Remember that Deadpool movie that's coming out next year? The one that seems to be getting buried under the Marvel and DC movie news? Well, looks like they just added an... interesting cast member, to say the least.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gina Carano (Fast Five) will be joining the cast, starring opposite Ryan Reynolds, who will be starring as the merc with the mouth.

Carano has signed on for the role of Angel Dust, who, in the comics, was part of the underground mutant group known as Morlocks, but it is unclear how her character will fit into the context of the film.

Reynolds will star as the mercenary who is dying of cancer and gets an operation done to cure him, but instead he ends twisted, scarred, and embedded with superpowers.

This is interesting, to say the least, since Carano isn't exactly known for her acting. She is however known for kicking ass and being a bad ass, so as long as there is plenty of that in the film, then this casting should work.

T.J. Miller has also been signed on for an unspecified comedic role, and for all of the X-Men fan boys out there, Colossus is also set to make an appearance in the film.

The film is currently eyeing a March shooting start date, with Tim Miller set to direct. It will be released on February 12th, 2016.
