Ryan Reynolds Reveals Who’s Playing Domino In ‘Deadpool 2’ Using Dominoes

Just days ago, it was rumored that Janelle Monae was the frontrunner to play this character over MacKenzie Davis, Lizzy Caplan, Sienna Miller and Kerry Washington. Turns out, there was an actress even higher on the list.

Ryan Reynolds announced via Twitter that Atlanta breakout star Zazie Beetz has been cast as the mutant mercenary, Domino, for Deadpool 2. Though she’s been an ally of Deadpool, she’s also been a thorn in his side.

The character first appeared in 1992’s X-Force #8. She’s a mutant with the power of probability alteration. She’s also the romantic interest for Cable, who is rumored to be joining the sequel as well.

Check out Reynold’s announcements below. In one, he used dominoes to spell out Zazie’s name. That Ryan, always so clever.

What do you think of Beetz’s casting? Weigh in afterward. Also, if you haven’t watched the first promo for the sequel, definitely do so. It’s hilarious.
