Even if he leaves the mask on to cover his hideously scarred face, it's still Ryan Reynolds under there!
So you just knew he was going to have a knockout love interest! And she has geek cred to boot!

Homeland star Morena Baccarin has just scored the female lead in FOX's X-Men spinoff.
Sci-fi fans may know the stunning star from from Firefly, or even V where she played an ambitious alien queen.
As for what role she's playing in this comic book adaptation? It has yet to be revealed, but our best guess is…
Deadpool's fellow assassin — and major crush — has a mutant luck power that keeps her safe from his antics!
Gina Carano was recently announced as playing mutant strong woman Angel Dust, and T.J. Miller will add some extra comic relief as well.
Seems like this is going to be one X-citing cast!
