'Deadpool' movie news: Tim Miller discusses Negasonic Teenage Warhead

As a very generous Christmas treat to their fans, 20<sup>th Century Fox released on Christmas not one, but a duo of new trailers for their much awaited “Deadpool” film. Both trailer featured new footages from the film. One of the main highlights is the first look at Brianna Hildebrand’s character, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, in action using her abilities as a mutant.

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, “Deadpool” film director Tim Miller shared some insights and details on how the film changed and tweaked the powers and abilities of Negasonic Teenage Warhead. In the original comic books, the character’s power was purely psychic based. In the movie, she will be seen performing more action-packed moves.

“Her power, I mean, we chose her because we wanted a trainee for Colossus in the film, and the writers and I just fell in love with her name,” Miller told Empire. “It’s just so out there and so Deadpool and it was Grant Morrison who named her, so we knew we had to get her in there. And then we thought, well, we’re going to need to make her powers fit with who she feels like she is in the movie…”

Miller also talked about Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s relationship with The Merc With A Mouth. With her talkative and snappy vibe, how would Deadpool deal with her? Likewise, how would she deal with this mercenary who breaks the Fourth Wall?

“I think Deadpool wishes she’d keep her mouth shut more than she does in the film! Because she’s quite snarky,” Miller explained. “But, you know, her whole attitude is this disaffected teen who thinks Deadpool’s just a d********. And so that’s her whole attitude. She’s really not that silent in the film or at least she’s silently surly because she just can’t be bothered to engage with this a******. That’s the basic of her personality: silently shaming, judgmental personality.”

“Deadpool” will come to theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
