Negasonic Teenage Warhead Cast For DEADPOOL


According to The Hollywood Reporter, newcomer Brianna Hildebrand has joined the cast of Deadpool as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, a character who was created (and swiftly killed off) by Grant Morrison during his New X-Men run. She would later reappear when Joss Whedon was writing Astonishing X-Men as a psychic projection created by Emma Frost. The character is a telepath with precognitive abilities, and Hildebrand joins a cast which also includes Monica Baccarin, Gina Carano, and T.J. Miller. According to the site, the actress is "undergoing physical and stunt training", so it could be that she ends up having a major role in the movie.

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.
