Among those to audition for the part were Sienna Miller, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Masters Of Sex star Lizzie Caplan, Star Trek Beyond star Sofia Boutella, Sylvia Hoeks, who is currently filming Blade Runner 2049 and Stephanie Sigman, who had a small role in Spectre.
Also testing out for the role were Orange Is The New Black's Ruby Rose, The Knick's Eve Hewson, Kelly Rohrbach, who has a key role in the Baywatch reboot and Mackenzie Davis, who made her breakthrough in The Martian.
Deadpool grossed over $780 million at the box office and a sequel was swiftly ordered, a sequel that is set to film later this year.
Ryan Reynolds starred as Deadpool, with Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, T. J. Miller, Gina Carano and Brianna Hildebrand also in key roles. John Wick co-director David Leitch will take charge of the sequel.
There is currently no release date for the sequel to Deadpool, which was released on DVD last year and is available to purchase on the right-hand side of the page.
