The Reason FX Canceled Donald Glover’s ‘Deadpool’ Animated Series

Published

on

Last spring, word of a Deadpool animated series got out, and fans were ecstatic. The thought of seeing the “Merc with a Mouth” on his own show was a complete thrill. Unfortunately, production on the show came to an abrupt end.

Pulled From The Network

FX officially canceled the series based on the popular Marvel Comics antihero. “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 press release. The show was originally given a 10 episode deal for its first season.

Many assumed Donald Glover was too preoccupied to work on the show. The star tweeted a 15-page script for one of the episodes. “For the record: I wasn’t too busy to work on Deadpool,” he said.

Over The Line?

The Glover brothers wanted the show to have a Rick & Morty vibe. In a deleted tweet, Stephen mentioned that one particular idea might’ve sealed the show’s fate. “There really was a Taylor Swift episode. It was HILARIOUS. And it definitely was the last straw lol,” he said.

Test footage from the show was uploaded to Vimeo to showcase what could’ve been. As expected, this footage was promptly removed.

A Second Chance?

There’s no word if Marvel will shop this show to other networks. With its adult humor, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if it landed on Netflix in the future.

While people wait for the final word, they can get their Deadpool fix with Deadpool 2. Arriving on May 18, this film finds Deadpool forming the X-Force to take on Cable. Deadpool 3 is also in the works right now. The 2016 film starring Ryan Reynolds broke numerous records as it took in $783 million at the box office.
