FX is not going forward with its Marvel’s Deadpool animated adult action-comedy series, from Atlanta creator/executive producer/star Donald Glover and writer Stephen Glover.
“Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series,” the network said in a statement Saturday.
FX’s other collaboration with Marvel TV, live-action drama series Legion, is heading into its second season, which debuts April 3.
The untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series was to be produced by Marvel TV in association with FX Productions and ABC Signature Studios.
Further complicating things, for Donald Glover, the Deadpool animated series fell under an exclusive overall deal he has at FX Prods.
(Donald Glover and his brother Stephen were attached as showrunners, executive producers and writers of the Deadpool animated series).
The goal had been to launch a new FXX animated series behind Season 9 of Archer in 2018, with Marvel’s Deadpool considered a strong contender. »
