While the network’s reboot of “The Incredible Hulk” didn’t make it into ABC’s fall 2012 lineup, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee says the project continues to go forward, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Said Lee: "Hulk is in development. It wasn’t going to be ready this season but we hope it’s going to be ready for next season."
The story reports: “Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro (‘Pan’s Labyrinth’) is developing the project for the Disney-owned network after ABC’s parent company purchased Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion in late 2009.”
Lee commented on corporate synergy, with Disney distributing the mega-hit feature film “The Avengers.” The movie includes a performance by Mark Ruffalo as Dr. Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk.
"We’re immensely proud to be a company with ‘The Avengers,’" Lee said. "We’re going to continue to develop aggressively."
