    I could see Gabrielle Kinney being a fun one to bounce off of Deadpool. For some reason I keep on thinking of Crosta.

    When I first heard about the role I thought they were going to choose x-23 especially given deadpools obsession with logan.

    Jubilee or Boom Boom would've been a fun replacement. I can definitely see Jube's having the character traits that NTW had in that movie if they did a "modern take" on her character.
    Please bring back any Wolverine.

    You're absolutely right. Cannonball is a moody, sarcastic teenage girl. I can't believe how I missed that. I always thought he was a genuine, hardworking, kind Kentucky mountain boy. But you're right, this is just Cannonball with a different name. Hell, Negasonic Teenage Warhead was even flying like Cannonball.

    I kind of want an X-Force movie to have both of them play off of each other. It would really be a lot of fun.

    They said it themselves. They were going to use Cannonball but then they found the name and "loved it".

    They replaced CB with NTW which you can clearly see in the movie because she has his powers.

    And even if they had gone with a male version by name of Sam Guthrie, he's almost certainly still be a moody, sarcastic teenager of unknown geographic origins.
    So this Zealot comes to my door, all glazed eyes and clean reproductive organs, asking me if I ever think about God. So I tell him I killed God. I tracked God down like a rabid dog, hacked off his legs with a hedge trimmer, and boiled off his corpse in an acid bath. So he pulls an alternating-current taser on me and tells me that only the Official Serbian Church of Tesla can save my polyphase intrinsic electric field, known to non-engineers as "the soul". So I hit him. What would you do?

    It's been a while but I'm pretty sure that I read way back when that they changed it because Cannonball was earmarked for the New Mutants movie in development and off limits.

    So the name was but not the powers?

    Jubilee. She's gotten hosed in the main X-Men verse.
    "But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you... And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye?..."

    Yeah, Jubilee or Boom-Boom could have nicely filled the role, both in sass/attitude and powers/pyrotechnics.

    But I don't mind the choice they made, because the actress sold it (and the dialogue was great).

    I would have found jubilee too cute and sugary. the film needed more of a hard female character. so NTW or Armor or Paige Guthrie.

    I don't think comics Jubilee would have been, fwiw. That being said, she's best when she's overly 90s.

    Boom Boom (for the explosives plus mild name recognition plus X-Force connection), Monet (if you wanted a stoic/snarky and over-powered sidekick), or Armor.
