When it comes to Deadpool, the hits just don't stop! Today, star Ryan Reynolds has shared a first look at Brianna Hildebrand as the X-Men mutant Negasonic Teenage Warhead. The actress was confirmed for the role at the tale end of March, and is clearly being used to tie this latest Marvel comic book adventure into the X-Men franchise. About the character, Ryan Reynolds declares:
"Negasonic Teenage Wat-The-Shit?!?quote
Negasonic Teenage Warhead is a telepath with precognitive powers. She was created for Marvel by Scottish comic book writer, playwright and occultist Grant Morrison, and quickly killed off. No further details about Brianna Hildebrand's character or role in the movie have been revealed at this time. She was first introduced in New X-Men Vol. 1 #115, and was a student of Emma Frost. She was also a member of the Hellfire Club. And the character was, in fact, named after the Monster Magnet song 'Negasonic Teenage Warhead'. She will also be joined in Deadpool by X-Men Colossus, though he has yet to be cast.
In Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds will play an assassin who is dying of cancer. He undergoes a procedure that leaves him twisted and scarred, but also imbued with superpowers. It is speculated that he will be exposed as part of a new Weapon X program that is being rebooted in this storyline following the events seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Brianna Hildebrand is known for her Annie Undocumented web series, which won best web series at the 2014 New York TV Festival. She is also a singer who independently produced her first album.
