Looks like Wonder Woman may have some competition when she makes her way back to the small screen. Following recent reports that the Amazing Amazon is returning to TV comes the news that ABC is working on a series about "The Incredible Hulk."
According to Deadline.com, the show starring the big green monster is one of several superhero-oriented shows that Marvel Television has pitched to ABC. No actors are yet attached to the live-action project about physicist Bruce Banner, who transforms into the Hulk when angry.
As comic book fans know, this isn't the first time the character has gotten the screen treatment.
Besides CBS's popular 1978-82 "Incredible Hulk" TV series featuring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, there have also been two "Hulk" films – a 2003 version starring Eric Bana and a 2008 reboot with Edward Norton in the title role. Mark Ruffalo will also go green for Marvel's upcoming "The Avengers" superhero-ensemble flick.
Abc working on incredible hulk tv series.. He-he-he :)
I think the incredible hulk tv show might be a good idea because I wrote Del Toro a Letter about a actor they should cast is from Harry potter movie. For Bruce Banner is Danile Radcliffe as the lead for new Hulk Tv show.
Danile Radcliffe might be right for The role as Bruce Banner in new Hulk tv show radcilffe plays in harry potter.
Don t re-booted the new hulk tv show, because Edward Norton was in a re-boot movie in the hulk second movie based on the tv series, non sequel to the Ang Lee hulk. Edward Norton is the only actor that can play Bruce Banner than any other actor out their, like Bill Bixby.
I heard they making another hulk tv show, this time it is mixture of pupperty and prosthecis and cgi. Nothing like the orignal hulk tv show in 70s. But a new bruce banner in his mid twenties, they should cast Edward Norton beside other actor because he looks like in his mid twenties.
Finally there making the incredible hulk tv series again but the only problem is that it will be on ABC (which the channel was bought by disney)
Bring back The Fall Guy and 6 Million Dollar Man. Lee Majors rules, and would be better 2 watch than all the reality krap that is currently on.
Thanks for the warning..ill stay far away from it. Dont you guys at ABC have a clue (ie: creativity)
I would like to see a Hulk show again only if they realy do it right, have him talk and fight other super powered people(heros & villians)...Also one of the former CHIPS stars is in jail for stealing money from investors
This show is really a stupid idea. After seeing this character in two major motion picture with massive production values and state-of-the-art cgi, nobody is going to watch a cheaper, episodic version. You can go from the George Reeves playing Superman on TV to Chris Reeve flying through the air in theaters, but you can't go in the opposite direction. The fact is, the original Hulk TV series with Bixby and Ferrigno was pretty cheesy by today's standards. Between that show and the Six Million Dollar Man, slow motion sequences just don't cut it anymore, and the CGI can't be nearly as good as what we got used to and even criticized in the feature film versions.
Going by Hawaii-5-0 the Hulk project anew is a bad idea.
While they're at it they can Re-Tool the show "Fridays" with Melanie Chartoff, and Michael Richards. It would be like Ray Romano being re-tooled to play the part of "Fish". God Bless Abe Vigoda.
Um abc shouldn't be trying to revamp a dead sitcom from the 70's when they have a visually and comparitivly better 80's mini series V that they were supposed to release the second season of next month but have pushed back to january which will only lead to it being cancelled due to noone remembering it from nine months prior
They are probably thinking of doing because they can get the rights easily (or may already have the rights). Instead of negotiating for rights for another property, they will just use one they already have. That my friends is how decisions are made.
Bring back Howdy Doody!! He can be a cyborg/Asgardian god hybrid, with an adamantium coating, plasma beam generators in his guns, and an atomic powered hat!. Are you listening to yourselves??? My God what’s next? Next there will be singing and dancing shows, featuring stars and ridiculous stuff like that...oh, wait, there are shows like that. Sigh…
Can the networks not think of some really good new shows? Instead they do a 'remake" of TV that was on twenty years ago and remaking movies. Get real, get some brain flow going with creativity and do something new for a change.
Yeah, maybe some shows about funny animal tricks, or maybe shows with people singing each week, then get nothing out of it. Or maybe have a show about a bunch of people stuck on an island for years, and have everyone like it even though it is mindless. OR EVEN, have 1001 cooking shows, with people making the same thing over and over!!! YES!!
If this series is remake, not only will it be a slap in the face to EP Kenneth Johnson, but it will be nails in the coffins of Bill Bixby and John Colvin (Mr. McGee)'s legacies, and to all of the fans who hold the 70's series in such high regard! Get a life ABC – get something new and ORIGINAL!
I think they should make an Ironman tv show but focus more on Starks darkside like all the womanizing and him bein a drunk lol...
...oh wait. they already made a movie like that!! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Not again. Stop with the remakes and bring back creativity in Hollywood for a change. Sigh.
Danny Trejo from "Machete" can be Ponch and carry a big-ass knife lmao
Maybe the Hulk will actually speak and use articulated hand held weapons?.. I know, I know.. Stupid and far fetched. Never could happen. Maybe he'll grow a really unwarrented beard like Aquaman?.. Unlikely Lou Ferringno will make a cameo at some point either. Maybe Dr. Banner will have a really cute puppy as a traveling companion?.. The potential for this to be really,really bad is staggering.
Please don't re-boot Hulk for tv. It would be bad face for the original tv series from the 70s which I loved. Just because Hawaii 5-0 was remade, doesn't make every tv show re-done. You've already had your superhero series ie. Buffy Vampire Slayer, Heroes, Blade, etc. TV doesn't need another superhero series...they got the re-boot movie coming out for god's sake. Do a CHiPs remake with a little comedy in it. Make Ponch fresh off the border! LOL!
How about starting the old 90s x-men cartoon over after the final episode and keep it going?
I hope they keep the old music and cheesy sound effects.
SORRY ABOUT THE TYPO.....THE LAYWERS WERE TALKING TO ME.
HOW ABOUT BRINGING BACK CHIPS!!!!!!!!!!????????!!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY PEOPLE BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bring back a show about two motorcycle cops, who let most people off, and have unrealistic adventures, involving women, crime, women, parties, women...NOT. DUMBBBBBBBBB show!
HOW CHIPS PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!?????!!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok I agree with some comments others I don't . Bit sometimes I do have to point out stupidity .. Please excuse the errors in spelling as I am typing on a black berry. But the girl who never dies "clair bennit" real name "
Hayden Panettiere" is not dead u Idiot! She has not killed her self and was just seen in public a month ago. And I am pretty sure she woukd not kill her self because
JEPH LOEB was an internet bullyy
If ABC does a Hulk series, how about giving credit where credit is due: To the movie; The Amazing Colossal Man (1957), as well as Frankenstein, Jekyll and Hyde, and The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961).
Ronnie Coleman for the next black hulk.....
For @oh jeezz "I even read it in 'Comic-book guy's' voice". Reading things in a voice...hmmm...very interesting. NOT TO ME, but very interesting.
Please, please, PLEASE do not post in ALL-CAPS. It is stupid and hard to read. Sheesh.
Why the Hulk? There are so many better comic book characters that could make far more interesting television shows than the Hulk. It's been done, try something new.
ditto! Most boring "super hero" ever. Frankenstein called and he wants his shtick back.
ITS BETTER COMPARED TO DR JECKYL AND MR HYDE THAN DR FRANKENSTEIN YOU NERD
Billy Bixby has played the best "Banner" EVER!! – nuff said
GOOGLE GREG LAND TRACES FOR SOME LOLS
So let me get this straight..you are writing a story about a reboot of the Hulk, and you show a comic book picture of Skaar, the son of the Hulk??? Umm...nitwit?
That has got to be the nerdiest comment I have ever read. I even read it in 'Comic-book guy's' voice.
ummmm how can you tell all greens look alike
My My, @plinko..how racist of you.
THEY ARE GOING TO PUT JEPH LOEB IN CHARGE OF THIS SO YOU NO ITS GOING TO BE REALLY BAD LIKE HIS HULK COMICS
Maybe they'll put Greg Land in charge and it'll be 24 but Jack Bauer will have his skin digitally turned green.
I SWEAR IF ANY OF YOU INTERNET NERDS TRY TO DEFEND JEPH LOEB ON THIS FORUM YOU HAVE TO JUSTIFY THE ULTIMATES 3 TO ME AND EXPLAIN TO ME HOW THAT IS POSSIBLE GOOD ALSO JEPH LOEB IS THE REASON HEROS GOT CANCELLED HE MADE THE SHOW SO BAD THAT THE GIRL WHO NEVER DIES KILLED HERSELF IN REAL LIFE CUZ JEPH LOEB WAS AN INTERNET BULLY TO HER AND MADE FUN OFHER
What girl are you referring to? Hayden Panettiere? If so you are very out of touch. Check IMDB and you will see that she's scheduled to be in Scream 4 as well as the remake of The Black Hole.
Cheefsfury... You sound like someone who doesn't leave the basement. Plays endless hours of World of Warcraft or something.
MY WORLD OF WARCRAFT ACCOUNT GOT BANNED BECUASE THE FATTY SWEATY INTERNET NERDS COUDLNT TAKE ME POINTING OUT HOW FAT THEY WERE AND I DONT LIVE IN A BASEMENT THIS PLACE IS A FLOOD ZONE AND SHE DIED I SAW HER DEAD ON HEROS WHEN SYLAR DID SOMETHING TO HER
This is a HORRIBLE IDEA. Dear ABC: Cut the crap.
