The Incredible Hulk
Is The Incredible Hulk next in line for a TV reboot?
Marvel and ABC are developing a show to bring the angry green giant back to television, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The previous Hulk TV series, which starred Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, ran on CBS from 1978-1982. NBC also aired three TV movies with Bixby and Ferrigno reprising their roles in the late 1980s.

The news follows reports that David E. Kelley is developing a TV return for DC Comics character Wonder Woman.
The Incredible Hulk has twice been adapted for the big screen. Ang Lee's 2003 film, Hulk, underperformed at the box office, while its 2008 successor, The incredible Hulk, performed only slightly better. A sequel to the latter film is planned, with Mark Ruffalo replacing Edward Norton in the lead role. It is unclear if Marvel, whose films are creating a shared universe for its characters, will link the TV series to the films.
