It was announced last May that Donald Glover would be spearheading an animated Deadpool series to premiere on FX Networks' comedy-focused FXX. But that turned out to be too good to be true as the network announced the cancellation due to "creative differences."

"Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel's Deadpool animated series," the network said in a statement Saturday. "FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue."

It's notable that FX needed to clarify that the failed Deadpool deal hasn't completely soured Marvel on the network.

It's unknown whether or not Marvel and Glover will try to shop the project around, but as Deadpool is owned by Fox, the only other TV network available besides FX is 20th Century Fox TV.
