Over the course of the past few years, Deadpool has grown from a comic book/video game fan favorite to a mainstream favorite character. Of course, the 2016 film is largely responsible for this, as it finally allowed Canadian star Ryan Reynolds to give a faithful interpretation of the Merc of a Mouth that was accessible for casual fans, and this year’s Deadpool 2.
But the sequel wasn’t the only Deadpool-related project in the works for a while. Readers will remember that actor Donald Glover was hard at work developing an animated series that would bring the character to FXX. However, this show was famously canceled, which led to Glover releasing the script pages for a supposed episode (Which I’m pretty sure he wrote overnight).
But what does Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld have to say about this?
“I thought the whole thing was brilliant. And I really can’t say anything more than that or I’ll get into all sorts of trouble from every side. But I mean, I mourn the loss of that entire project. Donald is a genius, and I’ll always wonder how that would have worked out. But Marvel says: ‘Rob, good things are coming.’ And good things have always come, so I’m gonna believe them and hang on for dear life.”
This is no huge surprise. Liefeld has always been Deadpool’s biggest cheerleader in every form, and you could do a whole lot worse than Donald Glover leading a new iteration of the character. Plus, if that script was any indication, it was quite a loss for fans.
