Morena Baccarin

Morena Baccarin Cast as Female Lead in Deadpool Movie

Famous in Nerdom for Firefly, Homeland and most recently Gotham, Morena Baccarin may make a new splash in film in Ryan Reynold’s new Deadpool movie from Fox.

She is reportedly going to be Ryan Reynold’s love interest in the film.

Tim Miller is directing the film and it’s based on a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

Is this coming across like trying to shoehorn Deadpool, one of the quirkiest, most amoral, misanthropic comic book characters into a conventional action movie premise to anybody else besides me? I mean, THR report talks about how Baccarin’s character is going to “grapple with falling for a man with a hideously scarred face”. This is Deadpool we’re talking about here. It’s not like he’s famous for his heartthrob disposition despite his hideously scarred face.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for a trailer to see if this latest effort feels like an appropriate film adaptation.
