Zazie Beetz is giving fro, leathers and guns for days as the badass, mutant probability-altering Domino.
This past spring we learned that the Atlanta star would appear in Marvel’s Deadpool 2 and now we’ve got the visuals! Beetz’s Deadpool 2 co-star Ryan Reynolds dropped the first photo from the new flick on his Instagram with the caption. “Some people just know how to work a red carpet.”
If you look closely, Beetz is sprawled across Wade Wilson’s (Reynolds) Deadpool suit. Obviously, the two mercenaries are being pitted against one another.
When Reynolds originally announced Beetz’s casting he casually tweeted two words, “Domino Effect.”
Beetz breakout role was as Van, Ern’s (Donald Glover) BFF and the mother of his daughter in FX’s Atlanta. She also appeared in the Netflix anthology series Easy. Now, it looks like she’s ready to take the superhero game by storm. According to Marvel Comics, Domino (a.k.a Neena Thurman) is a member of the X-Men offshoot X-Force. She has legendary marksman abilities and is also known to be the partner, confidante, and lover of the superhero Cable.
According to IMDB, Cable is being portrayed in Deadpool 2 by acclaimed actor Josh Brolin. We guess we’ll just have to wait and see if that whole love thing is going to pan out on the big screen.
Deadpool 2 is rumored to hit theaters in June 2018. With Atlanta also returning next year, the 26-year old star is gearing up to shut down both the big and small screens, and we’re not mad at her.
