Marvel's Deadpool to Star in Adult Animated Comedy Series for FXX

Wade Wilson is so touching himself tonight, after hearing this news.

Marvel comics’ Deadpool is coming to TV as the star of an animated adult action-comedy for FXX, it was announced on Wednesday.

FXX has ordered 10 episodes of the untitled Marvel Television/FX Productions/ABC Signature Studios co-production, which boasts Atlanta‘s WGA Award-winning Donald Glover and Stephen Glover as showrunners, executive producers and writers. Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory will also serve as EPs on the series, which is eyed to debut in 2018.

“Donald Glover is an incredibly gifted and versatile artist who’ll bring the untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series to life with the same intense, singular vision as his breakout hit Atlanta,” said Nick Grad, president of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions, in a statement. “With the success of Legion, we’re looking forward to again partnering with Marvel Television to create a series that is bold, striking and entirely original.”

Marvel TV chief Loeb added, “How much more fun could this be? Deadpool, Donald and FX — the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth! 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.”

Deadpool of course has been most memorably brought to life on the big screen by Ryan Reynolds in the eponymous, R-rated 2016 film (which grossed $783 million worldwide) and its sequel (slated for June 2018).

    LOL! I love me some Deadpool! I may have to check this out. Hopefully Wolverine and Spiderman can make cameos from time to time.

    This could be fun, especially if they can get Ryan Reynolds to voice him. Pairing it with Archer would be awesome.

  7. Hoban Washburne says:

    You had me at Deadpool.
    You lost me with Donald Glover.
    The Community absenteeism induced boycott remains.

    If they can’t get Ryan Reynolds, I hope they at least get Will Friedle who voiced him on the Disney Spideman show and was awesome.
