    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.

    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.

    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.

    Jubilee. She's gotten hosed in the main X-Men verse.

    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.
