Fanboy Fix: Incredible Hulk, Batman and Teen Wolf TV News

Guillermo Del Toro to Help Produce 'Incredible Hulk' TV Show

Ever since Disney acquired Marvel last year, they've made it clear that one of their initiatives will be to bring some of these superheroes to the small screen. One of the first Marvel characters to invade your television sets looks to be The Incredible Hulk, and according to Deadline Disney is moving forward on the project by bringing on two big guns: Guillermo Del Toro and David Eick. Del Toro you know as being the guy who brought us the Hellboy movies, Pan's Labyrinth and almost directed The Hobbit, while Eick was an executive producer of Battlestar Galactica. So, yeah, if these two guys can't get it right, then there really isn't much hope for the big green guy. Expect the series, which looks to be live action like the old late-70s Hulk TV show, to hit the small screen in 2012.
Holy TV Series, Batman!
It's a big rumor, but it's one that kinda makes sense. Comic Book Movie claims via a source that Warner Bros. is in the very early stages of piecing together a Batman TV series that will pick up after The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters. This would be a way for the studio to carry on the Batman story (a la Smallville), while re-casting it and possibly bringing back the Joker. Early casting suggests Karl Urban may be one of the potential Batmans they're looking at, but it's still way too early to get your hopes up – this may all just be a fantasy. Nevertheless, we expect Warners is already thinking ahead to life after Christopher Nolan, and a TV series – perhaps one linked to a future film franchise – may just do the trick.
MTV Launches Trailer for 'Teen Wolf' TV Show
Though it borrowed the name of the popular '80s movie starring Michael J. Fox, the upcoming MTV series looks to have absolutely nothing to do with the cult flick. Instead, MTV's Teen Wolf will be taking a more serious, Twilight-esque approach to the material, with a story about a teen who's bitten by a wolf and then brought into some sort of weird cat-and-mouse game that has him running from "the bad guys", one of which happens to be his new girlfriend's father.
