The Hulk may be returning to the small screen.
Marvel and ABC are said to be in the very early stages of development on a new live-action TV series based on the popular Marvel Comics comic book series The Incredible Hulk.
There is no writer on board yet with search underway. Marvel, which was acquired by ABC parent Disney last year for $4 billion, started a major push in TV in June with the launch of Marvel Television whose goal was to adapt Marvel characters and stories to the small screen. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb (Smallville) and his team quickly zeroed in on The Hulk, with rumors of a potential Hulk live-action series first surfacing in mid-summer.
The Hulk marks the second major comic book character to get a primetime treatment for next season, following on WB and DC Comics’ announcement of development of a Wonder Woman series (see article here) with David E. Kelley (“Boston Legal”).
