Production on Deadpool Animated Series Starts
According to a recent announcement, FXX has already started production on a new adult-targeted animated series based on Marvel’s Deadpool property, noting that the series is created by brothers Donald and Stephen Glover.
The news of a Deadpool series is not entirely a surprise. The talkative, near-unkillable mercenary has shot to mainstream popularity since Ryan Reynolds’ larger than life portrayal in the Deadpool live action movie, and the character itself has made numerous appearances in various Marvel cartoon shows. More importantly, the series has project has already received a 10 episode order as far back as May 2017.
The Glovers will also be serving as showrunners and executive producers aside from being writers of the series, and it is expected that they will bring their own brand of humor to the series. Considering that the Deadpool property is no stranger to mature audiences, the Glovers will probably have ample freedom to tackle topics that would not be approved on Saturday Morning cartoons.
