Last year, FX announced it was working with Donald Glover on an animated “Deadpool” series, but it looks like the cartoon won’t be seeing the light of day.
IndieWire reports the network, which had originally ordered 10 episodes of the series from the “Atlanta” creator and star and his brother Stephen Glover, has been cancelled “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 said in a statement to IndieWire. “FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on ‘Legion,’ which will continue.”
In a series of tweets, Glover set the record straight about why the show is being shelved, offering an epic tweetstorm featuring pages from a “Deadpool” script and insisting that he “wasn’t too busy to work on deadpool.”
Thankfully, “Deadpool” fans still have a lot to look forward to, with “Deadpool 2” starring Ryan Reynolds coming to theatres May 18.
Donald Glover, meanwhile, will next be seen in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” on May 25.
