ABC announced its upcoming 2012-2013 fall schedule today, and with it came some exciting news for Marvel's The Avengers fans. The proposed The Incredible Hulk TV series reboot, which we first heard about way back in November of 2010, is still in development.
Hulk in development for 2013
Guillermo del Toro is attached to this hour long drama as a producer, and its been given a bump of enthusiasm by the Hulk's appearance in this summer's billion dollar movie Marvel's The Avengers.
This is what ABC president Paul Lee said while announcing the rest of ABC's impending slate.
"Hulk is in development. It wasn't going to be ready this season but we hope it's going to be ready for next season."
About other Marvel properties coming to ABC via the small screen, Lee had this to say.
"We're immensely proud to be a company with Marvel's The Avengers. We're going to continue to develop aggressively. We've got some in development, but none that I can talk about at this point."
Its too early to tell what this means for a third Hulk stand-alone film, and its highly unlikely that Mark Ruffalo will star in this small screen adaptation. ABC is owned by Walt Disney, the company behind Marvel Studios. A TV series based on The Punisher is also said to be in the works for ABC TV.
Would anyone frown at a Teen Hulk on ABC Family?
