Maybe they'll do something like Bruce Jones run on the comic (Which was basically the TV show with some modern sensibilities) which inspired part of the second film.

I would give it a shot. The original show was great, and I'm not opposed to a new version. I think Hulk is well suited 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).
I'd watch that. Occasional guest spot by Matt Murdock, maybe? Hmm? Anyone?

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

Marvel currently doesn't have film/TV rights to Daredevil (those being held hostage, like those of the FF and the X-Men, by Fox), so I wouldn't count on seeing Matt Murdock turn up in any capacity. Which is a shame: Daredevil cries out for an adult, sophisticated TV adaptation.

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

The Daredevil rights should revert back to Marvel pretty soon if Fox doesn't make use of them.

I'm glad Marvel is bringing The Punisher to cable TV. I think that's a good place for the character to flourish.

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

That list is very exciting (with the usual caveat of "if done well"). I wonder how many of them will ever make it out of the proposal stage, however. Heroes for Hire is the one that interests me the most, although I wonder what impact (if any) this has on the ventured Luke Cage film. I have a hard time seeing Hulk work as a weekly series (what I've seen of the old show has been pretty cheesy), and Ka-Zar would probably exhaust its premise in short order. I also find it strange that ABC Family would want Cloak and Dagger--I don't see their characters lending themselves to family-safe far (not to mention they would have to--tragically--tone down Dagger's costume).

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

That's a misconception that's been going around the 'net since this story broke.

ABC Family is not a kids-safe channel. They routinely show programs and movies rated TV-PG to TV-14. They're called "ABC Family" because they have different shows for different family members. A Cloak & Dagger series could easily be a TV-14 series or at least TV-PG.

If they tone down Dagger's costume, it probably won't be because it may offend kids but because someone thought it was silly or impractical for a woman to be dressed like that in real life, IMO...

I hope whoever is doing the Hulk TV series has the sense to incorporate the Rick Jones character. I think it was a big mistake not to include him in either movie. He could add some much-needed comic relief and be a good audience identification character.
I agree with this. Jones is also vital to the Hulk's character, as the Hulk was created by Banner saving the kid from his own stupidity. The essence of Hulk's origin is that no good deed goes unpunished.

Yeah, the heroic act of Banner and the survivor's guilt of Rick are some interesting character traits that have been very unexplored in other media until now. The only other adaptation I can recall Rick Jones being used in was the 1980s animated series.

Either that, or the resolution of the Kirby Estate v. Marvel/Disney "lawsuit".

What do I mean? I believe it is all part of the pretty devious plan Disney came up with when they announced they were acquiring Marvel over a year ago. They wanted it all and even said so. Yet how could they get it all if Fox and Sony had the rights to the biggest draws of Marvel's inventory of characters? This is what led to the Kirby Estate announcing their lawsuit about a week or so after Disney announced they were buying Marvel, and their "claim" on Spider-Man in particular. Disney enlisted the Kirby's in a little bit of legal theater.

You see, all the contracts that Marvel has signed over the years would be nullified and need renegotiation if there were now another party named to be equal owners of the properties in question. So if the Kirby's win, the contracts with Sony and Fox become worthless.

So all Disney/Marvel has to do is to capitulate to the Kirby's demands on the day the trial opens. They can't lose. They would still own a 50% share of the copyrights and all of the trademarks, so they could continue to publish all they want. But a couple of weeks after the trial, after all the contracts with Fox and Sony have been shredded, Disney will announce a deal with the Kirby's to buy their rights in perpetuity for a small nine figure sum. A deal that has actually already been made. A deal that was in place before Disney ever announced it was buying Marvel.

At least, that is how I see it. It all just reeks of a devious plot with underlying motives, a typical corporate move. And it would be funny if the only losers in the Kirby/Marvel lawsuit were Sony and Fox.

Re: The Incredible Hulk heading back to television

^I said that it was at the beginning and end of the post. But it all fits. And I could easily see Disney giving the Kirby's like $150M if that nets them the movie rights to Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. And much cheaper than buying them back from Sony and Fox.

ABC Family is not a kids-safe channel. They routinely show programs and movies rated TV-PG to TV-14. They're called "ABC Family" because they have different shows for different family members.
Actually the only reason they still have "Family" in the name is because, when The Family Channel's founder Pat Robertson sold it to Fox Kids Worldwide, the contract contained a clause requiring that any and all future owners keep "Family" in the channel's name. So it became Fox Family Channel, and then when Disney/ABC bought it, the best they could do to rebrand it as their own was to call it ABC Family. They've tried once or twice to get rid of the "Family" part -- they wanted to call it "XYZ" and then "ABCF" -- but the contract locks them into using it in perpetuity.

So it's really not a family-oriented channel anymore. It mainly aims for college students and young women.

^^ That seems awfully silly, don't care that you show anything worthwhile as long as the channel has "Family" in the name.
