According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gina Carano and T.J. Miller have joined Ryan Reynolds on the cast of Deadpool.
Carano, whom many had been hoping would be the next Wonder Woman, will play Angel Dust. First appearing in Morlocks by Geoff Johns and Shawn Martinbrough, Christine is a mutant who ran away from home when her powers kicked in. She eventually found her way to the gang known as the Morlocks. Angel Dust’s powers allow her to increase her adrenaline, giving her superhuman strength, speed, agility, and endurance for short periods of time.
Miller joins the project in an undisclosed comedic role.
