Following yesterday’s new Deadpool image, another one has found its way online. This latest image features Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and his cohort Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). We first got a look at NTW a couple months ago when Reynolds shared an image on Twitter, but we still don’t know much about how she’ll factor into the movie. In the comics, she’s a mutant (remember, 20th Century Fox gets to use that word because they own X-Men) who has telepathic powers. As for her unusual alias, it comes from the Monster Magnet song of the same name.
We don’t know how Ms. Warhead will factor into the plot or if she’ll even employ telepathy, but with her apparently dour demeanor, she could at least be a good foil for the bubbly, loquacious Deadpool. Perhaps we’ll get a better idea of their relationship when 20th Century Fox has their Comic-Con panel next Saturday.
Check out the new Deadpool image below. Directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool opens February 12, 2016, and also stars Ed Skrein as Ajax, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, and T.J Miller as Weasel.
Here’s the official synopsis for Deadpool:
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.
