There’s no word yet about any potential frontrunners, nor indeed about who exactly said female lead is. In fact, precious little is known about the Deadpool movie, beyond the fact that production is set to begin in March.

More details will almost certainly emerge soon as the production date gets closer and closer for the Merc With A Mouth.
