Blog@Newsarama Blog Archive HULK, CLOAK & DAGGER Targeted for TV
I'd be interested in a new hulk show. Love the original series with Bixby.
The Bixby show was terrible. It's a real tragedy that it's what most people knew of Hulk before the movies.
A new Hulk show with a CGI Hulk,She-Hulk,Abomination,Red Hulk, & Red She-Hulk.
Wonder Woman AND Hulk are coming back to television? Awesomeness.
Hey look! Loeb is involved!
Pass. There's a reason he was fired by NBC.
Cloak and Dagger targeted at ABC Family? These are the same characters that were kidnapped and experimented on by a drug cartel and now spend their time having one of the two essentially consume criminals to feed to the monster in the dimension he's a living portal to, right?
Unless ABC Family runs darker stuff than I was aware of, it'll have to be a little cleaned up.
I'm curious how they will do the hulk. Live actor or CGI? CGI might happen as marvel still has the models from the movie they did.
The original Incredible Hulk with Bill Bixby was a pretty bad show.You had to sit there and watch it for 55 minutes before the Hulk would actually show up for the last couple of minutes.
I also didn't care for those 1970's/ 1980's super hero shows. like the hulk,million dollar man,wonder woman.
The Hulk would make several appearances in each episode.
Loved them all.

Hulk just can't succeed on the big screen, so they'll try on the small screen. Whatever.
I have zero interest in Cloak and Dagger.
They have Del Toro on board, it could turn out well.
Sorry to bump this, but, who do you guys should be the modern Bill Bixby? Sucks that they're going with a 20-something, because I think Tim Daly would be ideal to play Banner. Plus, he works for ABC anyway.
10 or 15 years ago maybe. Now he's too old, even if they weren't going for a Gen-Y aged Banner.
Yet another new Marvel show.
Bendis' AKA JESSICA JONES Set for ABC TV
Back before he was the top draw at Marvel, Brian Michael Bendis made a name for himself writing edgy crime fiction comics. When he went over to Marvel he continued the tradition with an adult-audience book called Alias, which introduced Jessica Jones to the superhero universe. Jones was a former superhero and Avenger, who had retired from that life to become a private investigator.
Now, according to Variety, the concept is fast-tracked as at TV series slated for Fall 2011 on ABC. Writer/producer Melissa Rosenberg is working to launch the show which has been retitled AKA Jessica Jones. Rosenberg is best known as the writer of the Twilight movies, but is also a writer producer on the awesome Dexter TV show.
Prior to the Disney acquisition, Marvel had aimed to develop the show with Bendis writing it. At that time they were calling it Alter Ego (since obviously they wanted to avoid confusion with the J.J. Abrams' series Alias which debuted just after the comic series). Bendis is involved with this new effort as a consultant.
According to Variety, the deal with Rosenberg's Tall Girls Prods. banner is not fully signed, but the deal is so firm that this will likely be the first live-action show we see from the Marvel Entertainment's new TV initiative.
Marvel's Jeph Loeb, Joe Quesada and Alan Fine are executive producers. 3 Arts Entertainment's Howard Klein is also an exec producer.
It'll be interesting to see if the show keeps the Marvel Universe as its back-drop. The initial story arc of Bendis' comic run had a conflicted Jones taking photos of Captain America during what appeared to be a booty call. Luke Cage was also a prominent figure in the book, as a some time boyfriend (they are married and have a child together in the current continuity). Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman) also shows up and was, in fact, the original model for the character.
