Donald Glover Is Bringing Deadpool To TV
Fire up the fryer: It’s time to celebrate with a plate full of chimichangas. Why are we celebrating, you ask? Because Deadpool is coming to TV!
Donald Glover will executive produce a Deadpool animated series for FXX, the network announced Wednesday (May 10). Glover—the Golden Globe-winning creator, star, and writer of FX’s critically acclaimed series Atlanta—will share writing and executive-producer credits on Marvel’s still-untitled series with his brother and frequent collaborator, Stephen Glover.
Deadpool, otherwise known as the Merc with a Mouth, is a foul-mouthed Marvel Comics character created by Robert Liefeld in 1991. The character has enjoyed a cultish following and saw a significant resurgence in popularity thanks to the successful 2016 film starring Ryan Reynolds.
So hopefully this picture makes even much more sense now!! Don’t ever let it be said I can’t keep a secret as I’ve known about this cartoon for 12 months! On Golden Globes night I raced over to Donald to tell him how thrilled I was that he was producing Deadpool! SO EXCITING! Pinch me!! Congrats FX , Marvel and Donald Glover! #robliefeld #deadpool #xforce #marvel #donaldglover #atlanta #robliefeldcreations
