With all of the talk about Whedon’s Marvel deal involving movies and TV series, we haven’t heard much at all about del Toro’s Hulk TV series. Some people were wondering if it was still going to happen given the Whedon deal, but it sounds like it’s still on the way. del Toro explained to Shock Til’ You Drop that they’re just waiting on an unnamed writer:
Right now all I know is the official word I was given is that there’s a writer they want. They are very interested in me meeting with him. He’s very, very busy. The official word is we are holding, but I don’t know… After Avengers having the success it had, perhaps the fate of the project may change. Right now officially what I know – and I’m not hiding anything off the record or anything – is that we were told we were waiting for this writer, and we were going to do it with him.
Honestly, with Whedon’s series existing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; if they can’t figure out a way for Hulk to exist there too, they shouldn’t do it.
