Ryan Reynolds announced on his Twitter account today announcing that Zazie Beetz would be joining the cast of Deadpool 2 as Domino, a well known mercenary with some similarities to Deadpool. The tweet had the tagline “Domino Effect” accompanied by the picture above:
There has been speculation for months now as to who was going to be tapped for the role of Domino. I’ll be guilty of jumping on the Domino train and lowkey wanting Janelle Monae to be cast. Also, I lowkey may have pegged Gugu Mbatha-Raw to be cast as Domino too. However, after seeing Beetz’s work on FX’s Atlanta, I am confident that she will kick super butt as Domino in Deadpool 2.
Now that Domino has been cast, who wants to place bets to see when we’ll hear about Cable’s casting? Because that is the only role that hasn’t been openly cast yet.
There is no official release date yet for Deadpool 2, but we expect it to come out sometime in 2018. While we wait around for more information on Deadpool 2, let us know what you think about the casting information above. Do you like it? Do you hate it? Let us know in the comments below.
