While Logan continues to win over critics and audiences, Fox is starting to create a buzz for Deadpool 2. The famous merc with a mouth surprised Hollywood by making over $300 million domestically. However, the sequel’s future started to look a bit murky with director Tim Miller supposedly leaving over creative differences. Now, Fox is trying to put that scandal behind them by releasing a surprise teaser and casting news.
In a bizarre post over Twitter, Ryan Reynolds announced that Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz was cast as Domino, a fellow mutant in the Deadpool universe. Beetz’s name may be a surprise for some since Janelle Monae was reportedly the frontrunner.
Domino was a founding member of the X-force come book team. In that series, she has frequently fought alongside Nathan Summers, also known as Cable. Cable is currently the biggest mystery in casting so far with multiple actors rumored to take on the role such as Pierce Brosnan and Kyle Chandler. Since there was an Easter Egg about the character in the teaser, we can probably expect an announcement sometime soon.
Even though we don’t know anything about Deadpool 2 yet, we do know one thing. With these big characters being announced, we are definitely getting an X-force movie.
