Collider.com has posted a new interview with Guillermo del Toro, with another status update on the long-developing Hulk TV project:
“I had one meeting with Marvel after Avengers and we had a very, very good chat,” del Toro said. “We have a writer that we want to bring on board, a very, very concrete name. I can’t reveal it, but we want to wait for that writer. It’s a writer who is otherwise engaged. So right now we are in a holding pattern until that writer becomes free. Then we’re going to do a new draft of the script.”
This is nearly identical to some quotes that were said a few weeks ago to MTV, with regards to the “particular writer.”
Today, news came out that Joss Whedon is developing a TV series for Marvel… could this be the writer they were waiting for?
Either way, the soonest we’ll see a Hulk TV show now – if we ever get one at all – would be Fall 2013. Still, possibly good to know it’s not all dead (yet).
