Donald Glover's Deadpool animated series canceled at FX

FX Pulls the Plug On Marvel's Deadpool Animated TV Series From Donald Glover

However, FX have now issued a statement announcing the series is not moving ahead at the network after "creative differences" caused them, Marvel, and the Glovers to part ways on the project.

Originally announced in May of past year, the still untitled project was being driven by popular modern renaissance man Donald Glover (Atlanta, Community, Magic Mike XXL) and his brother/Atlanta co-writer Stephen Glover.

While the new Deadpool animated television series has been placed back on the shelf, there is the chance for the project to find a home elsewhere.

FX has backed out of its animated "Deadpool" series, which was given a 10-episode order on FXX last May.

Glover, who helms the Golden Globe-winning series "Atlanta" at FX, has a unusual relationship to the world of Marvel comics.

The trio made a deal to adapt Marvel's Deadpool into an animated series in May 2017. Marvel head of TV Jeph Loeb had said at the time.

But foreign experts who examined the security arrangements said they were 'as good as any they have seen. Giles Clarke, director of International Cricket Council (ICC), praised Pakistan's efforts.

FX president John Landgraf told reporters in August that the Deadpool series would feature a "different tone and editorial voice" with the Glovers' involvement.

The series was to be produced FX and Marvel TV in association with ABC Signature Studios. "We really wanted to make something that was distinctly different from the movie", he said. In addition to "Atlanta", he co-stars in the upcoming "Solo: A Star Wars Story" film, which opens in May.

An animated show would be the ideal fit for the cartoonish, fourth-wall-breaking Deadpool, but now the chances of that happening seem pretty slim. The comedy series is rumored to be released on Disney's streaming service.

Ryan Reynolds played the titular antihero in the 2016 live-action Deadpool blockbuster and will reprise his role in the movie sequel Deadpool 2 May 18.

It's such unfortunate news for "Deadpool" fans.
