So much of the casting rumors swirling around Deadpool 2 have focused on Cable that few have stopped to ask the question, what about Domino?
One actress that effectively ruled herself out of the equation during the summer months was Mackenzie Davis (Halt And Catch Fire), and since then, casting tidbits have been few and far between. Bringing an end to that admittedly brief radio silence today is Collider.
Citing a trusted source close to 20th Century Fox, the outlet has unearthed a report claiming that the current persons of interest include Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), Sienna Miller (American Sniper), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), and Sylvia Hoeks (Overspel).
Domino, a skilled mercenary and mutant much like the Merc With a Mouth, is one of the big new additions going into Deadpool 2. Her arc neatly dovetails with that of Cable’s, and the fact that Collider reports that testing is underway for Domino leads us to believe that Fox and director Tim Miller have already settled on their Cable. Don’t Breathe actor Stephen Lang emerged as the frontrunner some weeks ago, but until we catch wind of an official announcement, take that one with a pinch of salt.
Deadpool 2 is still without a firm release date at this time, but rest assured development is moving forward. Tim Miller will be back to direct Ryan Reynolds as the Merc With a Mouth, and we’ll be keeping close tabs on the sequel’s casting cycle as this story develops, so stay tuned.
