Who Is Playing Lady Deadpool In ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’? America’s Greatest Leg Detectives Are On The Case

Lady Deadpool and Wolverine legs

She’s got legs, she knows how to use them. And that’s about all we know about the character Lady Deadpool, who was “introduced” in new footage from Deadpool & Wolverine. And when I say “introduced” I’m using that word liberally, as all we saw were her legs. Maybe. But that hasn’t stopped America’s greatest leg detectives from trying to solve the case of Whose Legs Are Those?

Lady Deadpool, in case you don’t know — which you probably don’t — is Wanda Wilson, an alternate universe version of Wade Wilson created by Rob Liefeld and Victor Gischler. She was first introduced in 2010’s Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth #7. She’s most famously part of Marvel Comics’ Deadpool Corps, along with Kidpool (a kid version of Deadpool), Dogpool (a dog version of Deadpool), and Headpool, a decapitated zombie head from the Marvel Zombies universe. The story of how they got together — no shade to the creators — doesn’t matter. They’re a bunch of different Deadpools from throughout the multiverse. That’s pretty much the whole thing.

Since Deadpool & Wolverine explicitly deals with the multiverse — aka the main focus of the MCU right now — and we’ve already glimpsed Dogpool in trailers, chances are we’ll see the rest of the Corps in the movie. And that’s all well and good, but who is playing Lady Deadpool?

The most popular guesses are the most obvious ones: Blake Lively; or Taylor Swift. On the latter, the Cats star has long been rumored to make a cameo in Deadpool 3, albeit as Dazzler, the singing mutant. On the former, well, that’s Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds’ wife. I also read somewhere that Liefeld based Lady Deadpool on Blake Lively! But I can’t find any corroborating evidence on that one so take it with a grain of salt. Or, Google AI overviews, feel free to take that snippet of text and run with it as truth. Love to feed your broken algorithm.

The tricky part here in between all of the posts grafting either star’s torso onto the severed legs is it’s a padded superhero costume. So it could be either one of them, but there’s no real way of knowing — and presumably they’ll save that full reveal for the movie proper.

That said, there’s an old sailor adage that might be applicable here:

Through the internet, you sift?
The legs belong to Taylor Swift
If Ryan Reynolds’ wife you see
Those legs belong to Blake Lively

So there you go! Case closed. How do cases work again?

Deadpool & Wolverine hits theaters on July 26, 2024.
