Actor/showrunner/rapper extraordinaire Donald Glover was tapped by FXX to create a Deadpool animated series, before the network suddenly and inexplicably scrapped the idea.

FX said in a statement the decision was mutually made by the network, Marvel and Glover due to "creative differences," but many assumed Glover was just caught up working on Season 2 his other FX series, Golden Globe-winning Atlanta. 

But Glover is calling bullshit. "For the record: I wasn't too busy to work on Deadpool," he announced in a rare tweet.

Glover then shared 15 pages of a first script on Twitter, which sees Deadpool traveling to Africa to save the near-extinct white rhino. He even worked in a dig that FX may have scrapped the idea due to racism.

"Do you think they canceled the show because of racism?!" Deadpool asks in the script. "Yeah, all the writers were black. The references were pretty black, too. I heard they went over lunch budget ordering Jamaican food at least once a week." 

Marvel may be moving along with the idea of an animated show, but neither Glover nor FX will be involved... to say the least.

You won't have to wait much longer for the next movie. Deadpool 2 hits theaters May 18, 2018.
