The script fittingly titled "Finale", is the ideal fourth wall-breaking commentary for a Deadpool series and just makes us even sadder that Glover won't get to create an actual series. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue. Even more surprisingly, he shared an actual script from the show, one that was quite possibly tweaked after FX decided not to pursue the show as Deadpool mentions cancellation on two separate occasions.
Posting a script from the proposed finale of the show, Glover proved that the series was much further along than first thought. But since we know nearly nothing about what the animated Deadpool series would have been, who's to say that the finale wouldn't have involved the superhero hanging out with an endangered rhino named Sudan?
Do you think they canceled the show because of racism?! Deadpool asks Sudan, who never responds, because he's a rhino. And the references were pretty black too.
With this animated series now dead and gone, the next place to see the Deadpool character will be in Deadpool 2, a sequel to the 2016 live-action Deadpool film starring Ryan Reynolds, which hits theaters May 18.More news: Former Catalan Education Minister Ponsati Going to Surrender to UK Authorities

It was widely speculated that Donald Glover would be too busy to fully commit to the project.
"It just feels like everyone wants something different, but no one wants to do anything different to get it", Deadpool says. The whole thing reads kind of like the ideal version of Animaniacs for adults, which is some of the highest praise I can think of and exactly what I'd want from a Deadpool series specifically.
