Cast This: Domino (Deadpool 2)

11.23.2016

With the runaway box office success of DEADPOOL, the inevitable sequel was certain to adapt more mutants from Marvel Comics to join (or fight) motor-mouthed mercenary Wade Wilson, played with boundless enthusiasm and violence by Ryan Reynolds.

Fan-favorite character Cable was basically a sure thing for the follow-up (and his convoluted origins will likely receive snarky fourth-wall-breaking commentary by our crimson-clad anti-hero). But it has since been confirmed that Cable's pistol-packing comic book colleague Domino will also be part of DEADPOOL 2.

Domino, whose real name is Neena Thurman, first appeared in the ongoing New Mutants comic (*sort of -- see below) with all the pouches and dubious anatomy one would expect from a Rob Liefeld creation. Her mutant ability involves subliminal probability manipulation, which essentially causes her to have "good luck" while her opponents experience "bad luck." In addition to that handy power, Domino is lethal with firearms and highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat.

(*It was later revealed that the Domino originally introduced in New Mutants was actually the shapeshifting mutant Copycat, whose real name is Vanessa Carlysle -- the character portrayed by Morena Baccarin in DEADPOOL. It will be interesting to see if the movie version of Vanessa ever acquires similar superpowers.)

One of the only survivors of a government program designed to engineer the perfect weapon, the pale-skinned Domino later joined a team of mercenaries that included the time-traveling telekinetic mutant named Cable. She has also been romantically involved with both Cable and Deadpool in various comic storylines, which could present a contentious dynamic if carried into the movie.

Domino was also a core member of the mutant team X-Force, so it makes sense for the character to be included in DEADPOOL 2 since the studio is already discussing the possibility of making X-Force a part of DEADPOOL 3.

Domino also appeared in the recent Deadpool videogame, which featured ubiquitous voice actor Nolan North (Uncharted) as the chatty murder machine.

A number of actresses were already reportedly being pursued for the Domino role in DEADPOOL 2, but the fact that the sequel just secured JOHN WICK co-director David Leitch to replace Tim Miller still gives us an opportunity to envision someone specific in the part ourselves.

That original list did contain a variety of appealing choices to deliver the character's brash attitude, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ruby Rose of "Orange Is the New Black", and Lizzy Caplan (who would be my own pick as she's welcome in anything, plus it would be cool to see her shooting and punching people), but there's a number of other ladies who could do justice to the role.

Let us know below who YOU think would make a killer Domino!

1) Keira Knightley 2) Mackenzie Davis

Knightley might seem like a weird choice, but ever since seeing her in Tony Scott's "Domino" (where she played a real life bounty hunter) I've thought that she would be great for Marvel's Domino. Out of all the actresses that have appeared on the official list, Davis gets my vote by a long shot, though I will admit that most of them would be pretty good in the role.

Ruby Rose is garbage, why would anyone want her in the role??? I'd say Winstead or Caplan would be cool with me.

Lizzy Caplan, she would bounce off Reynolds humor so well.

If they keep the shortlist Tim Miller had, Lizzy Caplan's my first pick. Even if they don't, she's still my first pick. Winstead's another actress who can play the subtle humor that will be needed to deal with a guy like Wade.

How do we know the shortlist was Tim Miller's? Last I checked Miller's main choice was Mackenzie Davis (I think) and no shortlist.

I may be thinking of an earlier story in which they hadn't decided yet. Might've been a studio list. With Miller out, who knows?

-1 Lizzy Caplan (top choice because of her comedy skills)
-2 Mackenzie Davis from Halt and Catch Fire (Domino-esque attitude)
-3 Mary Elizabeth Winstead (versatile)

The suggestion of Katheryn Winnick is awesome

She was always my top pick for Captain Marvel (some of the covers from CM even LOOKED like Winnick), but oh well... if not that, why the hell not this?

I'm sure whoever they cast will be fine. I'm rooting for Lizzy Caplan, because I think she can play off Reynolds more than the other actresses.

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt would be perfect. She's already proven she can kick ass and look gorgeous doing it in films like Looper, Edge of Tomorrow, and Sicario. And I've been waiting for her to appear in a big comic book franchise since she lost out to Atwell, and Johansson for Agent Carter, and Black Widow.

She actually didn't lose out to either Atwell or Johansson. She was cast as Black Widow in Iron Man 2, but Fox were dicks about her contract with them for Gulliver's Travels and wouldn't let her take the role because there would be a slight scheduling conflict, so Johansson was cast to replace her. Marvel offered her the role of Peggy Carter without even auditioning for it, but she turned it down.

Out of the 3 listed I prefer Caplan, but to think different I'd say pick a non too familiar face, but equally capable. Imogen Poots, Liz Gilies or Alessandra Torresani to name a few outsiders.

Hmm..

In terms of people already in contention, I gotta go with Lizzy Caplan and Ruby Rose.

In terms of people not listed, I always gotta go with my goddess Alexandra Daddario (I find it weird her Baywatch costar Kelly Rohrbach is in contention, but Daddario isn't).
