Deadpool 3 is still a mystery, as star Morena Baccarin shares she has not been contacted yet about coming back as Vanessa Carlysle.
Deadpool 3 is presently in an on-going process. And the film will mark the character’s official debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In spite of the first two movies collected more than $1.5 billion combined at the box office, that doesn’t mean Marvel will agree with the Fox films and won’t make some important cast changes.
Morena Baccarin’s Questionable Return
Morena Baccarin says she hasn’t been contacted yet about coming back to Deadpool 3. Baccarin plays the role of Vanessa Carlysle in the famous comic book franchise opposite Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson aka Deadpool. In the comics, Vanessa is also a mutant copycat, though Deadpool hasn’t plunged into that particular storyline as of now.
As Deadpool’s girlfriend and then-fiance, Baccarin’s role, plays an important part in the first movie. Nevertheless, in Deadpool 2, she is murdered early on, with her death enraging Deadpool throughout. Fortunately, she’s brought back to life through a time-traveling device at the end of the movie, setting up a role in Deadpool 3.
Deadpool Is Yet To Get A Release Date
However, progress on the third film has been slow, due in part to Disney’s acquisition of Fox. Currently, Deadpool 3 doesn’t have a release date, though it is an on-going process. Reynolds has met up with Marvel, and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have announced Deadpool will be R-rated like the other films in the series, despite the move to Disney.
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has spoken more casually about maintaining the theme of Deadpool for future installments, saying “There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?.”
Nonetheless, beyond this assurance, it’s tough to say which storylines Deadpool 3 might handle and which characters could come back.
In a recent interview, Baccarin said she doesn’t know as of now if she’ll be in Deadpool 3. Baccarin said: “I have no idea. Apparently, they’re still writing it. I genuinely don’t know. I have not been asked or approached. There have been no conversations yet, so I’m waiting with bated breath.”
If Morena Baccarin Returns In Deadpool It Will Be A Boost For The Role
If Morena Baccarin were literally “right by his side” in Deadpool 3, it would be a huge step up from her role in the sequel. If Vanessa was brought back to life, it seems likely Baccarin will be asked to return. It wouldn’t sense to show that if the Deadpool writers didn’t intend on using Vanessa in the future.
Nevertheless, fans will have to wait and see as Marvel continues to work on how they want to bring the Merc with the Mouth into their universe. The studio has not released any updates about Deadpool 3 since the pandemic hit. Fans might have to wait until 2021 for casting updates.
