Though a new Wonder Woman TV series failed to get a greenlight from NBC, a new show based on the Hulk is still in the works. This is in addition to the character appearing in the upcoming Joss Whedon-directed feature film, The Avengers.
Guillermo del Toro is working on the proposed series with former Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick.
According to a recent interview with FearNet, del Toro said, “We turned in the outline to ABC about four weeks ago. And then we did a rewrite for ABC on the outline, and now we are lining up the pages.”
He didn’t talk about what direction they’ll be taking with the character but don’t expect a repeat of the 1978-82 Bill Bixby series, The Incredible Hulk. They want to take a unique approach. de Toro noted, “I think so. Or we wouldn’t be trying it. Actually, one of the points of this project early on with Marvel, was ‘We’re going to do this thing different, and here’s how. Are you interested?’ And they were.”
