Last year we reported that Guilermo del Toro and David Eick had signed on to the Incredible Hulk TV series from ABC Studios and Marvel TV. Since then there has not been much news on the porject. Del Toro recently spoke to FEARnet and gave an update:
Is Hulk still happening?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. 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.
Is it safe to assume this will be a different Hulk than we've ever seen before?
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.
In the earlier report the series was said to focus on Dr. Bruce Banner in his 20's and that it would mix CGI with practical effects. This has the potential to be better than the two recent film versions, so let's hope it turns out as cool as it sounds. What are your thoughts?
