Courtesy of Ryan Reynolds and Twitter, we finally have our first look at ‘Atlanta’ breakout Zazie Beetz in costume as Neena Thurman, aka the luck-altering badass Domino.
The image, captioned with “some people just know how to work a red carpet,” is a throwback to the first official image of Reynolds as the Merc with the Mouth – the one where he was lying on a rug in front of a huge fireplace. Check it out below.
Beetz herself took to Instagram to offer up a close-up look at her take on Domino.
Created by writer Fabian Nicieza and artist/co-writer Rob Liefeld, Domino is a mutant mercenary with the power of probability alteration. She is also the partner, confidante, and lover of the time-traveling mutant Cable..
Scheduled to arrive in cinemas June 2018, ‘Deadpool 2’ sees Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the titular Merc with the Mouth, alongside Monica Baccarin as Vanessa, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapacic as Colossus, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Karan Soni as one of Deadpool’s most memorable side characters, Dopinder. Beetz’s fellow newcomers include Josh Brolin (‘Hail, Caesar!’) as ‘X-Men’ favourite Cable and Jack Kesy (‘The Strain’).
