Hulk Is Waiting For A Particular Writer

hulk307 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).

    How long will the new writer will be free to rewrite the pilot script? January and Febraury is time of the year were all the pilots get greenlight.

  2. Michael McDonnell says:

    At this point the show has a excellent chance at being canned if they can’t fit a CGI Hulk on a TV budget and schedule, if they keep holding out for the new writer the show will not be made.

    Del Toro updates on Hulk.
    “Right now all I know is the official word I was given is that there’s a writer they want. They are very interested in me meeting with him. He’s very, very busy. The official word is we are holding, but I don’t know… After Avengers having the success it had, perhaps the fate of the project may change. Right now officially what I know – and I’m not hiding anything off the record or anything – is that we were told we were waiting for this writer, and we were going to do it with him”.

    Avengers effects supervisor on the difficulties on bringing the Hulk to television.
    “I think we’d have to have a lot of Banner. You know I think from beginning to end we got much faster at doing shots. We learned a lot about the process and about how to light him and how to make him look good. One of the things that was interesting was when we started off we kind of took our typical approach of really art directing the lighting, like rim, rim, rim, you know super stylized. And he really looked fake and kind of popped out. And what we found is that we ended up having to kind of flatten out his lighting to get him to sit in there with the rest of the Avengers. So I think after learning things like that, you know we could – if you’re talking about a TV schedule and how fast you need to turn around production, it would be a matter of, you know trying to build off everything we did for the movie and then, you know get him in there, get him lit. You wouldn’t have time to do the – you know all the really detailed shape, you know per frame corrections that we do”.

    They say he’s supposed to meet the new writer in the coming weeks.

  6. Michael McDonnell says:

    By way things are going now it maybe we have to wait another year for the show.

  7. Michael McDonnell says:

    Now the new writer hasn’t come and Agents Of Shield has gone to series so the Hulk maybe dead.

  8. Michael McDonnell says:

    Well They shelved the show after the success of The Avengers.
