The Hulk becomes ABC series

Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) and David Eick (Battlestar Galactica) are creating a new TV series for The Hulk for Marvel TV and ABC Studios. It is del Toro’s first TV project (he previously had a first look deal with 20th TV, which apparently didn’t pan out), for which he will share story and created by credits with Eick, who will write the screenplay. Both will exec produce, with del Toro also directing if his schedule permits. Launch of the series is slated to occur after The Avengers (which features the Hulk) is released in theaters in July 2012, although it does not seem as if there will be a direct tie in, especially since they are aiming for a younger Bruce Banner. This Hulk will also not be 100% CGI, but a combination of CGI, prosthetics, and puppetry.
