It was recently announced that Disney and Marvel are going to develop a new TV series for ABC based on the classic comic book character The Incredible Hulk. Today We've learned from io9 that director Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica producer David Eick are going pitch the network a take on the new series! Here's what they had to say,
Hulk has a "showrunner wanted" placard around its neck, and sources are saying that Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica producer David Eick will be pitching a take. ABC had no comment.
How freakin' cool is that!? I wonder what the pitch is, and will ABC pick it up? I honestly don't see why they wouldn't want to work with Del Toro on this project, everyone wants to work with him right now. The guy has an incredible imagination, and I'm sure he's come up with something incredible! No pun intended.
What do you all think about Del Toro possibly working on this new Hulk TV series?
Marvel is also looking at other possible TV adaptations which include Cloak and Dagger and the following,
- Heroes for Hire (focusing on ex-con Luke Cage offering to take on bad guys for a price);
- The Eternals (a race of superpowered beings live amid humanity in secret, inspiring legends);
- Agents of Atlas, Alter Ego (private investigator Jessica Jones takes on cases involving superhumans);
- Moon Knight, the Red Hood (a low-rent criminal discovers a cloak that gives him superpowers);
- Ka-Zar (a Tarzan-type and his saber-toothed tiger must journey to the concrete jungle to seek justice);
- Daughters of the Dragon (a dynamic female duo, one with a bionic arm and the other a granddaughter of a samurai, open a private-detective agency); and
- The Punisher (one man wages a war on crime; already adapted as two feature films).
