Zazie Beetz Cast as Domino in Deadpool 2!

Series star and producer Ryan Reynolds has taken to Twitter to dispel a rumor and make an announcement of his own by revealing that Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) has joined the cast of Deadpool 2 as Domino! Domino’s mutant ability allows her to manipulate probability in her favor, making her a lethal mercenary just like Wade Wilson.

Deadpool 2 will also introduce Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops. The character has one of the comic book medium’s more complicated origin stories, so it remains to be seen what will go into the backstory of the big screen Cable. The role is currently being cast and, while rumors have been quite prevalent, an actor has not yet been selected for the role.

Even as Deadpool 2 heads towards production, plans are said to already be underway on a third Deadpool film that will flesh out a full X-Force team.

John Wick‘s David Leitch is directing Deadpool 2 from a screenplay by the returning “real heroes here,” screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Reynolds is again serving as a producer on Deadpool 2 alongside X-Men franchise caretakers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.
