Amazon released the trailer for The Tick Season One: Part Two after its first six episodes premiered back in August. The superhero spoof series starring Peter Serafinowicz finds the titular true-blue hero and his partner Arthur convinced that The Terror (Jackie Earle Haley), believed by the world deceased, isn’t dead after all. And as we learned in the first half of season one, they’re correct. Now, after 15 years The Terror is officially back to terrorize the public. Evil is on the march, and The City is right in its way. Something terrible is going to happen, and Destiny needs her champions now more than ever. The Tick and Arthur round up the gang in a crash collision course between justice and villainy.
Check out the trailer for The Tick Season One: Part Two below:
The trailer is pretty action-packed, showing off The Terror’s Magneto-inspired (parody) outfit from the comics as well as some menacing action from Yara Martinez’s Miss Lint, who is bringing some much-needed sparky flying. One of the stand-outs of the trailer is seeing The Tick and Arthur assembling their own squad of heroes a la Avengers-style, gathering Overkill (Scott Speiser), Tinfoil Kevin (Devin Ratray), Superian (Brendan Hines), Midnight (voiced by Townsend Coleman), Dangerboat (voiced by Alan Tudyk), and Dot (Valorie Curry). The trailer shows that the series will continue its irreverent humor and its send-up of the superhero general. Oh, and of course, there’s Spoooooon.
“It’s got a lot of heart,” Serafinowicz said. “It does things that haven’t been fashionable, it’s got a sweetness about it. Also, the Tick, my character, has got a superhero that is so pure and old-fashioned that seems to not be in vogue that much anymore. A bit like how Christopher Reeve’s Superman was or Adam West’s Batman. It’s got a straightforwardness to it.”
“It’s also this very absurd comedy with these crazy ideas but with real characters that you can invest in emotionally,” adds Griffin Newman. “So it’s like, what if Airplane was funny but you also cared about the people? What if you were worried every time Frank Drebin went into action in Naked Gun? That’s what we’re kind of trying to do, that’s our goal.”
