Deadpool to get the TV treatment

Deadpool getting animated series on FXX 2

Deadpool fans were all pretty stoked with the success of last year's R-rated film starring Ryan Reynolds, who managed to redeem the character as a whole after it was butchered in the atrocious X-Men Origins: Wolverine years earlier.

Glover is producing an animated series featuring Marvel's Deadpool for FX, the cable network announced on Wednesday. They will serve as executive producers on the Marvel Television and FX Productions series.

Donald Glover has previous experience working on TV, having created and starred in award-winning USA show Atlanta.

The Glover brothers are showrunners, executive producers and writers for the series, while Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also executive producers.

Fans can expect to see the series make its debut in a 10-episode inaugural season in 2018, the same year Glover's smash hit series, Atlanta, is set to make its return to TV.




The show joins a robust field of Marvel TV adaptations, including FX's Legion, as well as Netflix's Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist and, coming soon, The Defenders. Deadpool, Donald and FX - the ideal fit for the Merc with the Mouth!

The movie grossed over $800 million off of a $58 million budget.

The Atlanta star has his hands in so many projects including Spider-Man: Homecoming, Star Wars and the live-action version of The Lion King that it's hard to keep up.

No voice actors for this Deadpool series have yet been named, although it would pretty damn great to have Reynolds on board.
