According to Deadline, FX Pulls the Plug On Marvel’s Deadpool Animated TV Series From Donald Glover.
I wonder if these "creative differences" had anything to do with the Disney/Fox deal ?
Soooo..., I'm guessing it's not premiering in May anymore?

Just as well. It's not like I didn't already have too much crap to watch.
I bet they're saving it for the disney streaming service.
And they will make the show more kid/all ages friendly (which can be done while maintaining the character's core traits and without duming him down and over sanitizing the him).
Yup. More reasons why Marvel is bad for Deadpool. And people still clam that Disney can do an R-rated Deadpool movie..lol when Marvel tv, makers of the Netflix shows want to dumb him down.
I pray for that Disney/FOX deal to be blocked somehow everyday..
It won't be on the Disney streaming service. That service is going to be served for broader ranged shows.
Also, the Disney/Fox merger isn't even complete yet. So they can't even make those kind of decisions yet.
Some comments from Donald Glover, including a sample of a script for the animated series. Possibly NSFW and language warning.
I love it. It is hysterical.
Titmouse put the animation test up from their rejected pitch. It's TV-MA (redband) content (language, violence) , so please click at your own discretion.
*edit* The video is no longer online.
Looks pretty good to me.
It's a little weird thinking that, even if the show was still in production, we still wouldn't get exactly that since they picked another animation studio.
On a side-note, it appears the Tweet with the script Donald Glover shared has been deleted.
LOL the animation test was already taken down.
I guess somebody wants to downplay what happened to this cartoon...
I'm not surprised that it's down now (I'm more surprised that it went up) but I always love catching glimpses of animation tests and stuff like that. I don't expect this to do what the leaked CGI test from Blur did years ago but after now knowing that an animated series for Deadpool was a possibility, I really hope that it is something that could happen someday.

I'm kind of bummed that they just used voice clips from Reynolds in the movie for the test footage. It would've been really cool if they had brought back Nolan North to do some new lines here .
You can still find it online if you look hard enough and if you know where to look.
If the DP show is R rated, it won't be on the Disney streaming service. If it is an all ages TV-Y7 series, it will most likely air on the Disney streaming service.
Mod Note: Video removed. Please don't link to any such videos if they do not come from an official channel.
There's no way a Deadpool animated series would ever be TV-Y7 unless it was some sort of ultra meta parody.
Sure it can. DP's appeared in the USM cartoon is proof that DP could be done as an all ages cartoon without watering the character down in regards to his personality. Heck, they could even have him using his sword on the bad guys but in a tasteful non graphic/non blood and gore manner (which is something that has been done in past TV-Y7 cartoons).
I would argue that Deadpool absolutely was watered down in his USM appearence. Deadpool is more than just a walking joke-machine, since there is this undeniable disturbing side to him. Sure, for a one-off guest role it is OK to not bring it up, but on his own show it would be kinda lame, if he was just a slightly more violent Spider-Man.
