It seems you can't keep a good monster down... Work continues on Guillermo del Toro's upcoming TV adaptation of Marvel Comics' The Incredible Hulk. After the lukewarm reception to Ang Lee's Hulk and the Incredible sequel/relaunch film, have audiences finally had enough of the not-so-jolly green giant? Not if Del Toro and creator Stan Lee have anything to say about it. Find out what I learned from both men in an exclusive video interview after the jump
For those few unfortunate souls out there who are unfamiliar with the long-running Marvel comic book, here's the basic gist...
Caught in a blast of gamma radiation, brilliant scientist Bruce Banner is cursed to transform in times of stress into the living engine of destruction known as The Incredible Hulk. The Hulk was created by Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1 in May of 1962. He was later featured in a well-regarded 1970s TV show starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, as well as two feature fims. He'll again appear on screen next summer in Joss Whedon's The Avengers. 'Nuff said.
