"The Hulk is in development," said Lee. "It wasn't going to be ready for this season, but we hope it will be ready for next season. We would like to see some Marvel projects move to television."

Lee also revealed that another Marvel project - AKA Jessica Jones - has stalled at the network.

"We did not pick it up for this season [and] we have another development which is further at the front of the queue," he said.

Other Marvel series may also be adapted for television by ABC Studios, but Lee refused to confirm specifics.

"We've got some in development, but none that I can talk about at this point," he explained. "Of course, we're immensely proud to be in a company with The Avengers and... we're going to continue to develop aggressively."

A Hulk TV project - produced by Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica's David Eick - was first announced in November 2010.

Mark Ruffalo recently played Bruce Banner / The Hulk in Joss Whedon's film The Avengers, which has made more than $1 billion (£623 million) worldwide.
