Negasonic Teenage Warhead And Yukio Are Coming Back For ‘Deadpool 3’

A Deadpool movie wouldn’t be a Deadpool movie without Negasonic Teenage Warhead. And for a while it looked as if Deadpool 3 might happen without Brianna Hildebrand’s morose, absurdly powerful X-Man. Well, lucky us, because not only will she be back, but so will her purple-haired girlfriend, Yukio, played by Shioli Kutsuna.

Deadline confirms the news of Hildebrand and Kutsuna’s returns for Deadpool 3. Negasonic Teenage Warhead debuted in the first movie alongside Colossus, and was instantly a punchline for her disaffected demeanor and ridiculous nuclear explosive powers. Yukio arrived in the sequel as Negasonic’s deadly, but quite bubbly, new girlfriend.

They join Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Morena Baccarin, Stefan Kapicic, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Rob Delaney, along with Emma Corrin and Mathew Macfadyen. Deadpool 3 opens on November 8th 2024, directed by Shawn Levy.
