    Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool

    Best Known For: Van Wilder, Just Friends, Green Lantern

    Comedic actor, Ryan Reynolds first played The Merc with The Mouth in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Unfortunately, the movie did nothing to capture the essence of Marvel's Deadpool. Literally, taking away his mouth in the final act, the script barely utilized Reynolds' comedic talent, and is often maligned by fans.

    This production is already leagues ahead of that 2009 disaster.

    Best Known For: Firefly, Gotham, Homeland

    With a huge cult following for her work on Firefly, V, and Gotham, Morena Baccarin joins the cast as the shape-shifting mutant Copycat. Known as Vanessa Carlysle, we expect her to be disguised as a human love-interest for the majority of the film, before breaking out her bad-ass merc skills in the third act.

    Let's just hope she stays away from refrigerators...

    Best Known For: Haywire, Fast & Furious 6, kicking ass with Muay Thai

    Former MMA fighter, Gina Carano will play the mutant Morlock, Angel Dust. If you didn't know, The Morlocks are a group of outcast mutants who live under the streets of Chicago (like mole people). Angel Dust has the power to change her adrenal levels at will, granting her an additional boost of strength, speed and stamina: a perfect role for Carano.
