While critics fear super fatigue in Hollywood, there are films like last year's Deadpool, which broke the mold and any expectations for what a superhero movie could be. And with development for Deadpool 2 only continuing through the months, fans are left wondering where their favorite characters will go in the sequel. This includes Morena Baccarin's Vanessa, who was a tough as nails damsel in distress during the original.
This makes a great deal of sense. While Vanessa's rescue was the driving force of Deadpool's narrative, we never got to see she and Wade interact much in the present. Given the time and distance between their last relationship and new one, there are sure to be some changes.
Particularly, the fact that Wade Wilson is now full on crazypants. Part of what make Deadpool such a popular character for Marvel fans is how certifiably insane the anti-hero is. In the comics, this leads to his fourth wall breaking antics, as well as regular conversations with himself. So how is he going to have a healthy relationship with Vanessa, given his psychotic trauma? They may just have to start fresh, although hopefully they're still having love making montages. Because they deserve it.
One plot point that the hardcore comic fans are hoping for is Vanessa's transformation into the hero Copycat. With the powers of shape shifting and power mimicry, it would be awesome to see Vanessa start kicking ass after the events of Deadpool. She addressed this possibility, saying:
Development for Deadpool 2 is still very early, although I doubt that Copycat would be used in the first sequel. The movie already has major shoes to fill, and the addition of complicated characters like Cable. Instead, it would be interesting to see Vanessa perhaps discovering her mutant abilities toward the end of the film, even as a tease for the threequel. Since Deadpool's post credits scene set up Cable's introduction, perhaps another robe clad Deadpool will tease his girlfriend's burgeoning abilities in a similar way.
