While X-Men Origins: Wolverine has come and gone as we pass over the opening peak of the summer movie season, there’s a ton to look forward for the X-Men franchise.

As we already know, X-Men: First Class, Deadpool and a Wolverine sequel are all in the works for Fox Studios and their X-Men franchise. Two of which (possibly all three) are spinoffs or will be connected to last month’s Wolverine origin flick. Because of that, what we have for you today is still relevant.

The following images are concept art for some of the support characters in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. They depict exactly what Live Schreiber’s Sabretooth character looked like on screen and some early variations of what Ryan Reynold’s character could have looked like as Wade Wilson and as Weapon XI (Deadpool).

The art is by Phillip Boutte Jr. and Jerad S Marantz, take a look and see what you think [Click to enlarge]:

The Weapon XI post-augmentation images are a little extreme but would have worked on screen if that character wasn’t one and the same as Deadpool [insert sad face]. If that were some clone or other experiment who was fed a bunch of mutant powers, I would of dug it as he looks freaky as hell and would make for a cool villain in the final confrontation.

As for the pre-augmentation image of Deadpool/Wade Wilson, it looks cool too. You can see the resemblance to the modern Deadpool costume from the comics mixed with a mercenary outfit. Seeing this makes me wonder why they went so overly simple with what Reynolds wore in the film.

Either way, it may hint at something he could wear at some point in the Deadpool solo flick that he’s currently planning. The Canadian star confirmed that we will see the infamous red-and-black costume in the film and that it will closely follow the comics – just as he wanted all along leading up to the release of Wolverine.

I think the concept art is pretty cool and I think Ryan Reynolds is more cool. With him in charge of the project (at least seemingly for now), I have hope for this movie even though the last two X-Men films by Fox have let me down.

What do you think of the images and of Deadpool?

  1. Beak looks almost passable, but too scary. Doesn’t really have that ackward, rickety, pitiable overgrown baby bird look.
    But Dominic Monaghan would have been great as Beak. Why did they change his character exactly?

  2. A clone… if only that was so.

    Who knows, they might still retcon it.

  3. there is a really cool concept pic of beak by jerad merants who did the blue deadpool one and it is just as great he really should be added to the films as well as chamber,sinister,apocalypse,glob herman,andgel salvador,and husk. the sentinel sotry should be done as well,maybe one day when marvel gets it back we will have some great stories again like x-1,and x-2,then again companies and things change.

  4. I hope the director of Deadpool movie,fix that, and make the other one from Wolverine, as clone, the real one just escaped from the island

  5. that beak looks awesome beak and chamber should be in the next film
