Comic book movies are filled with Easter Eggs and references to characters in the comics. Even if they themselves don’t appear, it’s nice to speculate if they ever could. For example, take Vanessa from Deadpool, played by Morena Baccarin, she in the comics is a shapeshifter known as Copycat, who was indeed Wade Wilson’s girlfriend when he got cancer.
Since the film debuted, and the sequel was announced, fans have wondered if Copycat would appear eventually. Well, in an interview with Cinemablend, Morena Baccarin said she’s all for it.
“I would love to see the evolution of [Copycat], and how she becomes that. I also think it’s very interesting to see the relationship with her and Wade after the whole thing. His whole demeanor changing. And just how they continue their relationship.”
Now based on this, and everything we’re hearing about Deadpool 2, it’s clear that she won’t be becoming Copycat for the sequel, which may be a good thing as newcomers Cable and Domino shouldn’t be diminshed in their roles, and a transformation like this should get more attention than a side story. Even Baccarin says she doesn’t know if it will happen.
“Obviously everyone wants to see Copycat. I have no idea if that’s something they have in the works or not.”
