Morena Baccarin has been added to the cast of the upcoming Deadpool movie. Which is very good news indeed.
The former model turned actress has been appearing in TV's Gotham and Homeland in recent years, but she'll always have a special place in our hearts as part of the cast of Joss Whedon's Firefly. For the new feature, she'll be playing the female lead opposite Ryan Reynolds who is kind of falling for the scarred one - though it's probably not going to be that simple. She joins Gina Carano, TJ miller and Ed Skrein in the film, which is being directed by Tim Miller.
We never actually expected a standalone Deadpool movie to get made, at least while Reynolds was young enough to play the role, but it actually seems to be happening. The film will start production in March 2015 and will, all things going well, be in cinemas on Febuary 12th 2016.
