"Deadpool" Stall-Out

A few hiccups have happened with getting an animated version of Deadpool on the air:

FX is not going forward with its Marvel’s Deadpool animated adult action-comedy series, from Atlanta creator/executive producer/star Donald Glover and writer Stephen Glover. ...

“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 Saturday. “FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue.” ...

The Deadpool franchise is controlled by Fox ... which means it's (shortly) to be controlled by the House of Mouse. And the one thing of which you can be certain with Disney? The international conglomerate knows how to squeeze maximum dollars out of a franchise.

So look for an animated version of Deadpool to hit airwaves or internet (maybe both) in the not-distant future. There's intellectual property to be explited, and profits to be made!
