The Hulk Is Coming TO ABC!

| Filed under: TV News


Don't groan! Wait till we tell you who's behind this!

Sources are confirming that acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick are finalizing a deal to create the new TV series version of The Hulk for ABC.

Taking a page from the original series rather than the movies, the new show would focus on Bruce Banner in his younger years, enabling the studio to hire one foxy hunk to play the Hulk. The process of creating the mean-green machine will be different than the movies as well. Along with minimal CGI animation, the monster will be mostly made of a mixture of prosthetics and puppetry. While Del Toro directing the pilot episode is still pending on his schedule, he will be heavily involved in the designing of the character Hulk. David will be writing the script.

Yeah, regretting that groan now, aren't you? We thought so.

You have a bit of a wait for this one to hit the small screen (they're looking a summer 2012 premiere), but if they do they're best work on this, we think it'll be worth the wait.

How many of U are stoked to see The Hulk return to primetime?

    The last hulk movie was a HIT that made decent money!!! Great film , acting- Much better than the first one. Why would Marvel settle for a cheezy TV show?

    As someone who liked the Hulk movies this sounds like shit, prosthetics and puppetry, that might have worked in the 70's but sounds to fucking cheesy now.

    Yes, I was groaning. Then I perked WAY up when I read about Guillermo del Toro as a part of this. Then I lost all hope when I read: "the new show would focus on Bruce Banner in his younger years, enabling the studio to hire one foxy hunk to play the Hulk". This is NOT a project for a Justin Beiber type. I hope they hire a "foxy hunk" 30 to 35 for this. Hollywood needs to understand the power of that kinda guy too. Don't ruin a potentially excellent TV project.
