A dream team of Battlestar Galactica exec producer David Eick and Hellboy director Guillermo Del Toro will create the new Hulk series for Marvel and ABC TV (see “Hulk on TV”), according to Deadline Hollywood.  The two will share the “created by” and story credits for the pilot, with Eick set to write and Del Toro set to direct depending on availability. 


The story will follow a young Bruce Banner, with the Hulk depicted with a combination of prosthetics, puppetry, and CGI. 


The series will be teed up to launch following the release of The Avengers in July of 2012.
