For a time, it appeared as if Deadpool was never going to get the chance to star in his own movie. However, when some leaked test footage wound up online, Fox realised just how desperate fans were for it to become a reality, and the Tim Miller helmed movieĀ ended up getting a green light and release date shortly after.

The cast is now slowly starting to come together, with a number of actresses now said to be testing for the lead female role. There’s no word on which character from the comic books they will be playing as of right now, but each of them are very different, so it’s not easy for fans to put their finger on any one possibility!

Regardless, those under consideration areĀ Morena Baccarin (Gotham), Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf), Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Red Band Society), Sarah Greene (Vikings), and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow). Baccarin and Schilling are obviously the two who are best known to audiences.

Deadpool Cast

It will be interesting then to see if Fox goes for a more established star or one of the younger newcomers.

Ryan Reynolds confirmed in a recent interview that the budget won’t be as big as most superhero movies (probably because Deadpool will end up being R-Rated), but hopefully Fox will still put together a great cast.

Deadpool made his big screen debut in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a movie most comic book fans would rather forget. This version has the chance to make up for past mistakes and launch a new franchise, so fingers crossed they find the right actress. Which of the names above would you most like to see cast?
