Ryan Reynolds is clearly as excited about making ‘Deadpool‘ as we are to watch it and his latest set photo introduces us to Negasonic Teenage Warhead! The character is being played by newcomer Brianna Hildebrand whose acting credits include movies that have yet to be released so we have no idea what kind of talent she has up her sleeves. At the very least she can pull off the unimpressed gothy mutant vibe in this teaser image.
Here, check out what she looks like in character below really quick!

Warhead is the ridiculous mutant name for Ellie Phimister who is just as much the goth mutant on page and is looks like she’ll be on screen. I’m just curious as to how they’ll have her powers look when she finally unleashes them.
Introduced in 2001 by Grant Morrison, Warhead was one of the residents of Genosha who met a violent end at the hands of a Sentinel invasion. Her mutant gift tends to fall in with being a telepath who has minor precognitive abilities. I doubt they’ll be covering much of the events on Genosha in this film. Of course with Deadpool being dead in the current comics, nothing really should be surprising at this point. While alive, Negasonic Teenage Warhead was a rather minor character so it’ll be interesting to see how they expand upon her and have her interact with the Merc with the Mouth!
What are your thoughts on using a lesser known mutant who has been dead for awhile in the comics for ‘Deadpool’? Are you a Negasonic Teenage Warhead fan that is excited to actually have her be used for a change? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, ‘Deadpool’ tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade WIlson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
‘Deadpool’ is set for release on February 12, 2016. The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Gina Carano, T. J. Miller, Ed Skrein and Morena Baccarin and will be directed by Tim Miller from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
