    This is way out there but I actually had an idea for a new Hulk type series. For those of you who saw the final movie where Banner dies, the woman he was trying to save and David had fallen in love. In fact, they slept together it seems. What if she had gotten pregnant during that time, and it is several years later that the child discovers he is afflicted with the gamma radiation that haunted his father making him change into a Hulk like creature?

    There is nothing far fetched about that idea at all, in fact...it would probably be how they would make a new show if they made one.

    A far-fetched idea would be to send TH to Anger Management.

    Your Movie's named: Seed of Hulk?

    That's a pretty good idea. I would most likely watch something resembling that.

    Hi, I used to think that could have been a follow up..."Son Of The Incredible Hulk". I can just imagine it!!

    Very good idea. I'm all for them bringing back the Hulk to television in a new series.

    I agree. I don't think there's anything far-fetched about your idea at all. In fact, I've had the same idea. Who knows? Maybe the powers-that-be will see this potential and get the ball rolling for new Hulk series. Thanks for sharing.

    How should this new Hulk person look like? Is it better to use CGI to portray this new Hulk or stay to the old fashioned way by using a real person e.g. bodybuilder ? I know the new Hulk films are using CGI and special effects but is this feasible for a TV show? A movie like the hulk has a much bigger budget and that is only 2 hours. I personally think a bodybuilder playing the Hulk is less expensive then using CGI. But could we live with such a character that is inferior in size and strength then a computer based model?

    Thats a good question. I always thought the Lou ferrigno Hulk just couldnt capture the strenght described in the Hulk Comics. Just lifting a car seemed like a feat on the show. Then the movies come along and BAM they capture the true strenght of the Hulk throwing a Tank like it were bicycle. So going back to a person would be hard to accept or to even suspend disbelief after seeing the CGI version.

    Agreed. What worked in the 70's may not work in today's audience.

    MessagePersonally, I think a CGI Hulk is too expensive for a series but you are right when you are saying that a real person would be hard to accept after seeing the CGI. But is that what we wanna see in a series, a CGI hulk? I always liked the Bixby-Ferrigno duality because they were real men. I never felt any sympathy with a CGI version. And let's be honest, who wants to see a CGI hulk fighting some villains, that would be boring and over in a second. A CGI hulk would need a real opponent like the army or creature created in a lab but can this be done every week in a series? The success for the 70-80' series was the drama and not the ****or strength of the hulk. A good script is more successful. So for me personally, we don't need CGI for the continuation of the Hulk series. CGI in a series must be limited to the minimum. Look what CGI did to the new Knight Rider series ! Even the driving, the whole concept of the series, is CGI !

    I actually had this idea too. But I would have extended it, and the series is set when the boy starts college, hoping to keep his "creature" at bay. His roomate at college is called James McGee, and he is the nephew of the investigative reporter who chased Banner for many years. The son doesn't know about McGee's pursuit of his father (since this was not mentioned to Jasmine, in DOTIH), and McGee wouldn't know about the son being the son of David Banner, since his uncle thought Banner died in the lab fire, and the son uses his mother's surname. It could really make things interesting, as these best friends become unknowing enemies, with the son becoming the Hulk each episode, and McGee trying to get the scoop his uncle failed to get.
