Marvel and ABC Planning New Live Action Incredible Hulk Series

Deadline and The Live Feed have the news, announcing that Marvel and ABC are currently in very early stages of development of a live-action (most likely hour-long) series adaptation of the comic book character. The project is part of a push from Marvel to enter the TV realm, kicked off last summer with the launch of Marvel Television. Heroes exec producer Jeph Loeb is the head of the operation, and The Hulk was among two high priority projects they settled on.

This is good timing for ABC, whose sci-fi superhero drama No Ordinary Family premiered a couple of weeks ago to high ratings, but less so for Marvel, whose introduction of another Hulk could further diminish the established mythology of The Avengers universe. They’ve already suffered some setbacks with the recasting of Ruffalo and Don Cheadle (as War Machine), but those were unintended casualties. This, however, is a deliberate, calculated decision to produce a series based on one of their characters while an alternative big screen incarnation is simultaneously serving a separate franchise. The workaround for this would of course be to have Ruffalo reprise the role for the show, but that seems unlikely.
