We finally know who is set to play Domino in the highly anticipated Deadpool 2, and it might be a small surprise – Zazie Beetz.
Fans of the Donald Glover series Atlanta on FX know Beetz as Van Keefer, the ex-girlfriend to Glover’s Earn Marks, and also the mother of the character’s daughter.
Domino is another character in the X-Men extended universe making her way to the Deadpool arena, making her first live-action appearance through Beetz. The character was first introduced in 1991, created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld – the two men who also created Deadpool himself.
Domino likely will be a love interest to another X-Men universe character, Cable, who has yet to be cast.
Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds announced Beetz’s casting through a quick series of tweets, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
