Look Out, Reynolds, There’s a New Deadpool in Town: Donald Glover Brings Animated Marvel Series to FXX

Sorry RyRey; Donald Glover is taking over your world — the animated version, anyway.

Via Marvel comes news that Glover and his writer brother, Stephen (Atlanta) will serve as showrunners on Deadpool, a 10-episode, adult animated series which will air on FXX.

This is kinda like that time …

Don’t despair, dude; they haven’t yet cast any actors, so who knows — maybe you’ll be invited for a cameo spot. And hey, you’re still king-of-the-big-screen Wade Wilson.

The Glover brothers will expand the network’s already successful collaboration with Marvel, and FX is clearly thrilled about the prospect, evidenced by the network’s statement:

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.”

Marvel Television head, Jeph Loeb added, “How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth!”

Um … yeah, that looks like fun, too!

Stay tuned for further details.
