In a recent interview, FX CEO John Landgraf revealed that it was in fact Marvel that was responsible for the cancellation of Donald Glover’s animated Deadpool series.
Earlier this year, it was unexpectedly announced that Donald Glover and his brother Stephen were stepping away from the Deadpool animated series that they were developing for FX. The reasons were not immediately made clear beyond the usual creative differences excuse. Now, however, a more definitive reason may have been revealed.

During the summer press tour for Television Critic’s Association, FX CEO John Landgraf revealed that apparently Marvel wasn’t interested in the show that the two developed but didn’t say exactly why. The question came up when he was asked if there was a chance if the show would be revived on FX with Donald Glover:
No. I think that Marvel will revive it, because they have the rights. They own the IP and they have the rights to do an animated adult series based on any of the X-Men characters, and based on Deadpool specifically. They didn’t want to do the show that Donald and Stephen [Glover] wrote. We would have done show that Donald and Stephen wrote, but it wasn’t our decision. When Marvel decided not to do that show, we parted company with them as did Donald and Stephen. Now it’s totally up to them [Marvel] whether they hire someone else to do a different show.

20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition

So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
