Are we waiting for a new “Hulk”?

New ‘Hulk’ smash in 2008
Marvel has set a release date for its latest revamp of “The Incredible Hulk,” aiming the big green guy at a key weekend in the summer of 2008.
In a press release the comic and multimedia giant announced that the newest “Hulk” film will open on Friday, June 27, 2008. That release date puts “Hulk” less than two months after the company’s “Iron Man” opens on May 2.
Both movies are set to begin production next year, though “Hulk” is currently lacking a leading man, while the Jon Favreau-directed “Iron Man” will star Robert Downey Jr. and Terrence Howard.
The Ang Lee-directed “Hulk” opened to $62 million domestically in 2003, but word-of-mouth quickly set in and the worldwide total for the film stands at only $245 million. The confusingly titled remake/sequel/reimagining — Marvel’s press release alternates between calling it “The Hulk” and “The Incredible Hulk” — will be directed by Louis Leterrier (“Unleashed”).
Marvel also gave vague updates on a slew of other properties, noting that writers have been hired to work on “Captain America,” “Nick Fury,” “Thor” and “The Avengers” features, while a writer-director (Edgar Wright) is at work on “Ant-Man.” “Black Panther,” “Cloak & Dagger,” “Doctor Strange,” “Hawkeye,” “Power Pack” and “Shang-Chi” were listed as potential post-2009 ventures.
