Donald Glover, AKA Childish Gambino, has a huge surprise for us - FXX and Marvel Television have announced an adult animated series based on the Deadpool character is in the works!
Glover, the genius behind the award-winning series 'Atlanta', along with his brother Stephen, will be the executive producers, showrunners and writers for the new series. This can mean only good things if their previous work is anything to go by.
In a press release, co-president of Original Programming at FX Networks and FX Productions said:
"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.’ 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."
Ryan Reynolds made us fall in love with Deadpool last year, and no doubt Glover will live up to the hype.
Season one is expected to be 10 episodes long, and will be released to our eagerly awaiting selves in 2018 - this one's gonna be good!
