New Incredible Hulk TV Series Gets Nod, Guillermo del Toro to Direct

A new take on The Incredible Hulk TV series is in the works and it will be helmed by famed director Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth). Del Toro is collaborating with David Eick, the executive producer for Battlestar Galactica. Comic book legends Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb, who also currently heads Marvel TV, will also executive produce the new series.

Incredible Hulk 1980's

Growing up in the 80’s, I still remember how thrilled I was when I first saw the original Incredible Hulk live-action series on TV. Dull when compared to present-day CGI and other special effects technology, the original series nevertheless embodied the resourcefulness of that era. Instead of stop-motion or computer generated images, young Hulk fans in those days had Lou Ferrigno giving life to one of the most enduring characters in the history of Marvel Comics.

Well, the wait is over for lifelong fans of the Hulk. The new series is the first live-action television project from Marvel after it was bought out by Disney at the end of 2009. Many storyline aspects of the latest television adaptation of the Incredible Hulk will be based on the original live-action series and other previous animated incarnations of the raging green monster. Sources say that del Torro’s take on the Hulk will be basically a fresh retelling of the origins of Bruce Banner and his savage alter ego. But unlike other previous screen appearances of the Hulk, the new series will feature the character using a combination of prosthetics, CGI and puppet manipulation techniques.

The new Incredible Hulk TV series will be premiering on ABC and will be aired some time after The Avengers movie hits theaters in 2012.

  1. I like The Incredible Hulk New series pliot, and a idea to use a younger Bruce Banner too. They should cast first lead as younger Bruce Banner in the New Hulk Tv Show, is Edward Norton as First lead,second runner up is Danile Radcliffe from Harry potter movie. another thing I like is that they will use mixture of CGI,Prosthetics, and Puppetry.

  2. I heard about they making another Hulk Film Sequel to 2008 with Edward Norton in the film. Its going to be maybe better than the Hulk New Television Series coming in 2012.

  3. Marvel television and ABC owns The Incredible Hulk Tv Series and it might not be as Good as Edward Norton playing the charcter Bruce Banner. Its base on the comic Book. IF They could use Edward Norton in the New Hulk Tv Series, It will be as good as the Avengers 2012. Because its going to be base on The Avengers 2012 Movie coming in 2012.

  4. Edward Norton needs to be Cast in The Incredible Hulk Tv Show coming in 2012 and in The Big Screen too. If they have another man playing Edward Norton role as Bruce Banner will not work out at all.

  5. I wrote a Letter to Gillermo Del Toro about who they should cast as first Runner up,wrote to Edward Norton about the Hulk New Tv show, and about he should be involve in the Hulk New Tv Series.
