After months of speculation, rumors, front-runners, shortlists and lots of guesswork, Domino has finally been cast in “Deadpool 2.” But naturally, it’s a name that was on nobody’s radar.
Ryan Reynolds himself revealed that Zazie Beetz has joined the blockbuster sequel, in what is easily her most high profile role to date. The actress is perhaps best known as Van on the hit FX series “Atlanta,” but you also might’ve seen her in a couple of episodes of Joe Swanberg‘s Netflix series “Easy.” Either way, she’s about to see a huge leap in attention and she’ll be taking quite a ride on the comic book train. But before we see Beetz in “Deadpool 2,” she’ll hit the big screen this summer in Chance The Rapper‘s comedy “Slice.”
Still no release date yet for “Deadpool 2” but it sounds like things are starting to come together, and 2018 looks very likely.
