Even before Deadpool was a blockbuster success during its opening weekend, fans were crowing that Deadpool was going to rock their comic book movie world. FOX was also very confident in the new movie, green-lighting a sequel before that opening weekend. After that incredible box office crushing weekend, no one could deny the speeding train that was Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool would continue steam on to greater heights. Deadpool himself teased a return with Cable in the post credits, but we all know that there has to be more than just Cable in the sequel. Let the Deadpool 2 Character Rumor Mill grind…
Deadpool brought X-Men Colossus and X-Men trainee Negasonic Teenage Warhead to the big screen and we can be sure to see more X-Men related characters in the sequel. Cable of course, but we know he won’t be enough by himself. Domino is an easy guess,and Heroic Hollywood is citing un-named sources at FOX putting Domino right in Deadpool 2’s cross hairs.
Domino and Cable have been romantically on and off involved for a while, Deadpool and Domino have what would politely called a complicated relationship. She’s also a member of X-Force and it makes sense to introduce some of those characters to FOX’s X-Men Cinematic Universe before the planned X-Force film hits the big screen.
Here’s a fan film pitting Deadpool and Domino against Joker and Harley Quinn that sums up what the two might look like on the big screen.
Who might be tapped to play Domino? There’s always the every popular Emily Blunt, everyone wants her for just about every female comic book role that comes up. Kiera Knightley would be an interesting choice, mainly because she starred in the movie Domino, not the X-Men character, but the bounty hunter. It would be a nice coincidence if she ended up in the comic book role as well. Let’s not forget that Deadpool himself mentioned her in the post credits scene:
Oh! I can tell you one thing, and it’s a bit of a secret. The sequel? We’re gonna have Cable. Amazing character. Bionic arm, time travel! We have no idea who we’re going to cast yet, but it could be anyone. Just need a big guy with a flat top. Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Kiera Knightley? She’s got range – who knows? Big secret, shhh. Oh, and don’t leave your garbage all lying around. It’s a total dick move. Go! Chica-chica!
Who would you cast?
