Morena Baccarin Will Play Copycat in DEADPOOL

Morena Baccarin was cast as the female lead in the long-brewing Deadpool movie, but now we know which character she will be playing.

According to a tweet from Baccarin, she’s playing a character named Vanessa, which pretty much has to be Vanessa Carlysle, also known as Copycat, a shapeshifting mutant in the Marvel comics universe. Copycat has a pretty complicated history, but she started out as a Boston prostitute who met and fell in love with Wade Wilson before he became involved with the Weapon X program.

Deadpool is filming now, and will arrive in theaters on February 12th, 2016.
