Donald Glover is Developing an Animated DEADPOOL Series For FXX!
Whoa! FXX is producing a Deadpool animated series, and Atlanta creator and star Donald Glover is developing it with his brother Stephen Glover. Everything about this news is extremely exciting!
There's no title for the series yet, but the network has already given it a 10-episode first season and it's expected to premiere in 2018. The Glover brothers will not only be writing the series, but they will also serve as the show runners and executive producers. Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb is also serving as an executive producer. Loeb had this to say in a statement:
“How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth. We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with ‘Legion’ continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”
With the success of the Deadpool movie, the character is more popular now than he's ever been, and an animated series like this could be amazing! I'm really excited to see what Glover has planned for this thing!
There are no other details regarding the story, what characters will be involved, or who will be cast to provide the voices, but I can't wait to find out! What do you all think about Donald Glover developing an animated Deadpool series for FXX?
