Watch Deadpool Fight Gorilla Man in This Rejected Animation Test Footage For The Canceled Animated Series
Deadpool fans were disappointed to learn earlier this week that Donald Glover's Deadpool animated series was canceled by FX and Marvel. Glover himself made it clear he wasn't happy with how things went down as he released a script that he wrote that rips into Marvel. You have to remember this cancellation came after he was already given a 10-episode first season order.
Since then, a fun piece of animation test footage has surfaced online! This footage comes from an animation studio named Titmouse, and it was a pitch video that they put together to try and land the animation work on the show. The network ended up turning them down and going with the animation studio that does Archer. I've definitely seen better animation than what they created here, but it's still a lot of fun to watch!
The footage shows Deadpool jump into battle with several villains at some kind of shipping facility and at the end he takes on the big boss, which I believe is Gorilla Man. I don't know of any other Gorilla characters in the Marvel universe. Or it could just be a character they made up for the animation test, but regardless, it's definitely a gorilla man.
Anyway, the animation test uses some of Ryan Reynolds' dialogue from the live-action movie, and he's just cracking jokes all the way through the fight. Check out the animation test below and let us know what you think!
