'Deadpool 3': Morena Baccarin may not be in the threequel and that would be a terrible idea
Franchise star Morena Baccarin, who plays Deadpool's girlfriend Vanessa Carlysle, has revealed that she has not been approached for 'Deadpool 3' yet
There's been some slightly troubling news about the third 'Deadpool' movie that's got us very worried. Franchise star Morena Baccarin, who plays Deadpool / Wade Wilson's (Ryan Reynolds) girlfriend Vanessa Carlysle, has revealed that she has not been approached for 'Deadpool 3' yet.
If this means that Vanessa won't be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Wade, that's really disappointing news. Baccarin was a highlight of the first 'Deadpool' movie and even though she had a very minor role in 'Deadpool 2', we all really felt her absence. "I have no idea," Baccarin told EW's Couch Surfing when asked if she has a bigger role in 'Deadpool 3'. "Apparently, they're still writing it. I genuinely don't know. I have not been asked or approached. There's been no conversations yet, so I'm waiting with bated breath."
Now in all fairness, 'Deadpool 3' is still years away. Marvel Studios already has major feature films scheduled for as far ahead as July 2022 and the third 'Deadpool' movie isn't likely to even begin production till late 2021 or early 2022 at the earliest. So it makes sense that Baccarin may not have been approached yet. In any case, she did say in the same interview that she would like to have a much bigger role in the next film, and we're hoping she gets that wish.
We love Vanessa and the 'Deadpool' movies wouldn't be the same without her. Plus, there's been a lot of theories going around online about what she could become in the future and it would be a shame not to explore some of these theories. Though she is mostly based on the Marvel Comics character Vanessa Carlysle / Copycat, one of the leading theories is that Vanessa might be an avatar of the cosmic entity Death, who is basically Deadpool's long-distance girlfriend in the comics. The MCU is setting off expansion into the cosmic side of the universe with 'The Eternals', so if this theory were to prove true, that would give Baccarin a really big role indeed.
In any case, we're going to be eagerly waiting for any news we can get about Vanessa's appearance in the upcoming movie. And we're really hoping it's good news.
