Hey, Ed Norton! Still hankering to play the Hulk after your big-screen snub? Got ABC on speed dial? Then maybe you should give them a buzz, 'cause even though Mark Ruffalo has a lock on the movie role, it looks like Hollywood has room for a SECOND Hulk—on television!

Turns out Marvel and ABC are in the early stages of development for a TV return of the Incredible Hulk, who last appeared in an ongoing series starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno from 1978-82 on CBS.

As for who'll be the big brain behind the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

Hulk has a "showrunner wanted" placard around its neck, and sources are saying that Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica producer David Eick will be pitching a take. ABC had no comment.

What do you think? Is the world ready for both a movie and TV Hulk? And considering the Norton/Ruffalo brouhaha, which actor should get a shot at playing THIS Bruce Banner?
