Good news, Deadpool fans!

Not only did TJ Miller recently more-or-less confirm that he's playing the fan-favorite sidekick Weasel in the upcoming Deadpool movie via a Tweet, but it looks as though the movie's cast have all gone a little Twitter-crazy, and started firing off on-set pictures like there's no tomorrow.

The latest to do so - and to, in the process, pretty solidly confirm exactly who she'll be playing in the movie? Morena Baccarin.

That's right, the Firefly and Homeland alum just posted an image of her brand new on-set seating arrangements, and they just so happen to come with a pretty huge reveal...

Yup, that's right - Baccarin'll be playing a character named Vanessa, and as all devoted Deadpool fans know, that's pretty much guaranteed to be a certain Miss Vanessa Carlyle...

a.k.a., Copycat.

A longtime, shape-shifting love interest of Deadpool's - a role she'll likely play in the movie, too - Copycat's Marvel history has long been tied to the Merc with a Mouth's. She's flirted with both super-heroism and super-villainy, though has far more of a moral code than the distinctly clinically insane Deadpool.

That doesn't mean they don't love each other, though...

One of the most intriguing aspects of Copycat's powers - should they end up the same as they are in the comics, at any rate... she can alter her body on a molecular level - meaning that if she's able to touch a fellow mutant, she can actually mimic all of their powers and brain patterns, to the point where even an advanced telepath can't tell her apart from the original.

So, like Mystique, then - only way more powerful.

And, now, it seems, set to be played by the ever-awesome Morena Baccarin.

Begin overexcitement...right about now.

What do you reckon, though? Is Copycat the right call for Deadpool? Is Morena Baccarin well cast? And just who else can we expect to see?
