New Deadpool Images Feature Colossus, New Mutants, and Fight with Ajax
This holiday season is coming up Deadpool. After a new trailer, and a trailer breakdown from Tim Miller and Simon Kinberg, we have new official stills from the movie courtesy of EW and Empire, and they feature Colossus, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Angel Dust, and an epic fight scene with Ajax.

According to Skrein, the climactic fight scene between Deadpool and Ajax will be incredibly intense and brutal:

"Ryan's like Muhammad Ali, dancing around, whispering in my ear," Skrein said. "And I'm George Foreman. Every blow is like a haymaker and I just want to take his head off."

But the most exciting part of the new images is Negasonic Teenage Warhead sporting a New Mutants costume. Not only does this tie into the greater X-Men universe, it might signify a greater role for Brianna Hildebrand's awesomely named character going forward. The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone is currently working on a New Mutants movie, so it's possible that Negasonic Teenage Warhead will show up elsewhere in the franchise, although it's unclear whether any element of the R-rated Deadpool would fit into the kid-friendly X-Men universe:

Opening quote
"This film certainly works within the context of the X-Men universe," Reynolds said, "but it doesn't necessarily include the sensibilities of an X-Men movie. It's like taking an X-Men character, pumping him full of LSD and then releasing him back into the fold."
