Hold off that return to MMA and UFC. It looks like Rhonda Rousey will have to wait for that match because Gina Carano’s film career seems to be moving along just fine!.
Carano recently finished shooting the remake of Kickboxer with Dave Bautista and Bus 657 with Robert DeNiro and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. She is now going to film Extraction with Bruce Willis and then move right into the film she just signed on to, Deadpool opposite of Ryan Reynolds.
In Deadpool, directed by Tim Miller, Reynolds of course plays the Merc-with-the-Mouth while Carano is said to be playing Angel Dust. Though the character has not appeared in any of the X-Men films yet, Angel Dust is a Morlock with the power to increase her adrenaline giving her superhuman strength for a short time. When using her powers, she ends up with dark line across her face. The character was created by Geoff Johns and Shawn Martinbrough.
