Marvel Talks 'Incredible Hulk' Movie In Light Of 'Avengers' Success
The Incredible Hulk has been done a few times before, first with Bill Bixby as Dr. David Bruce Banner and Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk in the television series, and again with Edward Norton as Banner in the 2008 film in which Ferrigno reprised the voice of the CGI Hulk. Now, however, The Incredible Hulk may be done again, in light of the success of Mark Ruffalo's character in The Avengers, also starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
It is being said that Mark Ruffalo's Hulk is stealing the entire Avengers show. Guillermo del Toro already announced a Hulk television adaptation, and Marvel's President of Consumer Products, Paul Glitter, is getting onboard, according to ScreenRant.com, via Forbes.
Glitter announced that Marvel will follow the television production with a 2015 feature film. "His sales are up in a major way," Glitter said of the Hulk. "We repositioned him from where he was always misunderstood to now depicting him in a more heroic and aspirational manner."
The Avengers took top spot at this weekend's box office with a record-breaking $200.3 million.
