Deadpool 2: Morena Baccarin on whether we'll see Copycat

Sorry to break it to you, but there are currently no concrete plans to feature Vanessa Carlysle's alternate ego Copycat in Deadpool 2, at least according to Morena Baccarin, the woman responsible for bringing the character to life. "Obviously everyone wants to see Copycat," she told CinemaBlend. "I have no idea if that's something they have in the works or not."

Copycat is an X-Force member with the power of shapeshifting, but it appears that the film's Vanessa doesn't have that ability (or at least, it hasn't been revealed yet). Deadpool 2 isn't going into production until this summer, so it's possible that Baccarin just doesn't know that she's suiting up yet, or she's been told to keep it quiet to leave some mystery around the film. However, with Cable and Domino already being confirmed to join Deadpool in fighting crime, it could be that giving Vanessa an alter-ego this early in the franchise would just result in superhero overload. It also seems that, if that was the path the character is to go down, it would have been teased at least slightly in the original movie to make it seem possible in the sequel.

Vanessa will have plenty to do in the sequel, even if she isn't given shapeshifting powers. "I would love to see the evolution of that character, and how she becomes that," Baccarin said of what she'd like to see for Vanessa in the follow-up film. "I also think it's very interesting to see the relationship with her and Wade and the whole thing. His whole demeanor changing. And just how they continue their relationship." Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have promised that, even with the new characters, Wade and Vanessa's relationship will remain at the forefront of the film, saying, "Deadpool at the core was a love story and an emotional story, and we wanted to bring the audience to that same place in a different way on the sequel."

Whether or not we get to see Vanessa as Copycat, Deadpool 2, due out at some point in 2018, is sure to be great. Here are all the reasons we think the movie will blow everyone away.
