Marvel Studios President Ponders Sending Characters Back In Time For '1602’ Movie

Marvel '1602'FROM SPLASH PAGE: It’s been like an all you can eat smorgasbord at the Comic Book Buffet this summer, with fans gorging themselves on a heaping plateful of Batman, a giant helping of “Iron Man,” and a little taste of “Hellboy” and “Hulk.”

So indulgent was the feast, director "Hulk" Louis Leterrier told MTV News in June that we might be getting dangerously close to having our fill of the norm, and suggested Marvel mix it up with alternative superhero projects like “World War Hulk” or Neil Gaiman’s “1602.”

Gaiman, not surprisingly, recently said he thought it was a great idea. So could a project like “1602” -- which envisions the Marvel Universe if it took place in the year 1602 -- ever actually get made, though?

Yes, Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige told MTV News. Just don’t hold your breath.
