Ever since production on Deadpool began, we've gotten little tidbits of information on the Marvel film from 20th Century Fox starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with the Mouth. The first photo showed off Deadpool in an alluring pose, Reynolds revealed the film is R-rated, and co-star Ed Skrein confirmed that he's playing the villain Ajax. And now we have another glimpse at the forthcoming comic book flick, and it reveals a character that comic book fans should be excited to see. Brianna Hildebrand plays Negasonic Teenage Warhead, a telepath with precognitive abilities, named after a song by Monster Magnet. Look now!
Here's the new photo from Tim Miller's Deadpool from Ryan Reynolds' Twitter:

Deadpool is directed by visual effects veteran Tim Miller, making his feature directing debut, with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Ryan Reynolds reprises the titular character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary known for his or his sarcastic, talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall. The film will alsoinclude T.J. Miller ("Silicon Valley), Morena Baccarin ("Homeland"), Gina Carano (Haywire) and Ed Skein (The Transporter Refueled). Production is now underway and 20th Century Fox releases it next year February 16th, 2016.
