Morena Baccarin responds if she will return as Vanessa

It’s no secret that Ryan Reynolds will be back as superhero mercenary Wade Wilson in Dead Pool 3. However, the question of what the story will be, when it comes out, and who will appear in the threequel is still shrouded in secrecy.

Morena Baccarin’s character, Vanessa, who appeared in both dead Pool films as the hero’s love interest, seems like a logical choice to appear in the sequel. However, the fate of the character is unclear after his assassination in deadpool 2, only for Wade to travel back in time and save her, altering the timeline in the process.

With Vanessa’s return now potentially on the table for Dead Pool 3Baccarin took the opportunity to address the possibility of whether she will be back for more.

Morena Baccarin on the possible return of Vanessa


The Direct attended a panel at DragonCon Atlanta on Saturday, September 4 where Morena Baccarin spoke about her possible return as Vanessa in Dead Pool 3.

When asked by a fan if changing Deadpool‘s timeline could amount to a role for her character in the third film, Baccarin deflected, saying she had “no idea,” but she said that “it would be great” to see Vanessa return:

You know, from your lips to the ears of God, I have no idea. They are writing the screenplay right now. I’m usually the last to know anything. I’m not even… I wish I had information that I could give you, but I really don’t. But that would be great.

The actress revealed that Vanessa was originally supposed to die in Deadpool 2 but after the first screenings, they “changed it to include this timeline thing” that she said was a “good sign” for the future of his character:

“I think when we shot the second movie, I would just die. And then after showing it a couple of times, they actually changed it to include that timeline, so I think that’s a good sign that the fans want to see her again. Whether or not that happens is not up to me.”

Will Vanessa be in Deadpool 3?

Whereas Dead Pool 3 has been in development for some time now, it is still, as Baccarin mentions, in its infancy. The script is currently being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick with Shawn Levy attached to direct.

Ryan Reynolds was also spotted training for the film, indicating things are moving fast on the trio. Given this information, it shouldn’t be long before more casting for the film is confirmed.

The door is certainly open for Vanessa to return to Dead Pool 3 seeing as Wade went to great lengths to save her in the post-credits sequence. Some other characters, like Zazie Beetz’s Domino or Brianna Hildebrand’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead, also have the potential to appear as they were among the few characters to survive the events of Deadpool 2.

It will also be the first dead Pool movie to be released since Disney acquired Fox Studios, bringing the Marvel character back under the MCU umbrella. More Marvel announcements are looming at D23 next week, and hopefully some Dead Pool 3 news is part of it.
