With Marvel’s The Avengers already having earned over $1 billion at theaters worldwide, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee said today in a conference call (via the New York Daily News) that they are still hoping to bring The Hulk back to the small screen as well.
Lee mentioned that ABC is working to have the show ready for the 2013-2014 season. “We had hoped it would be ready this year, but that didn’t happen,” said Lee. The project is being developed by Guillermo del Toro and David Eick for ABC Studios and Marvel TV.
He added that the show could air on ABC or another network. “Wherever it would work best,” said Lee.
Regarding “AKA Jessica Jones,” which was also in development at ABC Studios, Lee said it hasn’t been picked up but is not dead yet. “Other projects are more toward the front of the queue now.” “Twilight” franchise screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg was adapting the comic.
There was no mention of “Cloak and Dagger,” the third property that ABC was eyeing as a series.
