FXX and Marvel Television are officially teaming up to develop an adult- oriented Deadpool animated series, with Donald Glover on board as showrunner, along with frequent collaborator and younger brother, Stephen Glover. The as-yet-untitled TV show has landed a ten-episode season order, and it’ll hit the airwaves in 2018.Without any casting details to report, it’s still early, early days on FXX’s Deadpool animated series, but if nothing else, today’s exciting announcement proves that Marvel’s foul-mouthed anti-hero is very much in vogue.
This Deadpool offshoot will embrace its animated nature with two blood-soaked hands. Story-wise, it’s impossible to know what Glover and FX plan to rustle up, but Jeph Loeb has full confidence that all involved will be able to deliver a competent take on the Merc With a Mouth that stays true to the cheeky source material.
Deadpool animated series is in the works for 2018.
