There has been a new casting announcement for the upcoming "Deadpool" film!

Morena Baccarin, known for her roles on Firefly, Homeland, V, Stargate SG-1, and most recently a recurring role on Gotham, has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming Ryan Reynolds-starring X-Men tie-in. She was on a shortlist for the unnamed role along with Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf), Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Red Band Society), and Jessica de Gouw (Arrow).

As mentioned above, the role she is playing has not been announced, other than it being the female lead, but based on a leaked casting call people around the web assume that she will be playing mutant and former prostitute Vanessa Carlyle, also known as Copycat, who has been one of Deadpool's only love interests.

In my opinion, I would rather see her play Domino, a fellow X-Force member of Deadpool's and Cable's love interest, as she definitely looks the part, but this is most probably not going to happen because as far as I know Domino has never been in love with Wade Wilson.

This announcement comes merely days after MMA star Gina Carano was announced to be playing Angel Dust and T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein were cast in unnanounced roles as well (Miller is assumed to be Deadpool's sidekick Weasel while Skrein will most likely be playing Garrison Kane, Deadpool's usual antagonist).

Deadpool releases February 12, 2016; Directed by Tim Miller from a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick; Starring Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern, X-Men Origins Wolverine, The Voices), Gina Carano, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, and Ed Skrein.
