Concept Art For Scrapped DEADPOOL Movie Reveals A Completely Different Look For The Merc With A Mouth

Back in 2013, Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow was working on a pitch for his own take on the Merc With a Mouth's big-screen adventures, and enlisted the help of artist Kelton Cram to put together some Deadpool mock-ups.

As you can see from the images below, the concept designs were pretty cool, but vastly different to the character's comic book duds and the costume Ryan Reynolds would eventually wear in Fox's R-rated blockbuster. The other character (Yes, that's Stone Cold Steve Austin) is Random (a.k.a. Marshall Evan Stone III), who would have appeared as one of The Mauraders in the film.

Do you think any of these would have worked as an early attempt at a suit? You can find out more by checking out Comicbook.com's interview with the artist.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Deadpool is out on Blu-ray and DVD now.
