After solidifying Ryan Reynolds' return, Fox is starting to flesh out the rest of Deadpool's cast. The studio is eyeing multiple actresses for the film's female lead. Most of them are known for their work on the small screen, which spans from Orange Is the New Black to Gotham.

Deadpool is a highly skilled hero whose fighting technique is only rivaled by his sharp wit. They don't call him "The Merc With the Mouth" for nothing. He's a strong personality who'll need a female couterpart who can hold her own. One of these six women could be the right fit. Check out the shortlist of candidates below.

Deadpool is directed by Tim Miller and opens Feb. 12, 2016.
