Gina Carano Talks ‘Deadpool’; Comments On Her Fight With A Certain Steel Skinned Mutant

Next year, MMA fighter turned actress Gina Carano will be joining the X-Men universe as the mutant Angel Dust in the highly-anticipated Deadpool. During ScreenRant’s visit to the Vancouver set, the actress discussed her role in the upcoming film and her fight with a certain steel skinned X-character with the site. When asked by the site about the research that she did for the role, Carano stated that there wasn’t a lot out there and due to that it allowed her some “room to play with it”. The actress then went on to comment on the character’s look and power set.   

So this is actually my first look (talking about her current, normal hair style). My second look is much more extreme. It’s, I don’t know, a year to five years after, and Mohawk with the braids on the side. So she’s very fashion forward. What she’s known for is having extreme adrenaline issues. Which, I don’t know. Have you looked up Angel Dust before? It’s kinda like a PCP and people kind of rage on it. I think that’s very fitting for my character. She’s got extreme strength and adrenaline.

So, being that her character is the one of the film’s powerhouses, it’s only fitting that she goes head to head with the steel skinned mutant Colossus on the film. When asked about this particular brawl, Carano stated it was “a lot different than most of the fight scenes and the physicality that I’ve had before. I’ve never done anything with CGI, let alone I’ve never done anything with a 6’8” man as far as physicality goes”.  After seeing Carano in Haywire and Fast 6, I can definitely say that she’s a welcome addition and this is a fight scene I’ll be looking forward to watching. Let us know your thoughts on the above in the comments section below.
