    I'm actually the complete opposite. I honestly wish they would do more adult projects with Spider-Man :).

    But different opinions and all that ;).

    If I remember correctly the X-Men anime was TV-14, which isn't much worse than what you see in the movies. I'm expecting Deadpool to be closer to TV-MA, however.

    I would like if they got back Colossus, though.

    Here's the hard honest truth that most fans (especially SELFISH ADULT fans) don't want to admit. There is nothing inherently "adult" about characters like Wolverine and Deadpool. Sure a writer can write a story featuring them that contains profanity,sex,nudity,and blood and gore that would earn said story a "MATURE" rating. However, they could tell that exact same story minus the R rated content and still get their point across. Often times, those same fans who demand a more uncensored violent portrayal of Wolverine and DP are the same fans who want to know (and see depicted) the sex lives of their favorite superheroes. Characters like Wolverine and DP can be (and have been) shown being violent and killing lots of people in an all ages manner in the past for many years and the books sold much better back when they were suitable for all ages.

    While I have no problem with the TV-MA rating for this particular show, I still hope to see the character in more family friendly content just the same.

    Is there any sort of SDCC presence for this show that has been publicized?

    Nothing has been announced, as far as I know.

    My guess is they might wait until the New York Comic-Con in October for any updates, given this won't premiere until 2018.

    I also don't expect anything about this cartoon will be mentioned at the Marvel Animation panel.

    It's connected to Marvel Television rather than Marvel Animation and it's a co-production with Fox, so they'll take the reins. I think Fox handles all of the promotion for their projects.

    That should free them up creatively and 10 episodes sounds just right. I'm still curious whether it will lean more towards comedy or action comedy but I'm very optimistic so far.

    Not surprised to see Glover bringing in some of the crew from Altanta to work on this show...even if working on a Superhero cartoon is probably a lot different from a live-action comedy-drama :sweat:.

    Although maybe they're more similar then I give them credit for :p?

    I still haven't seen Atlanta but I've wanted to all year, especially after all of the praise that it got. I wasn't sure what Donald Glover was doing when he left Community to work on it but it seems to have paid off in a big way. I hope whatever they're doing right with that will rub off on this series.
