Holy chimichangas! Zazie Beetz cast as Domino in Deadpool 2!

03.09.2017

Well, it looks like the wait is finally over! After all these long months of speculation, rumors, and fan-casting, one of the most important characters in Deadpool's lore has been cast for the sequel! So, without further ado, our next Cable will be --

-- *adjusts notes* no, wait, nevermind, we still don't have a Cable. But we have the next best thing! The female lead, Dominio, has been cast, and it's Zazie Beetz (FX's ATLANTA)! Here's a tweet from Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds, confirming the casting:

I don't know much about her acting (having not seen ATLANTA yet), but as long as she can be fierce, athletic, and a good foil to Deadpool's constant tomfoolery, I think we'll be in good hands. 

Either way, DEADPOOL 2 will hit theaters March 2nd, 2018.

Extra Tidbit: Domino's main power is the manipulation of "luck".

I never knew what race she was in the comics. Y'all are really being picky. Despite the fact that they could cast cable as a black guy (my only problem with that is the characters similarity to Bishop), but there's plenty of black actors who could do Cable. A black actor did a solid job as kingpin. And a white actor did a great job (I'd say the differences prolly came down to overall product and production crew). They will prolly just put a white circle around her eye. I don't really

I'm just wondering how the story will play out. Will domino be on cables team at first? And what is going to happen to his girl? Will she get the powers she does in the comics? Or even be in it? If she doesn't, is she just gonna be the stay at home wife, or kid napped again?

They wanted a black woman period I guess. Now that dead pool was a success its time for studio meddling to pander to the fucking diversity train. The fact that her character is pale WHITE skin color is part of her mutation so lets cast something completely opposite of that. Hmm I wonder how well it would go over casting a white actor for the role of a black character and having that actor seriously wear black makeup the whole movie. My interest in this has already gone down.

Only those are dice Ryan, not dominos. As for the casting, I really don't care who they cast as Domino, as lobg as they DON'T CAST David Harbour as Cable.

Let's wait and see if they change it in light of your disapproval.
