FX's other collaboration with Marvel TV, live-action drama series Legion, is heading into its second season, which debuts April 3. Then, as is the character's custom, he starts breaking down the fourth wall. It's more "Ha ha, but I'm mad". And I rejoiced at the ultraviolent feature film that Fox delivered. As Deadline's Nellie Andreeva reported, there was indeed creative conflict between the Glover brothers and Marvel, which didn't like the scripts that had been written.

The actor had recently given an interview to The New Yorker in which he commented extensively on his relationship with FX while working on "Atlanta", a critically acclaimed show that has won two Golden Globes and two Emmys.

Just a few days ago, it was announced that Donald and Stephen Glover, who had signed aboard with FX to develop a Deadpool animated series, would not be moving forward with the project. Glover put all those rumors to rest, however, when he took to Twitter this morning about his involvement in the short-lived series.

Deadpool is being paid for his efforts in bitcoin, but he also takes his time to confide in the rhino. So perhaps he wasn't "too busy" for Deadpool, after all?

In typical Deadpool fashion, there are a lot of self-deprecating jokes and references to current events.

Britain Hails 'Turning Point' After Mass Expulsion Of Russian Diplomats
"It sends a very clear message to Russian Federation that it has costs", NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said . In retaliation, Moscow expelled an equal number of British diplomats and closed a British consular mission.


Donald Glover is not holding back.

POST CONTINUES BELOWI realized that my level of productive petty is NOWHERE NEAR Glover's. He really nailed Deadpool's foul-mouthed mayhem, which feels like a Wikipedia for mainstream freaks. Donald may have a packed CV, but it looks like he was more than happy to put the time into making Deadpool work. And this was right after the latest trailer for Deadpool 2 had hit the internet! Outside of his ugly skin and his penchant for violence, Deadpool's brain is so warped and zany, it's as if he's constantly connected to his Twitter timeline. The references were pretty black, too. (And we'd definitely watch this fake series.) Read the "Finale" in its entirety here.

In the script, Deadpool - the foul-mouthed, self-referential undead mercenary played by Ryan Reynolds in the movies based on the comic series - is hired to protect the world's last male Northern White Rhino, which in reality died last week.

"You know, I'm not made about this whole "cancelled" thing", Deadpool says at one point. I actually think it's a good thing. I think our show woulda been amusing. And this style of comedy isn't it.

He wrote: "I mean, I get it".
