'Deadpool': Negasonic Teenage Warhead Almost Looked Like This
The R-rated superhero adaptation Deadpool is a bona fide box office blockbuster, taking in $285.6 million domestically and $324.1 million internationally for a global total of $609.8 million worldwide.

As it turns out, this character almost looked much differently on the big screen, with concept artist sharing his early concept artwork for this mutant.

Fans have speculated that, based on her costume, Negasonic Teenage Warhead may be appearing in 20th Century Fox's X-Men spinoff The New Mutants, which is currently in development.

If you haven't seen Deadpool yet, you may be scratching your head, wondering why there is fan art depicting Pirates of The Caribbean star Keira Knightley as the older, tougher, rough, decidedly male character Cable. No, it has not been confirmed that the Deadpool team is pulling a fast one, gender-swapping yet another iconic Marvel comic book character. In the Ferris Bueller's Day Off-inspired end credit sequence, Ryan Reynolds arrives to promise that Cable will show up in Deadpool 2. But he's yet to be cast.

'Deadpool' Shatters Box Office Records with $135 Million
Predicting box office estimates is far from an exact science, as many films often come far above or far under expectations all the time. Weeks before 20th Century Fox's Deadpool hit theaters, early projections claimed the superhero adventure would take in between $55 million and $60 million on its opening weekend, and as we got closer to the release date, some predicted it could get as high as $80 million.
