Another ‘Deadpool’ Character has Been Decided

by: S. Scott Stanikmas

Not one to let T.J. Miller be the only one to have fun on Twitter , actress Morena Baccarin tweeted a photo of her chair on the set of Deadpool, which is currently filming in Vancouver.

The actress has a chair with a character name of VANESSA on it, which almost certainly means Baccarin is playing Vanessa Geraldine Carlysle a.k.a. the mutant shape shifter Copycat.

Copycat made her debut alongside Deadpool in New Mutants #98, although she was posing as the mutant Domino at the time. Copycat was trying to infiltrate X-Force in order to kill their leader, the time-displaced mutant Cable. It wouldn’t be revealed that this was the case until years later, during Marvel’s Flashback Month, in the pages of Deadpool #-1.

The Tim Miller-directed film also stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular mutant Merc with a Mouth, Gina Carano and Ed Skrein.
