Things are moving quickly for Deadpool 2. Not only have we had the recent teaser announcement, courtesy of star Ryan Reynolds, but the internet has been heated with discussion as to the who will take on the coveted role of Cable, with actors like Pierce Brosnan, Russell Crowe and David Harbour being linked to the part.
In a critical piece of casting news, Reynolds has now taken to his Instagram account to drop a cryptic message, signalling that Atlanta star Zazie Beetz has officially been cast in the role of mutant mercenary Domino.
Created by Deadpool artist Rob Liefeld in 1991, Domino is a mutant mercenary who possess the dual mutant traits of perfect accuracy and the ability to bend probability to her will, making the improbable possible. A stalwart of the team known as X-Force, Domino is also the lover of Cable, and her inclusion in Deadpool 2 is an important link to any future X-Force movie that may appear.
While fans will know Beetz from her role as Van in Atlanta, she’s still a fairly new face to the Hollywood scene. But with a role in Deadpool 2, you can bet that her star is going to rise fast!
Deadpool 2 will be released sometime in 2018.
