OK, so remember last week when we were pretty annoyed that FTN Favour Patrick Warburton and co would NOT be returning for the new Amazon The Tick Pilot?

Well, while we are still Ticked-off (I make no apologies), this news has brought a slight ray of sunshine.

British actor-comedian Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Star Wars: Episode I, Guardians of the Galaxy) will play The Tick in the new series based on Ben Edlund‘s comic character, report Deadline. Edlund, as we reported recently too, is writing and executive producing.

 The reboot is bringing back the eponymous muscle-bound, antennae-sporting superhero (Serafinowicz). In the new incarnation, the blue-suited Tick is recovering from a memory loss and ends up reteaming with his sidekick Arthur (Griffin Newman) to fight evil. The two are surrounded by a new host of characters that include Arthur’s sister Dot (Valorie Curry).

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
