It Was Entirely Marvel's Decision To Scrap Donald Glover's Animated DEADPOOL Series, According To FX Boss

Many fans were disappointed to learn that Marvel and FX's animated Deadpool series wasn't moving forward, and now we know it was ultimately Marvel's decision to pass on the project not the cable network.

With an impressive resume that includes the acclaimed series Atlanta, and the recent success of the live-action films, fans were pretty excited to hear that Donald and Stephen Glover were developing an animated Deadpool show for FX.

However, hopes were dashed when it was announced back in March that the project had been scrapped. And while "creative differences" were officially cited as the cause for this decision, reports had come out suggesting the reasons were far more complicated than that.

But thanks to Deadline, who spoke to the CEO of FX, we now know that it was ultimately Marvel Television's decision to stop development.

"Marvel controls the IP and the decisions around the IP. It was their decision not to go forward with Donald and Stephen's version, I personally liked it," John Landgraf explained.

Landgraf also made a statement at the Television Critics Association press event (via Bleeding Cool), where he reiterated this point: "We would have done the show that Donald and Stephen wrote, but it wasn’t our decision."

In short, it definitely sounds like FX would have been more than happy to move forward with the Glover's Deadpool show, if they had complete control of the situation.
