Based on Marvel Comics' popular anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds). After being diagnosed with cancer, Wilson undergoes an experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers. Armed with his new abilities and caustic tongue, Deadpool seeks out the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Despite all the action in the movie, Baccarin, who plays Deadpool's love interest, says it's a solid date movie.

"All the cancer stuff that they go through is so sad, but so funny at the same time," Baccarin said. "It totally is a romantic comedy!"
