popularity of the character rose (due, mostly, to be downright hilarious), he received a children’s animated cartoon on Fox in 1994.  His likability and fame rocketed ever higher, which resulted in a short-lived live action TV series in 2001, starring Patrick Warburton as the blue-clad crusader (and it was an honest-to-goodness perfect casting choice). After years of fan clamor for some sort of continuation or reboot, Amazon decided to step up to the plate. Now, at SDCC 2016, we’ve gotten word of a release.  (more…)

Peter-Serafinowicz-Tick

With Amazon apparently recently reviving of the revival of ‘The Tick coming with the down note that Patrick Warburton would not be returning as the Big Blue Bug of Justice, the unfathomable question of who would replace him as the Azure Amnesiac Avenger was asked. Well, get ready to be fathomed because Deadline is reporting that the British actor-comedian Peter Serafinowicz has been tapped to don the antenna and psychoses of the Ben Edlund created comicbook character.

You probably missed it, not because you were asleep, but because it happened across the pond. Although now that I think about it, I’m sure there must be some way to listen to BBC Radio on the Internet as it happens. Oh Well, however you missed it, now you can listen to the radio broadcast of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett‘s Good Omens starring Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy), and Mark Heap (Spaced) playing Crowley and Aziraphalein respectively.

Nova

Soon after Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was confirmed, people turned their attention to what could be in store for the sequel and what new characters they might be seeing in the sequel. One character who has been getting a lot of mention is Nova – the Earth-born hero – who fights for Xander and the planets Nova Corps and is also a major warrior who fights against the Kree and the Skulls, albeit, in various incarnations. Furthermore there was also talk about Peter Quill‘s father showing up in the second installment.

In a recent interview with Movieweb,  James Gunn  talks about what impact these characters will have on the sequel – or rather lack there of. (more…)

Is There ‘Star Wars’ News on the Horizon?

Star-Wars-Logo-1920-1080

This story is going to feel like a meta take on Internet News reporting as a whole. Even the title of this article (which essentially reads “Is Star Wars News Coming Soon?”) feels like I’m sort of messing with your head and playing on the whole “Articles of Anticipation” phenomenon that has taken over Entertainment Reporting.

But no, this is a real story my darling Wookies, as it appears that we’re about to get some major bombs dropped on us from Disney and Lucasfilm. With “Star Wars Day” (May 4) less than a week away, and Star Wars News already clogging feeds everywhere, the timing couldn’t seem more right. The official Twitter account has been promoting the “holiday” for weeks, previews for Star Wars Rebels are airing, and every single rumor regarding J.J. Abrams’ new installment has been reported with painstaking detail. Now it seems that key members of the original cast (namely Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill) have all gathered in London. What announcement doth await us in the near future?

Axe-Cop-Wondercon

It would be premature and irresponsible of me to declare FOX’s forthcoming Axe Cop cartoon a ‘perfect,’ but damn your rules, it is! We’ve known for a while now that the titular character will be voiced  by the shows exec producer and master carpenter Nick Offerman, but what of the other characters? Well, maybe you should have a seat because over on the official Axe Cop blog they’ve announced the rest of the cast and it reads like the supergroup of  cartoon comedy voice talent.

When the show premieres as part of FOX’s ADHD cartoon line-up Offerman will be joined by Chldren’s Hospital alums Ken Marino and Rob Huebel as Flute Cop and the Grey Diamond respectively, comedian Patton Oswalt as Sockarang and British actor/comedian Peter Serafinowicz will do multiple voices including the villainous Dr. Doo-Doo. Pretty impressive, right? Well we’re only half way through (see why I told you to sit down?) In possibly the greatest casting of a man baby of to date, Baby Man will be voiced  Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill.) The cast also contains not one but two actors from Breaking BadJonathan Banks (Mike) and Giancarlo Esposito (Gus) and Vincent Kartheiser from TV’s Mad Men caps it all off.

Let’s watch the recently released upfront for the show together now!

If you listen closely you can hear the gentle sobbing of an [adult swim] executive.

Apparently if you are at SDCC this year and attend either the Axe Cop panel or the ADHD one you will get to see the first episode. The rest of us will have to wait till 11pm July 27th on FOX.
