With the Deadpool movie gearing up to full production, 20th Century Fox has announced Morena Baccarin has been cast as the female lead for the flick.

Baccarin will portray the love interest for the titular character, an assassin with a scarred face who acquires superpowers while seeking a cure for his cancer. Gina Carano is also set to star as Angel Dust.

Save for a Tweet from Ryan Reynolds, little is known about the story of the Merc with a Mouth.

The Deadpool movie goes in front of the lens in March, with the picture expected to arrive on the big screen in early 2016.
