The Incredible Hulk: New Hulk TV Series Still in the Works

Guillermo del ToroThough 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.”

What do you think? Are you interested in a new Hulk TV show?

    Well if the hulk should look any good they have to use motion capture wich is being used in Josh Whedon’s The Avengers where Mark Ruffalo is in lead as Bruce Banner.

    Cool go for it.I would like to see the new live -action feature a live -action she-hulk too because she never had a live-action appearance. I think she-hulk should be played by an actress that worksout in the gym. Someone hot beautiful

    @Bizzle: The films WERE NOT **** and made tons of money at the box office. Any new TV show based on the Hulk has to be like the source material it’s based on (which the movies, in particular movie #2, got very right) not based on a TV show that’s based on the source material. Please, all of you, pick up the comic book and read it and get a true reading of what the Hulk is.

    @Gilberto Edwards:A world of NO.

    I don’t want Ferrrigno near the Hulk anymore, nor do I want a retread of the original show. I’d like to see them continue on with the storyline from the first two movies, instead.

    Stephen Lang would be great as General Ross after seeing him as the bad guy in Avatar.

    I want them to have a better Bruce Banner they need person like Bill Bixby and Edward Norton, to play the lead of Bruce Banner. And first runner up is Edward Norton and second runner is Danile Radcliffe from Harry Potter.

    Is anyone surprised that Marvel was interested even if the show’s creator is wanting to do something different? Give Marvel some money and they have no problem with anyone altering the Marvel universe. I will still watch the show, but it would be kind of nice if the Hulk had a consistent back story.

    Wow, I am so on the fence about this. I would love to see a good Hulk on TV, however, I am not sure I want to see a “re-imagining” of the show. It will be expensive as all hell, it will be shorter so that more commercials to pay for it will be played, it will have so much against it the first time the show deviates from the accepted canon of the Hulk…

    But I went in not expecting to like ST2009, and I must say the cast made the movie for me. The script was not top notch by far, the inclusion of Spock was laughable, and the overall death of nearly all Vulcans was a major negative…

    But I can not wait for more of them to be shown. :)
