Writer Neil Gaiman says that he pitched a TV version of his and artist Andy Kubert's 2003 limited series Marvel 1602, which transported some of Marvel's characters and concepts to a world set in the 1600s, to Marvel Television - but according to Gaiman, they weren't biting.

"I asked Marvel TV about me making 1602 last year, but they weren't interested," Gaiman said on Twitter in response to a fan query. "Such a pity."

1602 was a hit with fans and critics alike, leading to several sequels in the intervening years. In 2008, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige expressed interest in a 1602 film, however no project ever developed.
