"Hulk" (2003)... Die "Hulk"-Comics wurden zuvor mehrfach fürs Fernsehen und fürs Kino verfilmt... Dann versuchte sich Regisseur Ang Lee (u.a. "Tiger & Dragon") an dem Stoff...
Doktor Bruce Banner, gespielt von Eric Bana (u.a. "Black Hawk Down") ist ein Atomphysiker, dessen Fachgebiet die Gamma-Bestrahlung ist. Eines Tages geschieht während eines seiner Experimente ein Unfall, und Bruce wird mit einer grossen Menge Gammastrahlen belastet. Die Folgen sind verheerend: Jedes Mal, wenn Bruce sich nun übermäßig ärgert oder nervös wird, verwandelt er sich in eine mächtige Kreatur - in Hulk. Hulk ist das genaue Gegenteil von Bruce: Hulk ist ein Superheld. Er ist riesengroß, grün und besitzt übernatürliche Kräfte, die sich ins Unermessliche steigern können...

FEARnet sprach mit Guillermo del Toro über die TV-Serie...
[...] Is Hulk still happening?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. We turned in the outline to ABC about four weeks ago. And then we did a rewrite for ABC on the outline, and now we are lining up the pages.
Is it safe to assume this will be a different Hulk than we've ever seen before?
I think so. Or we wouldn't be trying it. Actually, one of the points of this project early on with Marvel, was "We're going to do this thing different, and here's how. Are you interested?" And they were. [...]
[...] Guillermo del Toro, the mastermind behind Pan's Labyrinth and the Hellboy movie franchise, and Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick are finalizing a deal to create the new TV series version of The Hulk for ABC, which is being produced by Marvel TV and ABC Studios. It will mark Marvel’s first series project for ABC and ABC Studios since Disney's acquisition of Marvel last year and the launch of Marvel's TV division in June. It also marks del Toro's first TV project. Details of the premise are sketchy but I hear that the series will follow an origin story. In it, physicist Bruce Banner, whose alter ego is the green and raging Hulk, will be in his mid-twenties, less reactive and more energized as the world is still his oyster. Unlike the two Hulk movies, in which the monster was a pure CGI creation, the series will employ a mixture of prosthetics, puppetry and CGI. Del Toro and Eick will break the story for the pilot script together, sharing story and created by credit. Eick will write the script, with del Toro attached to direct subject to his availability. Del Toro will also oversee the designing of the Hulk character, which is expected to draw on previous comic book incarnations, as well as the original 1978-82 Incredible Hulk TV series, with a few wild tweaks on the old look. Because the project is still in its nascent stage and will require a lot of prep work, it won't be ready for next fall consideration. I hear that Marvel is looking to launch the series following the July 2012 release of The Avengers, which features the Hulk character, so the series will probably be targeted for fall 2012. [...]
The Incredible Hulk is muscling his way to primetime TV. ABC is in very early stages of development of a live-action series adaptation of the popular Marvel comic book character. There is no writer on board yet with search underway. Marvel, which was acquired by ABC parent Disney last year for $4 billion, started a major push in TV in June with the launch of Marvel Television whose goal was to adapt Marvel characters and stories to the small screen. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb (Smallville) and his team quickly zeroed in on The Hulk, with rumors of a potential Hulk live-action series first surfacing in mid-summer. [...]
In the two Incredible Hulk movies of the past decade, stars Edward Norton and Eric Bana played Bruce Banner but let the effects crew worry about the big green guy. In Marvel's upcoming The Avengers, though, Mark Ruffalo will actually play the Hulk: "I'm really excited. No one's ever played the Hulk exactly, they've always done CGI," he told us at last night's Launch of Farmhearts at Pure Yoga. "They're going to do the Avatar stop-action, stop-motion capture. So I'll actually play the Hulk. That'll be fun." But he's nearly as excited about playing Banner: "I really love the first TV version of it, the Bill Bixby one," Ruffalo told us. "I'm gonna shoot for that a little bit. He was an everyman in it. He's always on the run and trying to find love. It's really a sympathetic character, before he turns into the Hulk and fucks everything up." Also, if you needed one more reason to be excited for Avengers, Ruffalo tells he'll be playing history's first-ever 3-D Hulk: "I hope I don't bulge in anyone's face, that's all I have to say."
Capone von AICN sprach mit Edward Norton...
Capone: [...] Where are you with the future of either an AVENGERS film or another HULK film?
EN: I don't... Knowing you guys, you will probably have updates on that quicker than I will, so if you find out, call me! [Laughs] I actually don’t know. I’m not even sure deep inside the minds of Marvel how they are planning to string that stuff out, but I don’t think there is any if it is imminent, I don’t know.
Capone: Does it still hold interest for you, at least?
EN: Things like that to me are always completely dependent on what they make of it. You know what I mean? It’s like anything can be the crappy version of itself or the great version of itself and if it’s the great version of itself, then that’s one thing. If they don’t get it right, then I don’t know, then I think... A lot of it depends on what they come up with. [...]
Quint von AICN sprach mit Tim Blake Nelson aka Dr. Samuel Sterns, der vermutlich den Bösewicht in einem möglichen Sequel zu "Der unglaubliche Hulk" geben wird...
Quint: [...] what about a potential HULK sequel? Gale Anne Hurd’s been going around talking about how you might be The Leader and the main villain of the next one.
Tim Blake Nelson: That’s the plan. That’s what they tell me, but I don’t know when that’s happening or what the details are but I am eager to do it and I hear that’s in the works. I would tell you if I knew more, but I honestly don’t.
Quint: Yeah, but you haven’t played a comic-book villain yet right?
Tim Blake Nelson: No, but I had a great time doing HULK, so if they want me for HULK 2 I’m there, it certainly was the plan going into HULK 1. When I met with them they said this is where it’s headed so I’m eager to do it. [...]
MTV sprach mit Kevin Feige von Marvel...
Earlier this year, "The Incredible Hulk" director Louis Leterrier got the ball rolling with the coolest comic idea since the pencil, telling MTV News that he thought his green hero would make a perfect villain - a conflicted behemoth out to fight each and every one of Marvel’s greatest in "The Avengers." "Iron Man" scripters Hawk Ostby and Mark Fergus (who are in talks to potentially write another Marvel franchise) told us recently that they couldn’t agree more, saying they love nothing more than when "good guys have to fight each other." [...]
"Here’s the thing - it is all in the planning stages, but certainly if you look back to any number of ‘Hulk’ comics, or ‘Avengers’ comics, or ‘The Ultimates’ comics or the ‘Ultimate Avengers’ DVD that we released, it certainly makes a hell of a sequence," Feige said of a possible Hulk vs. Avengers battle, one which Leterrier set up perfectly with the end of his film with the scene depicting Tony Stark counseling a defeated General Ross.
In fact, Leterrier went so far as to call that shot the first scene of "The Avengers" when we chatted in June. For a number of reasons I detailed earlier, actually, it just makes TOO much sense - it wouldn’t necessarily require Norton (just a lot of CGI), it would be a viable threat to the already assembled group (which wouldn’t require an additional villain’s story), and it could dovetail nicely with a "Hulk 2" set-up (which Feige admitted in our chat was something they weren’t planning in the moment.)
So it’s gotta be, right?
For his part, Feige wouldn’t confirm or deny. But - he sure did seem excited.
"To have all of the Avengers going up against a green goliath?" he teased. "I think that would be very cool to see that on the screen." [...]
MTV sprach mit Edward Norton über Hulks ungewisse Zukunft...
"Incredible Hulk" star Edward Norton says Marvel Studios isn’t giving him any indication they want him to reprise his role as the publisher’s green goliath, whether in a solo sequel or team-up project.
"The minds of Marvel are sometimes opaque," Norton told MTV News. "I won’t say [they're] obtuse, but I don’t have any idea what they want to do."
Norton said he’s also been kept in the dark regarding any plans for him, in his role as Hulk’s alter-ego Bruce Banner, to appear in Marvel’s big team-up project, "The Avengers." The film, which is expected to feature The Hulk, Iron Man, Captain America and several other Marvel characters, is currently scheduled for a 2011 release.
"They’ve got this notion of collecting the Marvel characters," said Norton, who appeared a bit skeptical of Marvel’s ambitious plans for the project. "Who knows where they’ll go?"

[...] Marvel Studios' The Incredible Hulk (Universal) took another hard hit in its third weekend, dropping 58% to fifth place with $9.2 million. With a total box office take of $115.5 million, it doesn't look like it will surpass the U.S. box office showing of the previous Ang Lee movie, which means we might have seen the end of this superhero franchise for some time.

CS! berichtet über die US-Einspielergebnisse...
[...] In the second major battle of the month of June, Marvel Studios' second production The Incredible Hulk (Universal), starring Edward Norton, won the weekend over M. Night Shyamalan's 8th film, the apocalyptic horror film The Happening (20th Century Fox) with Mark Wahlberg. The relaunch of the Marvel Comics superhero opened with an estimated $54.5 million in 3,500 theaters after an opening day of $21 million, which is somewhat lower than the $62 million opening of Ang Lee's previous movie back in 2003. Based on the estimates, The Incredible Hulk is on par with other Marvel-based movies The X-Men in 2000 ($54.5 million) and Fantastic Four in 2005 ($56.06 million), but with a production budget of $150 million, it has a ways to go before it might considered a worthwhile endeavor to relaunch the character.
