With The Avengers having smashed through the $1 billion mark, ABC is very much dedicated to bringing the Hulk back to TV, though it probably won’t happen until next year. The past few years have seen a number of comic book properties trying to make it on television, with many of them failing, but will Hulk be a SMASH?
The network’s entertainment president told reporters Tuesday during a conference call ahead of his formal upfront presentation to Madison Avenue ad buyers in New York that he’d still like to “see some Marvel projects come to television.”
“Hulk is in development,” he confirmed. “It wasn’t going to be ready this season but we hope it’s going to be ready for next season.” Oscar nominee Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labrynth) is developing the project for the Disney-owned network after ABC’s parent company purchased Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion in late 2009.
Within just seven hours of Diablo III being released yesterday, several groups had already beaten the game and within 12 hours, one lone bastard beat the game single-handedly. While these sorts of speed runs don’t really allow for a real enjoyment of the content, it is pretty impressive and it’s the kind of crazy that comes with most Blizzard releases.
The single player who beat the game, named Yoshichan, posted his end-game stats, and has a time of twelve hours and twenty-nine minutes. He made it to level 32 as a barbarian, playing on normal difficulty.
Of the two groups that cleared the game in seven hours, one was from South Korea, the other from China.
Members of the Halo Waypoint Forums were emailed 32 pieces of the Halo 4 box art, which they had to put together. When they did… voila! This is the official box art for the next Halo game.
The game is set four years after the events of Halo 3. “Master Chief returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe.”
