The Marvel Comics-based series won't be happening. ABC Passes On AKA Jessica Jones

ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee confirmed in a conference call this morning that AKA Jessica Jones, a TV adaptation of the Marvel comic book series Alias, will not be going to series. The show would have featured the former superheroine turned investigator — named Jessica Jones, of course — and was to feature appearances from characters like Luke Cage (I’ll always call him Power Man) and Carol Danvers (I’ll always call her Ms. Marvel).

Lee did confirm, though, that the network still hopes The Hulk TV series is a possibility for the 2013 development season. He also revealed that ABC has some more Marvel projects in development, “but none that I can talk about at this point.”

Say it with us: Runaways!

Hopefully more news about future Marvel Comics-based properties as TV series will come soon. Considering The Avengers was so huge… now would be a great time.
