Updated: Short-list of actresses reading for Deadpool's Domino revealed

10.19.2016

UPDATE: Collider has added four other names in the mix, including Ruby Rose, Mackenzie Davis, Kelly Rohrbach, and Eve Hewson. Add those to your guessing (Dead) pool.

So like most people with a pulse, I loved the DEADPOOL movie. It was nice to have an off-the-wall, fourth-wall breaking, unapologetic R-rated superhero movie that took potshots at the genre, while also being a good superhero romp in its own right. That's a hard balance to walk, and while I don't feel it always managed to walk it (I love the movie, but I do sometimes feel it's praise can be a bit overstated), the fact that it is as good as it is should be seen as a miracle. Who knew that an obscure, weird, Deathstroke parody rip-off would be one of the most popular anti-heroes today?  

Anyway, a sequel to the film is a no-brainer for the studio, and casting for new characters has begun. While there were rumors that Kyle Chandler had gotten the role fo Cable (a character Deadpool teased at the end of the first film), there has since been no confirmation (maybe they will go with Deadpool's choice of Keira Knightley?). However, Collider has released a short-list of the actresses reading for the role of Domino.

Now, who is Domino, you might ask so I'm not the only one? Well, she's apparently another mutant mercenary who has ties to Cable (including as a romantic interest), and who barely tolerates Deadpool in a "frenemy" sort of way. Her powers, according to the Marvel wiki are:

to subliminally and psionically initiate random telekinetic acts that affect probability in her favor by making improbable (but not impossible) things to occur within her line of sight, thus causing her to have "good luck" and her opponents to have "bad luck." This phenomenon can be anything from an enemy's equipment failure to hitting just the right switch with a stray shot to shut down an overloading nuclear reactor.

That's...complicated. I wonder how they'll explain it in the film. 

Anyway, here's the short-list:

Lizzy Caplan:

Mary Elizabeth Winstead:

Sofia Boutella:

Sienna Miller:

And a few other actresses have read as well, including Stephanie Sigman (SPECTRE) and Sylvia Hoeks, who is a newcomer who will make her debut in the Ryan Gosling BLADE RUNNER sequel. 

Now, I don't know about you guys, while all those girls are great, I'm personally rooting for Lizzy Caplan. I've loved her since MEAN GIRLS and PARTY DOWN, and she's killed it in every role she's been in (even if the films or shows themselves were lacking). She's always cool, funny, and badass (and notice how, though she is in my opinion one of the most attractive actresses currently working today, her physical attributes are the least important part of her persona). Don't get me wrong, any one of those actresses would make a great Domino, I just would like to see Caplan as an awesome mutant assassin. Is that too much to ask?

Anyway, no release date yet for the sequel, but filming is supposed to commence sometime early 2017.

So what do you guys think of the list? And who would be your dream casting (I guess that includes living or dead)?

Extra Tidbit: Domino first appeared in X-Force, issue #8, in 1992.

I'm down with Lizzy or Sienna.

Lizzy worked with TJ Miller on Cloverfield.

I was personally hoping to see Keira Knightley on this list after the Cable tease.

As far as the update goes, we already read about Davis. Ruby Rose has the look, but I'll wait until John Wick 2 to decide on her. Rohrbach has no shot against these other more experienced actresses. And speaking of Rohrbach and her upcoming movie, why aren't they looking at Daddario for Domino as well?

Lizzy or Sienna

Lizzy would be my top choice of those listed.

alternate choice-

She's probably too old now, but what ever happened to Selma Blair?

Out of the women listed, I'd vote for Sienna Miller. Gorgeous, underrated and has already proven to be a badass when she played The Baroness. The others seem too young. Although, I'd be fine with Lizzy Caplan or Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

It says Mackenzie Davis has been added to this list (who incidentally is also in the Blade Runner sequel) so she'd be my top choice now, but out of the original four I'd say Mary Elizabeth Winstead. She was the runner-up to play Sharon Carter in The Winter Soldier, and one of the final four for the role of Jessica Jones, so it's time she actually scores a superhero role!

It's about time Mary Elizabeth Winstead gets some serious exposure. She deserves it. I'd be okay with Lizzy Caplan as well.

Winstead...

Hands-down I want Winstead for that part. She would do great.

Out of the names mentioned before, I still like the idea of Knightley or Davis for Domino.

As for the new list of names, I like Sienna Miller the most. Sexy, beautiful, and can bring the right amount of badass and zaniness to go along with it.

I would okay with any of them except for Sienna Miller (just don't like her). I really hope it comes down to Lizzy Caplan or Mary Elizabeth Winstead. I worry that Sofia Boutella will just end up getting typecasted.

All of the actresses listed are awesome, but you go with Winstead no question imo.
