With the news last month of a live-action Hulk television series in development over at ABC, many questions are swimming through the minds of fans.
Will it be in continuity with the Marvel films?
Will any of the film actors commit to a television series?
Who will play Banner?
For myself, the first question that sprung to mind was, “How are they going to do the Hulk effects?” I’ve made no secret of my long-standing love affair with the not-so-jolly green giant, and of all the creative hoops the studio and show-runner will eventually have to jump through, the one that weighs most heavily on my mind as a fan is what the beast will actually look like on the small screen.
It might surprise some to learn that the Hulk is one of the few characters to have been brought to life through almost every school of visual effects there is.
Behind the cut, we’ll take a look at those different incarnations and speculate on their potential for the new television series.
During an event recently, actor Mark Ruffalo shared some details on his Incredible Hulk character in Joss Whedon‘s upcoming comic book epic, The Avengers.
Ruffalo offered up a cool little reveal about what was being planned for his part, saying “I’m really excited. No one’s ever played the Hulk exactly, they’ve always done CGI. They’re going to do the Avatar stop-action, stop-motion capture. So I’ll actually play the Hulk. That’ll be fun.”
In Ang Lee’s 2003 take, Hulk, with Eric Bana, and in Louis Leterrier’s 2008 film, The Incredible Hulk, with Edward Norton, the lead actors played Bruce Banner while Hulk was computer animated. But now, with technology constantly evolving, it should come as no surprise that they’ve decided to use motion-capture techniques with this new version of the giant green superhero.
