Donald Glover Creating “Deadpool” Series
FX really knows what they have with
Childish Gambino Donald Glover.
After the rapper/actor/singer/screenwriter brought FX ratings success and industry awards with his hit show “Atlanta,” the network is tapping his midas touch to help bring a popular Marvel character to life on the small screen.
Daily Mail reports that Donald is teaming up with his brother and co-writer Stephen to create a ten-episode animated series about the misadventures of foul-mouthed superhero Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool.
No word yet on if Donald, who is a self-proclaimed black nerd/blerd and recently voiced Miles Mirales/Spider-Man in the ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ television show, will also voice Deadpool in the series.
FX president Nick Grad is particularly happy to team up with Gambino again, saying:
“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.”
Nice! Will you watch??
