Guillermo Del Toro Confirms: Hulk TV Show Will Have No Relation To The Movies
While speaking to MTV, the Pacific Rim director offers up some interesting updates on the Hulk tv series. He also says that he has been given "licence" to do his own take on the Green Goliath..
Although Del Toro and producer David Eick are still awaiting an official green light to get to work on a final draft of the script, they are very busy with "three or four treatments with variations" and trying to figure out how to bring the Hulk to life on a small screen budget. Del Toro also name checks Jeff Loeb. Is he hinting that his version of the character is the one they will draw from? Could this Hulk be red? Ok, that's a stretch! But anything is possible.
"David Eick and I are hard at work," he assured us. "We've gone through a lot of iterations with the ABC project and we're very happy where we are right now. We're just waiting for the green light to go to pages."
Del Toro said that he has been given license by Marvel to do his own take on the Hulk mythology.
"There's so many things in the Hulk universe that's powerful strands of narrative," he said. "They know we are being faithful to those strands, and the movies have their own continuity."
There is much more in the video so be sure to watch. Some might think it's a shame that the show won't tie in to the current Marvel movie continuity but I think this is better. There have been many versions and takes on The Hulk in the comics over the years and this gives Del Toro a chance to put his own unique spin on things. I can't wait to see what he comes up with.
