DEADPOOL Animated Series Coming To FXX From SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Star Donald Glover

Well, this was unexpected! With Deadpool 2 on the way to theaters in 2018, it's been revealed today than an adult orientated animated series is also in the offing. Hit the jump for all we know...

The Deadpool movie did an amazing job of bringing Wade Wilson to life, but you have to believe that an animated series could take the Merc with the Mouth's adventures one step further. Well, that's the plan anyway as it's been confirmed today that FXX is indeed working on an animated series which has been created by Donald Glover of Atlanta fame and his brother/writer Stephen Glover.

Details are scarce as of right now, but it's received a straight-to-series order and will debut next year with a ten episode first season. As well as serving as showrunners, the Glover brothers will be writers and executive producers and Marvel Television's Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are also involved. 

"How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX – the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth," Loeb said in a statement today. "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."

Whether Ryan Reynolds will be voicing Deadpool remains to be seen, but it would be pretty hard to find anyone capable of playing the character that effectively. We'll just have to wait and see when it comes to casting (not to mention animation style), but let us know your thoughts down below.
