After a casting search which included potential candidates such as Lizzy Caplan, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sienna Miller, Sofia Boutella, Stephanie Sigman, and Sylvia Hoeks, Atlanta star Zazie Beetz has been chosen to take on the role of Domino in Deadpool 2.
Ryan Reynolds made the announcement himself via Twitter, sharing a couple of not so subtle photoshopped images to reveal the casting. Those images can be found below if interested.
Among Beetz’s other credits is Applesauce and a couple of episodes of the Netflix series Easy. She has a number of upcoming projects either completed or in post-production, including Finding Her (set for release next month), Sollers Point, The Undiscovered Country, and Slice.
Now focus will move to finding an actor to play Cable in Deadpool 2. Last we heard, Stranger Things star David Harbour was being eyed for the job, but nothing is official there yet.
