Deadpool Gets Animated at FXX

Deadpool is a pretty animated character, so it’s no surprise he’s actually getting animated in a new television show created by Donald Glover and Stephen Glover and will run on FXX. The animated show has been given a straight-to-series order with a 10 episode first season that will likely debut in 2018.

Donald and Stephen Glover will serve as showrunners and executive producers for the series. Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory are executive producers. The untitled series is produced by Marvel Television in association with FX Productions and ABC Signature Studios for FXX.

It should be no surprise that this is happening after the success of the live action film featuring the character which earned $783 million worldwide off of a $58 million budget and has a sequel coming out in 2018.

Donald Glover is already part of the “Marvel family” as he’ll appear in Spider-Man: Homecoming out this July and his fellow Atlanta actor Zazie Beetz has been cast as Domino in the Deadpool film sequel.

It’s unknown who will be providing the voice of the character.
