New Incredible Hulk show! Hulk smash original concept! TV be more like 1970s now! That last good decade for idea, apparently!

It’s the first project for Disney’s new Marvel TV division under the direction of Heroes/Smallville writer-producer Jeph Loeb, and the first small-screen live-action take on the character since Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno shared a pair of pants from 1978 to 1982.
