Quite a surprise, considering the third movie incarnation of the Hulk has yet to debut with Mark Ruffalo as part of The Avengers.

I would hope at least the new series does a different spin on the Hulk and gives him a brain, a personality, and the ability to speak, unlike the Bill Bixby series and the two movies. (Yeah, I know Hulk spoke a few lines in Ang Lee's version but a "smarter" Hulk live action would be different and interesting.)

I'll watch it when it arrives because I'm incapable of not watching something like this, but frankly, I'm not excited. I'm all Hulked out, even before The Avengers.

Now, that Cloak and Dagger series the article mentioned, that interests me...

What would make a great Hulk movie or TV Series? The storyline that brought us the best personality of the Hulk. The one which would fit the bill of being brutal and intelligent and be an excellent character driven story.


The Green Scar.

there's also a rumor that some of the former LOST creators are working on a "fairy tale" show for ABC.

ABC passed on a Fables TV pilot last year.

Could this be a retooling of that idea?

You mean Joe Fixit in Las Vegas or the entire Peter David run, I'm sure. Green Scar is a terrible idea for a TV Series because it would easily cost a few million bucks an episode and would not bring in enough viewers.

The animated movie was perfectly serviceable and acceptable to your Green Scar needs.

You'd think that of all possible superheroes, the Hulk would be one of the least-applicable for a TV series given the effects involved. Something like a Daredevil series or (as noted) a Cloak and Dagger series would seem to work much better on the small screen. Cloak and Dagger have powers, sure, they're somewhat easier powers to translate on a smaller budget.

Green Scar could be something they save for a Week 5 or something, should the series make it that far. Adapting the Joe Fixit stories or the Peter David run would be really cool for the first few seasons.

I like the idea of a Hulk series. It's been too long since the original Bixby/Ferrigno series and lord knows there have been worse reboots. And with Marvel on hand, I'd love to see some nice cameos by lesser-known Marvel heroes like Moon Knight and Luke Cage.

Make it happen, ABC! You owe me after passing on the Fables series!

Good or bad, I will watch a Hulk series. Damn you Marvel.

As someone who has just about given up on the Marvel publishing arm I'm still excited to see what they do with this series. Cloak & Dagger could be interesting too, but I still think they should develop Heroes for Hire with Power Man and Iron Fist.

As a fan of the "Fables" comic book series I am disappointed we didn't get a network adaptation of it. I read the story on Entertainment Weekly yesterday and wondered why they didn't make the connect-the-dots from the "new" show to that. Of course it's early but my "fanboy attitude" is on and ready to dislike the "LOST" guy's take if it isn't actually "Fables" as I'm a huge Bill Willingham (creator of "Fables") fan and would like to see him profit and gain even more fame for such wonderful execution of a fantastic idea. But it *is* early and I would imagine that those guys are talented enough to put a cool spin on it even if it isn't quite "Fables."

edit: But as a "LOST" fan, I can't decide if I would want Josh Holloway to play Bigby Wolf or Jack. (I'm leaning towards Jack)

I expect the Hulk show to be done after Avengers or as a prequel to Avengers. A season showing where Bruce was from Incredible Hulk to where they meet up with him in Avengers. If they use it or not, I want some guest stars. I do not want it to be Ross and the military as the only villains. You can maybe get away with that in the first season, but not for a long run. Hell, Stan was smart enough to have the FF appear in the first few issues of Hulk. I would like to see be sorta like Smallville just with better writers and no constraints. A show where you can throw in some superhero characters as regular characters.

I just want a good live action Marvel show. Cloak and Dagger is good idea, but I can't see them lasting to long as a series unless they do shove guest stars like DD, Iron Fist, Luke and others just to give it some legs. Also, who is their big bad, random street criminals? If its Kingpin then they do a lot with them.

Actually Cloak & Dagger could be a good show that doesn't need guest superheroes.
Mostly because you can do intricate and solid stories about day to day crime and how they deal with it.
You can make it gritty and keep it grounded without having to get too many costumed people in there.
Eventually you can do like Smallville did and hint at a bigger world where you have Luke Cage, DareDevil etc walk by (or be hinted at)

A Hulk show would need big explosions and such, unless you make it like the original show-more about Banner than the Hulk.

I liked the AV Club's take on the matter:

    The recent gamma-ray explosion that sent our television executives hurtling backward through time to the 1970s continues to have residual shocks, with Deadline now reporting that ABC will mount a new live-action TV version of The Incredible Hulk to go with those previously announced reboots of Wonder Woman, CHiPs, and Carter-era malaise. It’s the first project for Disney’s new Marvel TV division under the direction of Heroes/Smallville writer-producer Jeph Loeb, and the first small-screen live-action take on the character since Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno shared a pair of pants from 1978 to 1982.

    The concept of original television was last seen hitchhiking along a mountain highway while a pensive piano piece played in the background.



P.S.: Am I the only one excited about the possibility of a "Moon Knight" series?

Melody apparently changed from the little white American girl into a black British girl who was Amy and Rory's BFF who got them together. Ok? Minus that I thought the companion line-up was a brilliant.
