David Leitch will be taking over the directors chair for the sequel from Tim Miller, where the original R-Rated superhero film made $782m worldwide on a $58m budget. The Domino character (also known as Neena Thurman) is a mutant/mercenary much like Deadpool, who has powers such as the ability to initiate random telekinect acts that turn probability in her favour. Also Domino has a close connection to another mutant named Cable, who will definitely appear in the Deadpool sequel though the actor playing the role is yet to be officially announced.
I’m a fan of this casting choice as Beetz was very good in Atlanta and considering the show is on hiatus until 2018, it was only a matter of time before she landed a role for a major studio for a big screen picture. As always when it comes to these casting announcements, you’re reminded of the shortlists that come out a few months before and of course the Domino casting one ended up being off completely.
