Default Donald Glover bringing DEADPOOL adult animated series to FXX!

FXX Orders Adult Animated Comedy The Untitled Marvel's Deadpool Series from Marvel Television and FXP


Quote:
FXX orders ten episodes of the first season which is scheduled to debut in 2018

FXX has placed a series order with Marvel Television and FX Productions for the untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series, an animated adult action-comedy TV series adaptation of the hit Marvel character Deadpool, it was announced jointly today by Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, and Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television.


Atlanta creator and Golden Globe® Award Winner Donald Glover and Stephen Glover will serve as Showrunners, Executive Producers and Writers of the series. Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are Executive Producers. The untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series is produced by Marvel Television in association with FX Productions and ABC Signature Studios for FXX, which has ordered ten episodes for season one.


“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,” said Nick Grad. “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.”
Jeph Loeb added, “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.”


Since his debut in 1991, Deadpool has grown to become one of Marvel’s most popular characters thanks to his unique blend of humor and over-the-top action. With a rabid following of fans from across the globe, he currently stars in a variety of best-selling titles from Marvel Comics.
Donald Glover is the creator, executive producer, writer and star of Atlanta, which was the most critically acclaimed comedy series of 2016, basic cable’s most-watched new comedy in three years and the highest-rated comedy in FX Networks’ history. Glover himself won the Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Awards and the show took home the awards for: Golden Globe, AFI, Peabody, and WGA and received DGA and NAACP nominations. Season two of Atlanta is tentatively scheduled to debut in early 2018 on FX.


Upcoming for Glover includes Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming, Han Solo and Jon Favreau’s The Lion King. Glover is known for his success under the stage name “Childish Gambino.” He released his first album, Camp, in 2011. His second album, Because the Internet, was nominated for two Grammy Awards and generated the hit song “3005.” His most recent album, Awaken, My Love!, was released in December 2016, debuted #1 on the R&B Albums Chart and is his highest-charting album.


Stephen Glover is a staff writer on FX’s award-winning series Atlanta, writing four episodes of the series ten-episode first season. In addition to script writing, he also wrote music and lyrics for the show with Donald Glover. Along with writing for television, he also has experience writing for stand-up comedians. Glover also works in music as an accomplished songwriter and performer.


Donald Glover is repped by Dianne McGunigle of MGMT Entertainment, WME and Lev Ginsburg. Stephen Glover is represented by WME and Lev Ginsburg.

THIS IS AWESOME NEWS!!

With Donald Glover running the show this could be something truly amazing, and it's ironic how Atlanta's Zazie Beetz is playing Domino in Deadpool 2 and now Atlanta's creator and star Donald Glover is bringing the character to the small screen in animated form. I'd love it if the art style vaguely remembers Ed McGuinness' art from the comics.

Nolan North for Wade Wilson, Xmen, X force characters to appear, maybe. I don't mind if it looks like that Archer show, visually.

Wouldn't be against that but who knows, maybe someone else is more fitting for Donald Glover's take on the character.

The Deadpool animated series is a co-production between Marvel Television and FX Productions (which is a Fox company), so theoretically pretty much everyone from the Marvel universe could make an appearance in it.

And as much as I love Archer, I think that Deadpool needs a slightly more dynamic animation and visual style.

This is the best news I've heard all week. An adult animated Deadpool cartoon being led by Donald Glover has amazing chances to be great.

It's not.
Seems like this Deadpool show has been in development for almost a year, and is currently being written in London, where Glover is filming 'Han Solo.'
In the meantime 'Atlanta' season 2 has already been written and will go into production once he's done with the 'Star Wars' spin-off.

Noah Hawley didn't put 'Fargo' on hiatus to work on 'Legion.' This shorter 10-episode format allows showrunners to juggle different projects.

Ah I just realized this is the X-Men related cartoon Bleeding Cool mentioned earlier this year. Cool.

I understand that, later in 2017, we will get the announcement of a cartoon as well that’s part of the X-Men family.

I think he’s a little old for the role.
