Donald Glover making a 'Deadpool' cartoon for adults

Put the kids to bed early for this one. The Merc with a Mouth will be animated, but that doesn't mean he's going G-rated.

Like the 2016 movie, this animated Deadpool will not be for kids.

Marvel

Remember when cartoons were mostly for kids? Not anymore. On Wednesday, Marvel and FXX announced a new animated "Deadpool" TV series helmed by Donald Glover -- for adults, which makes sense if you saw the 2016 Ryan Reynolds movie.

"Donald Glover is an incredibly gifted and versatile artist who'll bring the untitled Marvel's Deadpool series to life with the same intense, singular vision as his breakout hit Atlanta," Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX, said in a statement.

Glover, of course, is the Golden Globe-winning creator of "Atlanta," the highest-rated comedy in FX Networks' history. He's also playing young Lando Calrissian in the untitled Han Solo solo movie coming in May 2018. He'll serve as showrunner along with his brother Stephen Glover, who also worked on "Atlanta."

No details on voice casting or a premiere date have yet been released.
