DRUM ROLL PLEASE…
Who’s that girl? We’ll that’s Vanessa Geraldine Carlysle aka ‘Copycat’. Yes, Copycat, the shape-shifting, deceitful mutant that was once Deadpool’s lady love.
Created by Fabian Nicieza and Joe Madureira, Copycat made her comic book debut in the same issue as Deadpool, “New Mutants” #98, although fans didn’t know it at the time. The shapeshifting former love of Deadpool was secretly infiltrating X-Force disguised as Domino with a mission to kill the mutant team’s leader, Cable. It wasn’t until several years later, during Marvel’s “Flashback Month,” that Copycat’s full origin story was revealed in the pages of “Deadpool” #-1.
Ryan Reynolds also took to twitter to broadcast his excitement to finally film the movie and to tease his fans.
