Ryan Reynolds, star of the forthcoming film Deadpool 2, says he was disappointed to hear that the Deadpool animated series had been cancelled.
Back in March, it was revealed that FX had cancelled the show written by Donald and Stephen Glover over creative differences. Despite the fact it would have been very different from Fox's Deadpool film franchise, Reynolds was sad to see it go.
As part of a recent profile at the New York Times, the actor was asked about his feelings on the fate of the animated series. He may not have been involved in production, but he did seem to be disappointed in the lost opportunity. Viewing the creator of Atlanta as something of a genius, Reynolds told the Times "I would’ve loved to have seen what he did with that."
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable and Julian Dennison as Russell. The film hits theaters on May 18.
