February 18th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Firefly, V and Gotham actress Morena Baccarin has been cast as the lead female in the Deadpool movie.

You may remember a couple of weeks back we were saying that six actresses were in for the gig including Baccarin (here)?

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed she has joined the cast of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spinoff movie. Though there’s still no word on who exactly she’s playing.

That means she’ll join Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein and Gina Carano.

Deadpool hits hard on February 12th, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
