Deadpool has had a long, strange trip to the big screen—but other than the titular fourth-wall-breaking anti-hero, we’ve gotten little information as to what Fox’s upcoming movie is actually about. Now some of the film’s cast has shined light on that mystery by revealing who will be joining Wade Wilson onscreen.

Morena Baccarin and T.J. Miller both tweeted out earlier this week about shooting Deadpool, unveiling which characters they will be playing in the process.

Baccarin will play Vanessa Carlysle, also known as the shape-shifting mutant Copycat.

Copycat has been a love interest of Deadpool’s in the comics. The two actually made their first appearance in the same comic, The New Mutants #98, as Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld noted on his Instagram.

Miller also tweeted out about shooting the film in Vancouver while revealing that he is going to play Weasel.

Weasel is Deadpool’s brilliant sidekick of sorts, who often supplies the anti-hero with intel and weapons.

Deadpool himself also commented on the start of shooting, as Reynolds tweeted out a picture of his own on-set director’s chair.

Gina Carano, who has yet to tweet a picture of her chair, is also among the film’s cast, reportedly playing the mutant Angel Dust. Deadpool will release some time in early 2016 and is currently set to exist within the same universe as Fox’s ongoing X-Men film franchise.
