ATLANTA actress Zazie Beetz is set to play Domino in DEADPOOL 2.
As is the fashion now, Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds revealed the news via his Twitter account. Domino is a character who, in the comics, is part of a government breeding programme to create the perfect weapon. After going through the process, she’s deemed a failure and becomes a mercenary with some nifty marksmanship and combat skills. With eyes on the future, Domino is also part of the X-FORCE which is rumoured to be weaved into the DEADPOOL films down the line before getting its own feature (which is currently being written by Joe Carnahan).
Beetz joins Reynolds and potentially David Harbour who has become the frontrunner to take the role of Cable in the film. David Leitch is directing from Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese’s script with T.J. Miller and Morena Baccarin returning to the cast. There’s no set release date for the film but, with the release of LOGAN this past weekend, Deadpool tried to do some good but came up a little short.
