The future of John Ridley’s secret Marvel project for ABC seems more in question than ever.
When asked for a progress update by reporters following her executive session at the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour Sunday, network president Channing Dungey said she did not have one.
When pressed whether Ridley was still working on the project, Dungey replied, “I’m actually not sure. That’s a question for Marvel.”
Back in January, Dungey revealed Ridley had been working on a rewrite, but had not seen any new drafts.
The project was initially announced back in 2015, though no details of what the show actually was has ever been revealed.
In April, Ridley gave his own status update, telling Variety, “I still want to do it. Hopefully it will still get done.”
Ridley also expressed Marvel’s release schedule might be the reason it’s taken so long to see any progress on his project, joking, “They’ve got a release schedule that far exceeds my life expectancy.”
