Deadpool Cancellations - Donald Glover shares Finale script online
Deadpool the animated series set to be a companion series to the successful Deadpool film starring Ryan Reynolds was first announced last year. FX originally ordered a 10-episode run from Donald Glover and his brother Stephen as the creators of the series. But unfortunately for the fans and the people working on the series the series it will never make it to out TV screens.
"Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel's Deadpool animated series," the network said in a statement.
"FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue."
After the news many speculations have emerged about what the differences might be, including one about Donald Glover being too busy for the project.
Donald Glover first emerged on the scene on the popular show Community, and has gone on to create the Emmy-winning FX series Atlanta with his brother, as well as star in the series. He also came out with an award winning album in 2016 under his artist name Childish Gambino, as well as going on tour for the album in 2018 and working on his next and final album as Childish Gambino.
If that wasn't enough of a busy schedule, he is starring as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out later this year, so it is expected that he will be part of the press tour for the film later in 2018.
However, Donald Glover ended the rumours when he took to twitter to write a short and sweet tweet reading
Accompanied by a 14 page script for titled "Finale".
In the script, Deadpool talks with the rhino and wonders aloud why Marvel decided not to move forward with the show, asking if it could have been “cause of racism?!”
“All the writers were black,” he continues. “And the references were pretty black too. I heard they went over the lunch budget ordering Jamaican food at least once a week.”
“It just feels like everyone wants something different, but no one wants to do anything different to get it. Doesn’t Marvel have enough feel-good minority shows everyone supports but doesn’t watch? I mean, I think our show woulda been funny. I just wanted a place to be honest. And I guess that place is Freeform.”
The script takes repeated shots at Marvel, including a line that says the company “was trying to sell toys to 7-year-old boys and 50-year-old pedophiles.”
The entire script is included below.
