Neil Gaiman was recently urged on Twitter to pitch a TV show based on his 2003 limited series Marvel 1602. Gaiman responded that he already tried to do it last year, but Marvel wasn’t interested.
The eight-part series takes place in a timeline where Marvel superheroes exist in the Elizabethan era. The main series also had three spin-offs: 1602: New World, Marvel 1602: Fantastick Four, and Spider-Man: 1602.
Gaiman’s works are in the spotlight with Amazon’s adaptation of Good Omens and Starz’s adaptation American Gods.
