‘Deadpool’ Animated Series Coming to FXX From Donald Glover
Just when you thought it crazy enough a Deadpool movie blew away the competition, the Merc With a Mouth is coming to TV as well. FXX will host a new “adult” animated comedy for the fourth wall-breaking hero, executive produced by none other than Donald Glover.
FXX confirmed the news on Wednesday, noting that the ten-episode 2018 series will be written, executive produced and showrun by Donald Glover and brother Stephen, in addition to their work on Atlanta. No voice is listed for the title character, though the new project is described as “an animated adult action-comedy TV series adaptation.”
Donald Glover is an incredibly gifted and versatile artist who’ll bring the untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series to life with the same intense, singular vision as his breakout hit Atlanta. With the success of Legion, we’re looking forward to again partnering with Marvel Television to create a series that is bold, striking and entirely original.
Added Marvel TV:
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.
Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool sequel continues gearing up for production, so stay tuned for more on FXX’s new animated series as it arrives.
