Last year, it was announced that FX and Marvel Television were teaming up to create an adult animated series starring Deadpool. Donald and Stephen Glover came on board as showrunners for the 10-episode series, which was scheduled to launch this year on FXX. Unfortunately, that’s no longer happening.
FX has announced today (via The Hollywood Reporter) that the network and the Glovers are no longer attached to Deadpool. Here is the network’s statement. “Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series. FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue.”
Right now, it’s unclear if Marvel TV will move Deadpool to another network and creative team, or just cancel it completely. Either way, this is surely disappointing news for fans of the Merc With A Mouth. But at least we’re just a couple months away from Deadpool 2 hitting theaters.
Stay tuned for more as we have it.
