Donald Glover Tweets and Deletes Mock Script of DeadPool Animated Series

Donald Glover skewers those who didn't let him make his Deadpool animated series with a 15-page script

Indeed, Donald Glover himself stoked those fires with a series of since-deleted tweets that seemed to obliquely reference his issues with Marvel and FX.

In response to the news, Glover took to Twitter to share a script that he'd titled the "Finale" of Deadpool: The Animated Series. "It was HILARIOUS. And it was definitely the last straw lol". But he did send a second tweet about the show's demise, which addressed another concern from Donald's mock script: "Our show wasn't too black".

In the meantime, there's still Atlanta-which could always do a Taylor Swift-themed episode of its own.

Tiangong-1 Space Station To Fall To Earth Within A Week
China's prototype eight-tonne spacecraft Tiangong-1 is likely to crash on Earth this week or by the first week of April. The space lab will fall back to Earth on its own, pulled down by the atmospheric drag.

Marvel fans were shocked to discover earlier this week that a planned Deadpool animated series that was being developed for FX by Donald Glover had been canceled, with many rumors surfacing about the possible reason for the abandonment of the project. But we definitely wanted to give "Rick and Morty" a run for their money and I think we would have. Leaving up only one tweet isn't entirely odd for Glover, though we can't help but wonder if he deleted his Deadpool tweets on his own volition or if the fan interest around his script has caused the project to get back on the market.

It sees the titular superhero on a mission to save Sudan from poachers, and features a long monologue from Deadpool (in conversation with the rhino), who breaks the fourth wall on occasion to discuss the show's fate.

"Do you think they cancelled the show cause of racism?" Donald Glover will also have a big year on the big screen with his role as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story, while the actor will also portray Simba in Disney's The Lion King. The references were pretty black, too. At one point Deadpool says, "It just feels like everyone wants something different, but no one wants to do anything different to get it". During the Television Critics Association summer tour in August, FX president John Landgraf made it clear that this series would be much different than the hit movie starring Ryan Reynolds, stating, the show had a, "different tone and editorial voice", but that was the last we heard about the show until its abrupt cancellation last week. Would you like to see more of the Deadpool animated series?
