Nick Grad, Co-President of Programming at FX 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.”

Loeb added:

“How much more fun could this be? DEADPOOL, Donald and FX– the perfect fit for the Merc with the Mouth! We’re thrilled that our relationship with FX that started with LEGION continues with what is sure to be a groundbreaking show in adult animation.”

Since his debut in 1991, Deadpool has grown to become one of Marvel’s most popular character thanks to his unique blend of humor and the over-the-top action. Currently, the character is played by Ryan Reynolds on the big screen with his feature debut still the highest grossing X-Men movie and R-rated movie of all time. A sequel is set to be released in theaters in 2018 and it remains to be seen what kind of relation the film and TV series will have.
