Deadpool 2 casts Atlanta star Zazie Beetz as Domino

As the cast of Deadpool 2 begins filling out, the sequel to the smash hit added an actress on the verge of stardom. Ryan Reynolds tweeted today that Zazie Beetz, co-star of the FX dramedy Atlanta, will be taking on the role of Domino in the sequel. Domino is a familiar name to fans of the comic book series, having debuted in the same issue as Deadpool. She is a mercenary who survived a clandestine government program that was trying to create super soldiers.

Beetz has more than held her own against multi-talented actor Donald Glover (aka Young Lando) in the actor’s ode to the city of Atlanta. And this new high profile role will be sure to showcase her talents against an equally game comedic foil in Reynolds.
