Thanks to having a worldwide blockbuster film to his name, Deadpool has become one of the most recognizable superheroes around. But he almost looked quite a bit different — as seen in new concept art that’s recently surfaced from an unused “Deadpool” pitch.
Back in 2013, “Kick-Ass 2” director Jeff Wadlow worked up a pitch for a “Deadpool” feature film and enlisted concept artist Kelton Cram — who worked as a concept artist on movies like “X-Men: First Class” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” — to create some mock-ups of the merc’s suit.
ComicBook.com has an interview with Cram about the work, which he called Deadpool’s “origin suit.”
“We wanted to try a completely new direction with the suit,” said Cram. “More of an origin suit — a self-made, makeshift suit made from motorcycle gear. As with most origin stories, this suit would go through a transition, eventually becoming something closer to the one he wears in the comics (much like the suit Blur created for Ryan Reynolds).”
The interview also revealed that the film would have seen Deadpool fight the Marauders, although whether or not Mister Sinister would have been part of the film remains unclear. The third design above, the one that’s decidedly not of Wade Wilson, is actually for the character Random, who would’ve been in the film as a member of the Marauders.
