Last November, it was announced that Guilermo del Toro and David Eick were boarding the "Incredible Hulk" television series at ABC Studios and Marvel TV. Now, del Toro has provided an update to FEARnet:
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.
Last year, the trades reported that the show would feature a Dr. Bruce Banner in his 20's and that it would mix CGI with practical effects to depict the Hulk on-screen.
