Ryan Reynolds has given fans a first look of Zazie Beetz’s Domino in “Deadpool 2.”
“Some people just know how to work a red carpet,” Reynolds tweeted Monday, revealing a photo of Domino perched on top of the Merc with a Mouth in front of Deadpool’s favorite fireplace.
The “Atlanta” star was cast to play Neena Thurman, aka Domino, in March. Domino is a former mercenary turned member of the X-Men and has the ability to manipulate luck as represented by her expert marksmanship. Domino is known for her witty personality. Created by writer Rob Liefeld, Domino first fully appeared in X-Force, vol. 1 #11 (June 1992). Domino also has a long history with time traveling Mutant Nathan Summers, aka Cable (who will be played by Josh Brolin).
As one of only two survivors of a government experiment called Project: Armageddon, Neena Thurman gained the ability to manipulate luck and became the mercenary, Domino. After working with Cable for a while, Domino eventually joined up with the X-Men to use her abilities for good.
“John Wick” co-director David Leitch will direct “Deadpool 2,” which also stars Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller and Leslie Uggams.
