Ryan Reynolds reveals today on Twitter, the first official look at Zazie Beetz as Domino.
Domino’s real name is Neena Thurman and was one of many children born to the U.S. government’s Project: Armageddon, designed to genetically engineer the perfect weapon using a precognitive mutant named Beatrice.
This will be the film debut for the superhero, who is portrayed in the comics as a mercenary and long-time partner to Cable, a.k.a. Nathan Summers, a character already confirmed to appear in the sequel.
David Leitch is directing the sequel and the movie is heading towards a June production start in Vancouver. Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as Deadpool, with Atlanta star Zazie Beetz as the super-powered merc named Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable.
Deadpool 2 opens in theaters on June 1, 2018.
