To this point, the relationship between Marvel Studios films and television series has largely been a one way street: characters and storylines from the movies have affected shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, though we have not yet seen those same shows influencing the stories on the big screen. But while this is the current status quo, we may soon see a shift.

Despite its R-rating, director Tim Miller's Deadpool should really be a lot like a cartoon.

Munn has dabbled in comedy (The BabymakersIron Man 2, Date Night). Her coolest role to date probably was a turn in Steven Soderberghís Magic Mike. This will be her highest-profile role, for sure, but a lot of that depends on how Bryan Singer chooses to use her in the mix of mutants.

Since arriving on the Hollywood stage back in 2008, Marvel Studios has become known for creating two very different kinds of post-credits scenes.
