Did you catch that brief glimpse of the new CG Hulk at the end of The Avengers trailer last week? If so, you just saw what the TV version of The Hulk looks like. AceShowbiz reports that at New York Comic Con this past weekend, the head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb confirmed that the upcoming television show on ABC will simply re-use the CG model from The Avengers movie to keep costs down. The series will focus more on Bruce and Betty than Hulk smashing things, but hopefully it won’t be another Lois & Clark romantic dramady.
The most terrifying bit of news out of all this is that Jeph Loeb is in charge of Marvel TV. Ignoring his regularly terrible comic stories, he’s responsible for some of the worst times on Lost and pretty much helped kill Heroes.
