ABC Developing ‘Hulk,’ Eying ‘Cloak and Dagger’ TV Series
While Mark Ruffalo is set to smash as the Hulk in Joss Whedon’s 2012 “The Avengers” movie and the Jade Giant is an important fixture in Disney XD’s new “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” animated series, it seems fans will have yet another outlet to catch their favorite gamma-powered hero before long. According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC and Marvel TV are currently developing a live-action Hulk series and eying characters like Cloak and Dagger at the behest of Marvel’s Executive Vice President, Head of Television Jeph Loeb.No time table has been announced for the Hulk TV series and it’s unclear whether the show will be tied to Marvel’s shared “Avengers” movie universe in any way, but THR emphasized that Marvel and ABC, which are both Disney companies, are trying to methodically foster brands rather than rush an overabundance of programming.
According to THR, ABC and Marvel are looking at a considerable list of possible TV franchises including “Heroes for Hire,” “The Eternals,” “Agents of Atlas,” “Alter Ego” (a renamed version of “Alias” starring Jessica Jones), “Moon Knight,” “The Red Hood,” “Ka-Zar,” “Daughters of the Dragon” (Misty Knight and seemingly the new Tarantula, Maria Vasquez).
The Punisher is also singled out as a potential cable series candidate, but I’m so dizzy thinking about the possibility of an “Atlas” live action show that I should probably just leave the speculation to you, dear readers.
