Star Patrick Warburton claims its too early to go into specific on the infinitely anticipated live-action reboot of everyone's favorite insane blue crime-fighting arachnid, but that didn't stop him from revealing a bunch of details about the potential Amazon show in a recent interview.

Warburton spoke with MovieWeb, and told them:

‚ÄĘ He believes creator/showrunner Ben Edlund will make the show "darker and edgier" than the original, which I take to mean as it'll hue closer to Edlund's original comics where the Tick is more of a dangerous lunatic than a good-hearted lug

‚ÄĘ Warburton very much wants to do the role again, and he thinks things look "very interesting and positive" on the reboot front.

‚ÄĘ The show will benefit from modern CG and VFX.

‚ÄĘ There will very likely be a new Tick suit, although I think Warburton is implying that the suit will be made differently, not necessarily that it'll look much different.

‚ÄĘ That said, he was not necessarily a fan of wearing the original suit:

[The Tick] was the most fun I ever had. Except wearing the suit. When you put on a suit, and you need two tubes of K-Y Jelly to assist in putting on the suit, and then you basically spend the next 12 hours in a soup of sweat and K-Y jelly, its a side of it...That's not the most fun. ...it's not fun wearing that thing.

The whole interview is a fun read if you have a few; check it out here.
