Donald Glover seems to be one of the most low-key-but-busiest people over the past couple of years and in the next couple of years. Recently, it was announced Glover would be creating an animated comedy series about Marvel’s Deadpool.
Glover, who is also starring in upcoming The Lion King and Star Wars, is making the Deadpool inspired series for an adult audience. Although the upcoming series is inspired by Deadpool, it’s in no relation to the Deadpool film which came out last year.
Nick Grad, president of original programming at FX, commented on Glover’s upcoming show saying, “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,'” according to Rap-Up.
The series is set to debut on FXX in 2018, and currently has not hired a lead actor.
