Deadpool: Morena Baccarin Confirmed As Copycat


Deadpool star Morena Baccarin seems to have confirmed her role as Wade Wilson's shapeshifting mutant love interest Copycat.

The photo, first posted by Baccarin, shows her set chair emblazoned with the Deadpool name and logo, as well as her character's name, "Vanessa."

Deadpool's creator, Rob Liefeld, then reposted the photo, adding that Vanessa's first appearance in comics was in New Mutant #98 (also the first appearance of Deadpool himself.

Copycat's real name is Vanessa Carlysle, which alone seems to hint at that being Baccarin's role. Add in the fact that Copycat's first appearance is in New Mutants #98 (though she has shapeshifted into the form of Domino throughout the entire issue, not revealing herself until X-Force #19, a full two years later) and that seems to confirm the role as a sure thing.
