According to Heat Vision, Marvel and ABC are developing a live-action television revival of "The Incredible Hulk," a property that's considered a top priority at Marvel Television. The division is headed up by comic book scribe and former "Heroes" writer Jeph Loeb, who just recently concluded a lengthy "Hulk" arc for Marvel Comics.
Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno famously starred in the previous "Hulk" adaptation that aired on CBS from 1978 through 1982. Indeed, this version was so popular that Ruffalo himself recently said that he's channeling Bixby's performance for his own upcoming portrayal of tragic scientist Bruce Banner.
"The Incredible Hulk" is considered one of two top priorities for Marvel Television, with the other being a "Cloak and Dagger" series developed for ABC Family. Both ABC and Marvel are owned by the Walt Disney Company.
Beyond "Hulk" and "Cloak and Dagger," Marvel is reportedly considering the following properties for television adaptations: "Heroes for Hire," "The Eternals," "Agents of Atlas," "Moon Knight," "Ka-Zar," "Daughters of the Dragon" and "The Punisher."
The street-level television projects are hardly surprising for those of you who participated in our Marvel TV poll last month, but the inclusion of "The Eternals," "Agents of Atlas" and even "Hulk" certainly live up to Loeb's previous remarks that there are "some pretty big surprises" on the way. Keep it locked into Splash Page as we learn more about the "Hulk," "Cloak and Dagger" and other Marvel television projects.
