Marvel’s Deadpool will be coming to your TV screen very soon thanks to Donald Glover. After the huge success of his Atlanta series on FX, Glover received the green light for a few additional shows. He along with Stephen Glover will develop an adult animated comedy series based on the popular movie.
The ten-episode series will air in 2018, but no word yet on whether Ryan Reynolds who stared in the Deadpool movie will be in the series.
“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.” -Jeph Loeb, Marvel TV Chief
“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.” -Nick Grad, FX Original Programming President
