According to Deadline Hollywood, del Toro and Eick will work together to break down the story specifics and share a created by credit. If all goes according to plan, Eick will write and del Toro will direct if it fits into his schedule.
The TV series plot will include a retelling of the famous origin story, wherein scientist Bruce Banner is exposed to gamma rays that transform him into the Incredible Hulk when angry.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, ABC is prepping an 'Incredible Hulk' TV series after two film versions never really scored well at the box office.
This isn't the first time Marvel has brought 'The Incredible Hulk' to TV. Bill Bixby starred in the 1970s CBS show and TV movies long before CGI. Mark Ruffalo has been tapped to play the Hulk in Marvel's 'Avengers' film.
News of a new 'Hulk' show not doing it for you, True Believers? What about 'Cloak & Dagger'? That's right, another project at the newly formed Marvel Television features those runaway misfits.
Since I have kids and a job, I don't get to see many movies in the theaters these days unless it's a crappy kids movie. Generally if I want to see grown up movie I have to rent the DVD. In some cases, the movie is such a blockbuster that watching it at home defeats the purpose.
Luckily once in a while a film is released that I want to see and I can also take my kids. Iron Man is one of those films.

I got a crazy question this week and I must admit I am completely stumped.
Jean Noel writes, "Me and my brother are trying to remember a movie made for TV or a show. I think it aired in the 80's. He can remember a man with some sort of powers. When in danger, parts of his body transformed in some sort of robot. One time he was running from the bad guys and his hand shot some sort of laser and another he was running and a wall fell on top of him half his body turned into this robot like thing at the end of the movie he became that robot like superhero. Can anyone help me with the name of this show or movie?"

Producers are currently seeking audition tapes. You need to get your geek on with a costume, an original idea, and some serious superhero personality. Contestants will be chosen through interviews with comic book creator, Stan Lee (Spider-Man, The X-Men, Fabulous Four, Daredevil, Incredible Hulk). Lee will write a comic about the winner of the contest, making the superhero immortal in the world of comics.
To give you an idea of what producers are looking for, Lee said, "While no one is expected to leap tall buildings in a single bound, our aspiring heroes will be tested on their courage, integrity, self-sacrifice, compassion, and resourcefulness - the stuff of all superheroes."
What would your superhero powers be?
