That’s right folks everyone’s fave Companion, and current Gotham-ite, Morena Baccarin has been cast as love interest in to Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.
The role was being called “Lindsay” for casting purposes, but it’s safe to say that’s probably just an alias, is described as
“Smart, tough, beautiful but a little bit broken. Nothing has ever been easy for her and she’s developed a thick skin and cynical outlook. But she’s not a victim—she may not have a great life but she’s holding it together and does what she needs to get by. She’s got a great sense of humor but it leans heavily towards irony and sarcasm.”
So the question really becomes, who is Lindsay? Some wonder if she will be Shiklah, Queen of The Undead, who recently married our Darling Deadpool. However, as this is most likely an origins tale, Lindsay is more likely a cover for Vanessa Carlyle, who is known as Copycat in the comics. Copycat was a blue skinned shape-shifting mutant, who was working as a prostitute when she met Wade Wilson. It wouldn’t be the first time FOX gave us a blue skinned shape-shifting mutant, or even Morena as a um…companion. Go with what you know FOX.
Of course, “Lindsay” could be someone entirely different. She could be just a regular human, we’ll just have to wait and see.
