"You know, I'm not mad about this whole" canceled "thing." Deadpool tells Sudan. "I really think it's a good time to have a violent, gun-loving white man scolding on TV – unlike the PRESIDENT!" The Merc is considering whether "they only want to sell toys" or " He quits, "Yes, but all the authors were black, and the references were pretty black too." I heard they went over the lunch budget at least once a week and ordered Jamaican food. "
The character continues," It just feels like everyone wants something different, but nobody wants to do anything else. "Marvel does not have enough feel-good minority shows that everyone supports, but not watching, I mean, I think our show would have been funny, I just wanted a place to be honest, and I think this place is Freeform. "
Glover's Deadpool also contains a clue to the scandal from Beyoncé. ("Sanaa Lathan bit Beyonce's face! Wait, oh god thank, it was Jennifer Lawrence, I hate her already, it's alright.")
FXX develops Deadpool: The Animated Series – so Glover's script is said to start as a 10-episode season with a first goal this year. It is unclear if Marvel will choose to keep this project alive. Regardless, Glover does not fight for work. His show Atlanta won several Emmys and Golden Globes, while in Solo: A Star Wars Story will be seen on the big screen as Lando Calrissian. He will then be heard on the big screen as Simba in Jon Favreau's The Lion King .
Reps for Glover and FX did not comment. Marvel did not respond to EW's request for comments.
