With the Green Goliath smashing bad guys in Joss Whedon’s mammoth hit “The Avengers”, it only stands to reason that the Hulk is getting lots of renewed interest. Marvel has all but confirmed that they’re still on tap to do a new “Hulk” movie in the coming years, and ABC has now told journos that they, too, are still in development with Guillermo del Toro’s “Hulk” TV show.
According to network President Paul Lee, the Del Toro-developed “Hulk” wasn’t quite ready to move beyond development in 2012, so it’ll have to wait for 2013 to move forward. The network, which is owned by Disney, which also owns Marvel, has all the incentive it needs to get a “Hulk” TV show out there — Whedon’s “The Avengers”, in which the Hulk plays a crucial part (not to mention his crowd-pleasing antics), is rolling in dough right now, and ABC would be wise to strike while the iron is still hot.
Lee says they’re not just working on a new “Hulk” show, but looking at turning other Avengers properties into TV shows as well. Adding:
We’re immensely proud to be a company with The Avengers. We’re going to continue to develop aggressively.
Well hell, then get to it, buddy. What’s the hold-up? If you can’t get the Hulk up and running soon, why not try some other properties first? And what’s the hold-up on that “Aka Jessica Jones” TV series?
After all, it’s not like Marvel has a shortage of characters to choose from…
