Marc Waid On Marvel's DAREDEVIL Netflix Series And An INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK Film

Marc Waid, the writer behind Marvel’s current Daredevil and Hulks comics, was also at Motor City Comic Con this weekend. He opened up about adaptations of the two characters he handles and discusses what he thinks Marvel should do with them.

Later this year, Marvel's Daredevil Netflix Series will begin filming, and this will be the first time we see a live-action Daredevil since Ben Affleck's movie almost a decade ago. Daredevil is currently being written in the comics by Marc Waid, who talked at Motor City Comic Con about the new show. “It’s in good hands,” he said. “I don’t want to overstate, but I’ve been asked to be involved on some level.” It may be interesting to see what kind of involvement he will have on the show. Perhaps a writer for a few episodes or a producer. We don't yet know who will be cast as the hero himself, but expect some casting pretty soon. Also from Marc Waid is a Hulk comic series that ended a while ago. It's called Indestructible Hulk, and follows Bruce Banner as he works for S.H.I.E.L.D. on special projects while using the Hulk for... well, smashing. But keeping in mind the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe plot twist, the idea of a film with this plot may not exactly work, unless Marvel finds a way to re-build the organization in the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or Captain America 3. When asked if he thinks the next Hulk movie would be based on his comic run, he says: “There’s rumors, sadly that’s all I know. The thing about Marvel publishing, is that Marvel Studios has a hands-off approach with it — which is great. The Marvel films don’t dictate how the stories go in the comics, they realize that the tail shouldn’t wag the dog. But, Marvel publishing is sometimes the last people to know what they do in the movies.” It would certainly be interesting if Marvel chooses to use this story-line for the next Hulk movie, especially since there is still the Planet Hulk story-line that could possibly be adapted. Which of the two would you like to see as the basis for the Hulk sequel, or is there another story? Sound off below.

didn't know wais was involved in the upcomin DD, that's very good news
Tuuralihn - 5/20/2014, 5:11 AM
I'd rather have Planet Hulk than Indestructible. Planet would give us the opportunity for an epic Guardians of the Galaxy/Hulk/Avengers meet.

great find @Abary ;) get a thumbsup from me

I would love to see indestructible hulk done on the big screen. Sadly I've only read the first comic of that series (comixology free comic day) but I really felt the approach to it was pretty neat. Hulk/Banner working for Shield while hunting down all of these gamma baddies. It would kind of have the same approach as Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Seeing that shield is "not so protective" anymore I wonder how they could still adapt it?
McNyagano - 5/20/2014, 5:28 AM
He's involved?! [frick] yeah!

Great work Abary.

"The Marvel films don’t dictate how the stories go in the comics"


The joke of the century.
MrSotoMan - 5/20/2014, 5:31 AM
I don't think another Hulk movie is coming.

I keep hoping, but the more I think about it, the less I am keen to believe it just won't happen.
sKeemAn - 5/20/2014, 5:32 AM
Its great to hear actual comic writers involved with Marvel tv projects.
charlie2094 - 5/20/2014, 5:33 AM
Great to know that he's involved!

Rather they took more cues from Bendis' run, but Waid's is brilliant too, a mesh of them would be perfect
AlphaMasterFlex - 5/20/2014, 5:39 AM
Planet Hulk!!!!!
JoJo1982 - 5/20/2014, 5:45 AM
Sounds great

I'm pretty excited to see the look of Daredevil tv show(well I wanna see how Hell's Kitchen will look)
marvelstudios - 5/20/2014, 5:45 AM
If they ever make another Hulk movie I really hope its called The Incredible Hulk 2 and not The Indestructible Hulk. Unless its a Planet Hulk movie.
bobevanz - 5/20/2014, 5:54 AM
No planet hulk! Red hulk or absorbing man!
bobevanz - 5/20/2014, 5:57 AM
I hate planet hulk lol, except for the beginning and end idk why. Hulk losing his wife and baby was epic shit tho, but I don't want anything like a john carter type movie ever again, especially not with the GA favorite avenger
batmanvsuperman - 5/20/2014, 5:58 AM
Cool bean's
yossarian - 5/20/2014, 6:04 AM
Daredevil casting news now goddamnit.
ThePowerCosmic - 5/20/2014, 6:11 AM
Yes! Get Waid on the DD series.

His run with Samnee is incredible!
OpticBlastWins - 5/20/2014, 6:17 AM
We need the leader movie before planet hulk.. if you want to see planet hulk than buy or rent the animated movie. Still might be on netflix. Planet Hulk is interesting but would not fit into the MCU very easily. Makes way more sense to do a leader/red hulk movie
dellamorte1872 - 5/20/2014, 6:21 AM
Said is prolly an executive producer. Idk I gotta go with PLANET HULK getting the Hulk off world I'm telling ya makes sense with THANOS and AVENGER 3 aif A2 a doesn't precede a planet hulk story a3 will I really honestly see it organically happening
dellamorte1872 - 5/20/2014, 6:22 AM
superotherside - 5/20/2014, 6:23 AM
Planet Hulk would be insanely awesome. I would love that for Incredible Hulk 2 and Avengers 3. It would also make sense with the name since Hulk is doing the "Avenging".
SpiderFraud - 5/20/2014, 6:29 AM
I hope DD is more like Miller/Bendis, but I do hope they take some things from Waid's run..mostly how Waid writes how DD utilizes his senses.
SuperCat - 5/20/2014, 6:38 AM
Another Hulk film!

TheRealRemyLebeau - 5/20/2014, 6:43 AM
Glad Marvel have their comicbook writers involved with their projects unlike dofp. This will be great for daredevil. ;)
TheRealRemyLebeau - 5/20/2014, 6:47 AM
Hell no to planet hulk. You don't skip storylines or villains like fox men. The Leader, Ross, Talbot and Absorbing Man for Incredible Hulk 2
Pedrito - 5/20/2014, 6:50 AM
I'm glad to hear Waid is involved. I hope Chris Samnee is too, somehow.

Planet Hulk only makes sense after Avengers 3 at this point. I've been skeptical about Planet Hulk, but if they make it look like Guardians of the Galaxy looks in the trailers, it could be quite amazing.
MightyZeus - 5/20/2014, 6:52 AM
Looking forward to Daredevil, glad he's involved. I'd really love a Hulk sequel. I think it would make a lot of money at the box office.
Enphlieuwince - 5/20/2014, 7:07 AM
SuperCat Lol! Impeccable gifs, Sir.
DEVLIN712 - 5/20/2014, 7:26 AM
I agree with 0mega, you need privileges Abary!
blackandyellow - 5/20/2014, 7:36 AM
Zac Efron for DD. Make it happen, Marvel.
yossarian - 5/20/2014, 7:41 AM
Dear Marvel,

Don't listen to B&Y.

Your Pal,

grif - 5/20/2014, 7:45 AM
when did they confirm another hulk movie would be made?
soforizo - 5/20/2014, 7:48 AM
Shit, I was hoping for some actual Hulk movie news. This isn't even a tease.
Gamera623 - 5/20/2014, 7:50 AM
Off all the MCU possibilties..Black Panther, Miss Marvel, Inhumans, Doctor Strange.....I want a sequel to The Incredible Hulk most.

Id prefer Indestructible Hulk personally. Planet Hulk was kind of lame.

Marvel isn't going to do a 2 hr CGI fest which is what Planet Hulk would be- there would also be pretty much no reason to have Mark Ruffalo then. So begging for Planet Hulk is pointless. If they take elements from that story and combine it with the GOTG and if at the end of the film Hulk and the Guardians head towards Earth to warn the Avengers of Thanos then yeah hell yeah sign me up.
MrSotoMan - 5/20/2014, 8:02 AM
Marvel isn't going to do a 2 hr CGI fest

Um....Guardians of The Galaxy.....
Um....The Avengers.....
Um....Iron Man 3....
Um.....need I [frick]ing go on.....???
aievilgenius - 5/20/2014, 8:03 AM
i think one way they'd be able to pull of a planet hulk and not having him come back to earth on a complete world breaker rampage trying to kill everyone would be to have bruce banner ride with the guardians to explore some space ish and then somehow he gets blown out their ship and lands on the red planet...blah blah blah, guardians find him after bug kills his babe he crushes him and returns home with the guardians pretty pissed off and when he gets home it'll be in a different avengers flick and some bad guy gets pummeled by extremely pissed off hulk...jus speculating

planet hulk was jus sweet...and a battle with beta ray like in the cartoon would be epic since they can't use the silver stud.
