FXX’s Deadpool Series Project Breaks Down Further
We have previously passed on the news that FXX’s announced Deadpool animated series has been cancelled, but noted that the project could still be picked up and brothers Donald and Stephen Glover are still attached as co-producers and showrunners.
Well, scratch all of that. Because an update from Variety reveals that the Glover brothers have finally left the project. FX’s official statement confirms the news:
“Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series, FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue.”
It does not look like the Glovers’ relationship with FXX or Disney has been affected. Donald Glover is still executive producing and starring in Atlanta, and is still playing Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story. He is also set to voice Simba in the upcoming reimagining of The Lion King.
Deadpool fans will also not be left empty-handed, as they can still look forward to the upcoming live action sequel that’s due out on May 18.
