18 is already shaping up to be the year of Deadpool, but now, fans have more than just a cinematic sequel to look forward to. Yesterday, FXX revealed that Atlanta’s Donald Glover and his brother, Stephen Glover, are writing and creating a new Deadpool animated series in collaboration with Marvel TV. As part of the deal, Donald Glover will follow in the footsteps of Ryan Reynolds as he gives Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth a new voice.
This won’t be Deadpool’s first animated appearance, but this may be the first time that the character can truly be used to his full potential. As much as we loved the first live-action film, it was somewhat limited in scope due to its budget. Surely a Deadpool cartoon can afford to show more than just two X-Men!
