Donald Glover, FX and Marvel TV have parted ways on their plans to develop an animated "Deadpool" series due to "creative differences.
The news was confirmed Saturday, nearly one year after the animated project received a 10-episode order for FX's sister channel FXX; however, the network reassured viewers it would continue to work with Marvel TV on the live-action series Legion, which will return for its second season next week.
"Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel's Deadpool animated series," the network said in a statement. "FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue."
The series, based on the popular Marvel anti-hero, was to be produced by ABC Signature Studios and Marvel TV in association with FX Productions. The Glover brothers were going to act as writers, executive producers, and showrunners.
The series was schedule to premiere in 2018. It's currently unclear if Marvel TV and ABC Studios will still pursue the show—"with or without the Glovers."
