Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

Wonder if this means that Hulk'll die in Avengers? Could that have factored into Norton's leaving? Because if Ruffalo's Hulk goes over well, why bet against even exploring a solo movie with him? And dueling continuities would be rather confusing, so maybe Hulk'll die on the big screen, leaving the series to do a whole other continuity?

Whedon certainly proved his willingness to off major characters in Serenity, after all... and what with Trek XI, everyone's talking up TWOK, but surely no one thinks Quinto's Spock is in any danger...

As much as this makes sense, I'll probably not bother with it. There's no topping Bill Bixby and I honestly would spend too much time thinking "That's not how Bill would have done it."
We know how Bixby would do it, he'd say "Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry." and then get beat up and thrown behind a bar where he transforms into the Hulk.

If you think that's the summation of Bixby's performance, then you weren't paying attention.

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

Eh? There'd be no possible way of avoiding knowledge of Damon's absence in Legacy, if that's what you mean... to me, "spoilers" implies something you could reasonably hope to miss so long as you don't read many reviews or watch trailers. I didn't see any Iron Man 2 trailers, for instance, so the suitcase suit was a total (if rather silly) surprise.

I was referring to something else. Since you were right about what Universal is planning on doing with the Bourne franchise, and you say that the Hulk could die in The Avengers.... Do you see where I'm going with this?

We all know Marvel will want to have a shocking and painful death that will cause ripples through the comic book world with such a beloved longtime character being killed off in The Avengers movie -- so Agent Coulson it is.

As for Hulk on TV, huh, where did that come from? I kinda wish they'd work on getting one really good Hulk movie before moving to the small screen (I don't dislike either previous, but neither came close to being classics) but I'll still be fascinated to check it out. More Hulk is good Hulk

Ruffalo was talking recently about possibly starring in a Hulk solo film after The Avengers, so the Hulk clearly isn't set to die in the film - unless there are rewrites to change that.

Heat Vision reports that Cloak and Dagger is also in development as an ABC Family series. From Heat Vision:

Marvel began narrowing it list of possible TV adaptations in May with a presentation on the Disney lot. Executives presented ABC suits with a list of titles they identified as possible series:

• Heroes for Hire (focusing on ex-con Luke Cage offering to take on bad guys for a price);
• The Eternals (a race of superpowered beings live amid humanity in secret, inspiring legends);
• Agents of Atlas, Alter Ego (private investigator Jessica Jones takes on cases involving superhumans);
• Moon Knight, the Red Hood (a low-rent criminal discovers a cloak that gives him superpowers);
• Ka-Zar (a Tarzan-type and his saber-toothed tiger must journey to the concrete jungle to seek justice);
• Daughters of the Dragon (a dynamic female duo, one with a bionic arm and the other a granddaughter of a samurai, open a private-detective agency); and
• The Punisher (one man wages a war on crime; already adapted as two feature films).

Ironically, Cloak and Dagger wasn’t on the list. (Hulk was.) Although the focus appears to be on Hulk and Cloak and Dagger, Punisher also has been selected from the herd and is eyed as a cable play, but that is even further away. Marvel’s TV division wants to take things slow, according to insiders, focusing on one or two shows, making sure they are the best they can be and establishing a quality brand before moving forward.

Marvel is in the middle of establishing a shared universe with its movies (the pics and the characters form one big story), but it’s unknown whether the studio will undertake a similar path with TV. Also unknown is whether there would be a connection between the film world and TV world.

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

I can see Luke Cage and Jessica Jones being good fits for television (as would the Punisher from a logistics and expense standpoint, though I'd never watch it), but the Hulk is an odd choice. Even the action in the Bixby/Ferrigno series, which was toned way, way down from the comics, was hugely expensive on a TV budget. And these days there'd be more of an expectation to see a CGI Hulk tossing tanks around, and it would either be damned expensive or damned cheesy-looking, or both.

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

Guillermo del Toro and David Eick will reportedly be pitching a take for the Hulk series.

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

So Marvel in May pitched the original Heroes for Hire (with Luke Cage) and then the reboot Heroes for Hire(with Misty & Colleen) and called it Daughters of the Dragon?

I think it could have made more sense to combine the two. Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Misty, and Colleen would have been the regulars.

Jessica Jones could have been a recurring character as well as a source of information(as a reporter).
