Studio ADI released a video showing a bunch of concept art images of what Wade "Deadpool" Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) could have looked like in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). Some are weird, and some are bizarre, but all are brilliant.
Check out the rest of the images after the jump and click to enlarge.
They describe the video this way:
"Here, in quick succession, are 82 variations on Deadpool. It was our job to satisfy the many creative voices on the show, from director Gavin Hood to the Producers and Studio, so we generated a huge selection of artwork from complete direction changes to subtle variations like tweaks to eye color. This is why having a design phase at the start of preproduction is so valuable. We'll never satisfy everyone with a design, but an exploratory like this lets us consider the options."
The designs are by special makeup effects designers and Studio ADI founders Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr.
Here are some stills from the video and what the finished make-up looked like.

Heroic Hugh Jackman breathes the fire into Wolverine -- with a vengeance! This pulse-pounding action thriller sinks razor-sharp adamantium claws into the mysterious origins of Logan/Wolverine: his epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed/Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), and the ominous Weapon X program that unleashes his primal fury.
