Who Is Playing Lady Deadpool In DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE? These Are The 5 Most Likely Possibilities

Lady Deadpool is perhaps the Merc with the Mouth's most popular Variant and, in this feature, we're taking a closer look at the 5 most likely candidates to play Wanda Wilson in Deadpool & Wolverine...

Lady Deadpool, also known as Wanda Wilson, is a female version of Wade Wilson from another reality. There have been rumblings for a while now about the character appearing in Deadpool & Wolverine and it was recently confirmed in a one-minute trailer. 

Unfortunately, we only got to see the Deadpool Variant's legs, meaning we're still no closer to knowing who will play her.

We aren't expecting it to be a random actress and, in this feature, you'll find the 5 most compelling possibilities. From those rumoured to be in the movie to some very unexpected suggestions, you'll no doubt have plenty to say about each of these. 

To find out who we think could be playing Lady Deadpool in the upcoming threequel, click on the "Next"/"View List" buttons below...

5. Morena Baccarin


The first two Deadpool movies did Morena Baccarin a disservice, ignoring Vanessa's comic book history as Copycat to make her little more than a love interest to Wade Wilson.

We're hoping the character will find a measure of redemption in Deadpool & Wolverine, hopefully with the introduction of a mutant Variant. Another possibility, of course, is that this alternate reality Vanessa is her world's Deadpool! 

This would make for a really fun moment between the two and gives Baccarin a role in the threequel she can really sink her teeth into (even if it's only for a scene or two). 

From a narrative standpoint, we'd also argue that this makes the most sense. 

4. Bella Thorne


Bella Thorne has long said she'd like to play Lady Deadpool on the big screen and that wish can finally become a reality when Deadpool & Wolverine is released in theaters next month. 

Not only can we imagine Thorne bringing a sexiness and swagger to the character which does the comics justice, but her history as a Disney star (she starred in projects alongside Zendaya) gives this threequel the chance to take aim at the House of the Mouse in a memorable way.

These days, Thorne isn't in the spotlight as much as she once was, so there's admittedly a chance her cameo could fall flat.

That shouldn't matter, though, and we'd like to think Marvel Studios will pick the right person for the job instead of just enlisting a random A-Lister.

3. Ryan Reynolds


Yes, you read that correctly! 

There's been a huge amount of speculation surrounding plans for Lady Deadpool, but what if it's just Ryan Reynolds who, with the use of visual effects, is transformed into a woman? 

The VFX is there to do it and Wanda unmasking to reveal herself not as Taylor Swift but Reynolds would surely lead to big laughs in theaters (and it isn't something the vast majority of fans would ever see coming). 

It's also on point for the Deadpool franchise's sense of humour and we can't imagine it offending anyone providing the actor's portrayal of a woman doesn't lean into any harmful stereotypes.

2. Taylor Swift


Yes, Entertainment Weekly recently "confirmed" Taylor Swift won't appear in Deadpool & Wolverine, but we're not buying it. 

Over the years, Disney has issued countless denials to the trades and entertainment websites about casting or leaks; remember when they claimed our first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story was "fake," only for it to adorn every piece of merchandise months later?

Lady Deadpool feels like a fun role for the singer/songwriter, and one which might give her the chance to drop some F-Bombs and show a side of herself we've not seen in her previous acting roles. 

Dazzler is still a possibility, of course, but we still think Wanda Wilson is a likely possibility for Swift. 

1. Blake Lively


Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively met on the set of Green Lantern and have been together ever since. They're one of Hollywood's most popular couples and, on social media, Lively has shown she's just as quick-witted as her husband. 

Lively doesn't take on a tonne of acting gigs these days, though that would only serve to make a Deadpool & Wolverine cameo all the more surprising.

Lady Deadpool being played by Reynolds' real-life wife has the makings of a scene-stealing meta gag and Lively would be a perfect fit for the role.

Many of you have already suggested that she makes more sense than Swift and, in this instance, we'd have to agree. Those legs belong to someone and, right now, we'd say Lively makes the most sense.

@THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - It’d be something if she took off the mask if it ended up being Josh’s mom.

@DrReedRichards - Season One was terrible.

@TK420 -

You're entitled to your wrong opinion, that's fine.

@DrReedRichards - Excellent first season.

They should include a DEIpool just for the lols
DarthAlgar - 6/11/2024, 12:24 PM
@Matchesz - Don't rule anything out.

Don't let the slim legs in the trailer fool you. This is Disney and this Ladypool may very well may be...packing.

The limited vocabulary people on here would get their rocks off from it.
DarthAlgar - 6/11/2024, 12:29 PM
@Feralwookiee - Thank God I haven't had lunch yet.

Look at the micropenis. 🧐

@DarthAlgar -
That's her feminine ladyparts, than you very much!

@Feralwookiee - Then you should see the 14 inch "feminine lady part" I saw on this 6'4 black guy last night on PornHub.

Woowzer. The receiver...well she was a trooper. 🫡

TheVisionary25 - 6/11/2024, 12:26 PM
I’m betting on Blake Lively or a variant of Morena Baccarin’s Vanessa right now.

Bella Thorne? A little too random.

Is that broad still around? I thought she was doing OnlyFans and living in Zendaya's shadow.
MotherGooseUPus - 6/11/2024, 12:30 PM
Blake Lively is the answer... i hope

Also, for the love of god i hope this movie delivers and is great. So far, i think it will be, but who knows. Marvel NEEEEDS a big W

Whoever it is has the legs of a dancer (as in a LOT of dance training over many years) Bella Thorn doesn't to my eyes and if it is Ryan then there is a female with a dance background that was the body double for those legs.
YouFlopped - 6/11/2024, 12:40 PM
Since this movie is woke propaganda ryan will probably play her in full drag cause you know, the message.

im sure it will get plenty of laughs!
PaKent - 6/11/2024, 12:41 PM
We need a kid Deadpool and a nonbinary Deadpool too
SonOfAGif - 6/11/2024, 12:41 PM
Josh has a sick obsession with Taylor Swift and I'm beginning to think that he is completely unhinged at this point.
DravenCorvis - 6/11/2024, 12:54 PM
@SonOfAGif - Have pointed out the creepiness of it myself.
SonOfAGif - 6/11/2024, 1:28 PM
@DravenCorvis - Any Deadpool & Wolverine article he creates will involve a Taylor Swift rumor. How obsessed does one have to be before admitting there is a problem?
Nighthawk01 - 6/11/2024, 1:35 PM
@SonOfAGif - Yeah, Josh mentioning a massively popular singer who is heavily rumored to be in the film is a "sick obsession." Ror wrote up at least two Deadpool 3 poster stories yesterday and mentioned Hugh Jackman...must have a real rager for him. You absolute muppet.
DravenCorvis - 6/11/2024, 1:44 PM
@SonOfAGif - I remember being baffled by him bringing her up constantly.

Someone pointed out that he's maybe trying to rope in TS fans who might be googling her, which made sense to a degree, but is their a cross-over between comic fans and Swifties?

Then he kept bringing her up, and sounding like one of her obsessive fans - he prattled on about Taylor's number or some shit yesterday.
SonOfAGif - 6/11/2024, 1:52 PM
@Nighthawk01 - All Josh talks about is Taylor Swift in the articles you grumpy can of tomatoes. If you're a Swifty just say that. Grown men obsessed with a pop singer who little girls idolize is bizarre. I expect no less from users like yourself who spent a hell of a lot of time judging the little mermaid.
Nighthawk01 - 6/11/2024, 2:00 PM
@SonOfAGif - All I've seen is a handful of rumors, relevant references to her in articles about her supposed role in Deadpool 3, and a throwaway mention in a copied and pasted cast list. Swift has tons of adult fans, though I get why users like you and the site's resident incel, @DravenCorvus, might be confused. Can we bring the hammer down on these bozos, @TwoByFour?
SonOfAGif - 6/11/2024, 2:05 PM
@Nighthawk01 - No idea who DravenCorvus is. But thanks for your input. If you are a Taylor Swift fan, My comment was not aimed at you but at Josh. But since you want to be the White Knight of articles maybe you should help Josh write them.
TwoByFour - 6/11/2024, 3:40 PM
@Nighthawk01 - The short answer is yes, I can bring the hammer down. I have to be honest and fair and give warnings first tho. But please don't hesitate to point out to me when users are being disrespectful.

@SonOfAGif - I haven't seen anything flagrant from you, and really not sure if you're the troll type. But just keep the comments respectful, my man. Express your opinion to your heart's content. Just do so with respect for others in mind. Thank you.

@DravenCorvus - This is how utterly fair I am. Yesterday you were really fvcking around and breezed past warning #1 and #2 and came within inches of Strike 3. What I'm seeing of you here is pretty light but it's still rude as hell. Just cool it and show some respect when you're expressing your opinions. That's all we ask. Next time we have to chat like this tho, it will be a ban.

Respect first, opinion second.
BeNice123 - 6/11/2024, 6:29 PM
@SonOfAGif - we all need to petition to get this guy to stop writing and posting in this website. Hes getting so [frick]in ridiculous.

braunermegda - 6/11/2024, 12:53 PM
I would die if it's Blake and he jokes something about spouses and she strikes back with something scarlett johanson related
marvel72 - 6/11/2024, 1:03 PM
Would be great seeing Sydney Sweeney in that tight Deadpool costume.
Skestra - 6/11/2024, 1:08 PM
Well, that should do it for Josh's daily Lady Deadpool / Taylor Swift post. Same time tomorrow, guys?

ObserverIO - 6/11/2024, 1:23 PM
It's Swift. You are all blind as vigilante lawyers if you can't see those are Taylor's lower legs.
Nighthawk01 - 6/11/2024, 1:36 PM
It's gotta be Lively.
marvel72 - 6/11/2024, 1:47 PM
I wouldn't have a problem with Bella Thorne being underneath the mask.
