The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Morena Baccarin has landed the female lead role in "Deadpool." The announcement reveals that Baccarin will play Deadpool's love interest and will try to deal with, as THR states, "falling for a man with a hideously scarred face." Aside from being Deadpool's main squeeze, no other information has been revealed regarding Baccarin's character. Wade Wilson has racked up a lot of exes over his 25 years of existence, including X-Force member Siryn, shape-shifting mercenary Copycat (a years-old leaked script included that character as the female lead, according to Comic Book Movie) and the insane assassin known as Typhoid Mary. It's possible Baccarin could be playing a completely original character as well.

While Hernandez's role may be unknown, we do know one thing for sure about "Suicide Squad": it will have a flamethrower in it. Director David Ayer tweeted a picture of said weapon with the hashtag "#skwad," thus teasing its inclusion in the film.

"Walking Dead" spinoff star Cliff Curtis recently spoke with Flicks and the City about the still mysterious series, which also just finished shooting its pilot episode.

"I've done the pilot," said Curtis. "We did that." Curtis revealed that he could not say much about the spinoff, not even his character's name. "I'm not even allowed to say the name of the show, because these things are still negotiating. I'm not even allowed to say the location, because, you know, really really strict people. I don't get it! I don't understand, why this is how this is or what that's all about but I've been told very clearly... In some ways they want to raise the bar. In terms of the relationship stakes and the humanity. They want to bring more humanity to the characters and the relationships than the original franchise, whatever that means." You can check out the full interview below.


While talking with I Am Rogue, Evan Peters revealed what he knows about Quicksilver's role in "X-Men: Apocalypse."

"I think [Quicksilver is returning], yes. I assume it as well, but I don't know what I'm supposed to say and not supposed to say," said Peters. "I haven't seen a script." When asked if his schedule has been worked out yet in regards to filming the mutant movie, Peters answered, "No. We'll see. I think... I don't know what I can say and what I can't say. All I can say is that I have not seen a script yet."
