Guillermo Del Toro Will Co-Create New Hulk TV Show

It may have been a while since any substantive news dropped, but Guillermo Del Toro's upcoming ABC television series update on The Hulk is still happening, and the Don't Be Afraid of the Dark writer/producer wants you to know that things are still moving along.

With co-creator, David Eick (Exec-Producer of Battlestar Galactica), Del Toro has been quietly working on the project, which, first came to light last year. Since then, he's had the task of reinventing the iconic green goliath, while at the same time, walking a fine line as another version of the character (played by Mark Ruffalo) will be running rampant in the 2012 film crossover extravaganza, The Avengers.

Oddly enough, Del Toro finds himself in a situation with both free reign and restrictions.

What do you do on AOTS?

I make sure that the ideas the producers come up with happen. I make sure that the actors, props, wardrobe, etc. are all ready and present. Then, I make sure they all get paid.

The giant video game, the first thing I helped put together on the show.

Do you have any passions outside of working at G4?

None, I sleep. Actually, anything powered by an engine; cars, planes, boats.

Tiredly.

The logistic of putting product on your dog's fur are just too much. Thankfully, static electricity, while high maintenance, is a cheap and quick way to make this dog look like an albino sea urchin.

Marvel Comics Reveals New Ultimate Spider-Man

Pizza Delivery Dog

This is genius! Not only will pizza chains save so much money by hiring canines to deliver their product, the animals won't be able to eat it before reaching the doorstep, either. Unless the dogs figure out how to throw the pizza off their backs and then...I'm thinking way too much about this.

Ever felt that the traditional Transformers logo was a little too vague? Well, things just got a lot more literal!

Attack Of The Staff: Brendan Lahr, Production AssistantHometown: Potomac, MD
Position: 2B, I mean Production Assistant
Favorite Season: The best seasonal brews come out in summer
Least Favorite Nickname: Everyone here calls me “Blahr,” but it just sounds like slimer from Ghost Busters.

What do you do on AOTS?

As a PA, a pinch of everything; grabbing web videos and pages for different segments, producing the ten-second bumps in between commercial breaks, managing interns, fetching lunch and coffee orders, running around in a pink unitard, etc.

What is your favorite moment from the show?


Being crowned Wiffle Bat Fight Club champion was fun, but anytime we do anything “…in sixty seconds,” it ends up real funny.

Do you have any passions outside of working at G4?

Our national pastime, roasting vegetables, cutting holes in the d-floor.

So, how's it hanging?/ What it is?


It’s not hanging, it’s flying.

Star Trek 2, G.I. Joe 2, Mission Impossible 4 Change Release Dates

Paramount Pictures has shaken up its release schedule with significant changes to the 2012 movie year.

First, and foremost, the still-untitled Star Trek sequel, which had initially committed to an August 10, 2012 release, will have to bow to the logistics of time, abandoning its boldy-declared date. However, taking its place on that date, will be the Jon Chu-directed G.I. Joe sequel, which has recently changed its name (again,) this time to G.I. Joe: Retaliation. There, the Joe team will have a four day head-start over their primary rival, Marvel's (well, Sony's) wall-crawling reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man.

On another front, it seems that the movie studio did not think that Agent Ethan Hunt could contend with Sherlock Holmes, as Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, the fourth entry in the franchise, has been taken off a would-be box-office showdown with Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The film otherwise known as M:I:IV will now be pushed five days to December 21, on which it takes on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

So, where does that leave the Star Trek sequel?
