Having already conquered the world of music and TV, Donald Glover is adding another project to his resume. The Atlanta creator is lining up his next project with FXX and…Marvel. Per Deadline:
Archer is getting a famous (and foul-mouthed) companion. FXX has given a 10-episode series order to a Marvel’s Deadpool animated adult action-comedy series, an adaptation of the hit Marvel character, with Atlanta creator/executive producer/star Donald Glover and writer Stephen Glover attached as showrunners, executive producers and writers.
The untitled Marvel’s Deadpool series, set to debut in 2018, is produced by Marvel TV in association with FX Productions and ABC Signature Studios. It marks FX’s second collaboration with Marvel TV, joining their live-action drama series Legion, recently renewed for a second season.
I don’t see how this won’t be a success. Glover is already poised to voice Miles Morales for an animated Spider-Man flick, and with Marvel currently making an effort to dominate TV, an animated Deadpool series should fit right in for their plans for world domination.
