Just in case all you love birds were busy swooning your significant others (we don’t blame you) and didn’t hear the news, MMA star turned actress Gina Carano will finally play a superhero.

Carano will play the role of Angel Dust in next year’s Deadpool film.


For those not familiar with the character, Angel Dust is a member of The Morlocks, the underground mutant society. Angel Dust has the ability to increase the adrenaline in her body, allowing her to have super-human strength.

THR first broke the news of the actress closing the deal for the role and also mentioned that X-men fan-favorite, Colossus is set to appear in the film.

Carano joins Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller.
