While it hasn't been officially confirmed that Deadpool has started shooting just yet, we now that some of the cast have arrived on the Vancouver, Canada set. T.J. Miller made his presence known this morning when he officially confirmed that he is playing sidekick and arms dealer Weasel. Later this afternoon, star Ryan Reynolds showed off the movie's cool logo. And now, Morena Baccarin is offering her own tease from the set, seemingly confirming that she will play Vanessa.
Who is Vanessa? Most assuredly, this love interest for Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson is fan-favorite from the Marvel comics Vanessa Geraldine Carlysle. She is also known by her Mutant name Copycat. A shapeshifter, the character was created by Fabian Nicieza and Joe Madureira and made her first-ever debut alongside Deadpool's first appearance in New Mutants #98. In the issue, we first meet Vanessa after she has shapeshifter into other fan-favorite character named Domino and infiltrated the X-Force, set on a mission to kill the mutant team's leader Cable. Her identity wasn't actually revealed until several years later during Marve's 'Flashback Month'. Copycat's full origin story was then told in the pages of Deadpool #1.
Along with Weasel and Copycat, we also know that X-man Colossus will appear in the movie, though he has yet to be cast. We'll also get to see MMA fighter Gina Carano as Angel Dust. While Ed Skrein has been confirmed as part of the cast, his character has not yet been unvieled, but certainly could be very shortly. There's no telling what else we may get from the set in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out Morena Baccarin's tweet as she screams out, 'Let's do this!' for all of social media to hear:
