The post-Avengers Marvel project we're perhaps most excited about — sorry, Thor 2 and Captain America 2 — is the promise of a Hulk TV series produced by Guillermo del Toro. But the Pan's Labyrinth director is often followed with a list of forever-in-development projects, so imagine our surprise when he announced that the show will go on! In a recent interview with Collider, the director promised that his Hulk program is still moving forward:
I had one meeting with Marvel after Avengers and we had a very, very good chat. We have a writer that we want to bring on board, a very, very concrete name. I can't reveal it, but we want to wait for that writer. It's a writer who is otherwise engaged. So right now we are in a holding pattern until that writer becomes free. Then we're going to do a new draft of the script.
Good, we'd rather him wait for the right scribe than just whoever was available. Another interesting fact: del Toro revealed that he became very close to directing both Thor and the Wolverine sequel that's currently filming.
