The strange saga of Donald Glover and Marvel’s Deadpool got weirder as the writer-creator denied he was “too busy” for the project, and tweeted a full mock script. Now, Glover’s partner confirms references to a “Taylor Swift episode” were genuine, and a “last straw” for Marvel.
More and more, Marvel’s aborted Deadpool series with Donald Glover seems like a missed opportunity. New writer insight suggests the animated project sought to be as madcap as Rick and Morty, with leaked test footage that corroborates as much.
Deadpool might need to watch his back. IT, the latest adaptation of Stephen King’s horror epic, just broke one of the R-rated box office champ’s records — and is primed to break a couple more before the end of the weekend. It’s doubtful that Pennywise will come close to overtaking the Merc With a Mouth’s massive box office haul, but it’s quite a win for the new horror film from Andy Muschietti, which already has a sequel in the works for 2019.
