Disney Possibly Developing an R-Rated Animated Deadpool Series for Streaming. Since he acquisition of Fox by Disney, there have been a multitude of film and television projects that have been cancelled, delayed, or managed to maintain the green light throughout the transition. Now, it seems Disney is looking over the shelved projects at Fox and is preparing to dust off a few ideas!
One such project involves an animated series about the “Marc with a Mouth”, Marvel’s very own Deadpool! The original series idea came from Fox’s team at FX, who intended to have the series be Rated R. Surprisingly, it seems Disney is onboard with the rating for the animated show and wants Ryan Reynolds to maintain his role as Wade Wilson/Deadpool across the live-action and animated platforms.
It is currently unknown if Disney will keep the same creators for the project. Donald and Stephen Glover were set to write and produce the series, with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory assisting in the series, (likely for character continuity and story building). Initial “creative differences” kept the project from moving forward, but it seems Disney is willing to revisit the idea for one of their streaming services.
Disney has yet to confirm the new series, but it is rumored the R-Rated Deadpool series will premiere exclusively on either Disney’s Hulu or Star streaming services (most likely Hulu). This is a developing story, so be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney and Marvel!
