picBack in October we first heard word about a new Hulk television series being adapted.

Now, Guillermo Del Toro informs that he just turned in an outline to ABC and also did a revision.

"We turned in the outline to ABC about four weeks ago. And then we did a rewrite for ABC on the outline, and now we are lining up the pages," stated Del Toro.

Del Toro went on to say their vision of a Hulk TV series will be different, when asked by

"One of the points of this project early on with Marvel, was 'We're going to do this thing different, and here's how. Are you interested?' And they were," said Del Toro.

Back in November, Deadline reported the synopsis to be about, "physicist Bruce Banner, whose alter ego is the green and raging Hulk, will be in his mid-twenties, less reactive and more energized as the world is still his oyster."

In regards to what the Hulk will look like, in the same article it is stated, "Unlike the two Hulk movies, in which the monster was a pure CGI creation, the series will employ a mixture of prosthetics, puppetry and CGI. Del Toro will also oversee the designing of the Hulk character, which is expected to draw on previous comic book incarnations, as well as the original 1978-82 Incredible Hulk TV series, with a few wild tweaks on the old look."

Look for the new Hulk series on ABC in the Fall of 2012 with David Eick (Battlestar: Galactica) and Del Toro on the pilot.
