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.

Hmm...a TV show that absolutely, positively has to feature grade-A CGI every episode. Not just CGI, but the hardest kind of digital VFX, an emoting, humanoid dude interacting with non-CG people and environments. And if you skimp on CG for the villains, then you wind up with an odd rehash of the Bixby show.

Del Toro is great and everything, but budget constraints make this seem like a non-starter.
