There may be plans for both a TV series and film for the Hulk according to TV’s first Hulk Lou Ferrigno!
In an exclusive interview with Lou Ferrigno at the Wizard World Comic Con, Lou Ferrigno discussed the evolution of the Hulk from film to television. After discussing his opinion of the Hulks portrayed on the big screen, I asked about his opinion of the Hulk coming back to television and who his choice would be. This is when he revealed that a TV series is coming in addition to a film in the works.
So if there were to be another TV series today and they were going to have a live action portrayal, who do you think would be today’s Hulk?
Well to tell you the truth they plan to do a TV series someday and it will probably be CGI, I don’t think you’ll ever see a human Hulk again. Because with the technology people would rather see something that is a little more animated like CGI.
Do you know who is planning on doing the series, which studios?
That’s a long way from now because I think down the road, I think in another year, they’re going to film a solo Hulk movie. But I think the series can happen if they finish doing the Avengers or the Hulk movie, that’s my guess for now.
Originally we heard that Guillermo Del Toro was attached to a television series which was said to be scrapped and instead take the form of another feature film (ScreenRant). According to Lou Ferrigno, the TV series is still on the table, along with the feature film which he says will begin film a year from now. The filming schedule falls right in line for Marvel’s Phase 3.
While you may be excited about the news of a television series, I would limit your excitement to the news of the announcement only and don’t hold your breath for a release date. It may be on the table but even Lou stated that it is a long way from now.
