Donald Glover Leaks the Script to His Canceled Animated FX Series ‘Deadpool’
Recently, it was announced that Donald Glover's Deadpool animated series had been scrapped by FX.
Well, Glover went on Twitter to explain that show wasn't killed because he was too busy to work on it, so anyone saying that was the case should dead that talk ASAP.
“for the record: I wasn’t too busy to work on Deadpool,” he wrote on Twitter- a site that he rarely visits.
Then, Glover proceeded to leak the finale of the series, which he was to write and executive produce with his brother Stephen Glover, who also works with him on his award-winning FX series, Atlanta, currently in its second season.
Hypbeast shares that the script finds Deadpool in Africa where he's taken a "Bitcoin-paid contract to protect the world’s last male northern white rhino, Sudan, who recently died in real-life."
In the leaked script, Deadpool breaks the fourth wall, and directly asks the audience why they think the series has been killed.
"Do you think they canceled the show because of racism?!” Deadpool asks Sudan.
Glover has previously talked about his experience getting Atlanta picked up by FX in an interview with The New Yorker.
“I knew what FX wanted from me,” Glover said. “They were thinking it’d be me and Craig Robinson”—the “Hot Tub Time Machine” actor—“horse-tailing around, and it’ll be kind of like ‘Community,’ and it’ll be on for a long time. I was Trojan-horsing FX. If I told them what I really wanted to do, it wouldn’t have gotten made.”
