Short List of Actresses to Play Domino in Deadpool 2

It is believed that Fox has a short-list of actresses they’re bringing in for the role of Domino in the sequel to Deadpool.

According to Collider, the shortlist of sctresses being looked at for the role of Domino include Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield LaneScott Pilgrim vs. the World), Lizzy Caplan (Now You See Me 2Masters of Sex), Sienna Miller (BurntAmerican Sniper), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek BeyondKingsman: The Secret Service) Stephanie Sigman (NarcosSpectre), Sylvia Hoeks (OverspelBlade Runner 2049), Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire), Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black), Eve Hewson (The Knick), and Kelly Rohrbach (Baywatch).

Who is Domino?  I’m glad you asked.  Collider went on to describe the character saying the following:

“Like Deadpool, Domino is a mercenary and a mutant, and her powers include the ability to initiate random telekinetic acts that turn probability in her favor. Additionally, she has a close connection to the mutant Cable, as her comics history found her becoming a partner, confidante, and lover of the mutant and frequent frenemy of Deadpool. It was previously confirmed during the post-credits sequence for Deadpool that Cable will appear in Deadpool 2, so the inclusion of Domino in the sequel as well makes sense.”

Cable has already been confirmed for the sequel although there haven’t been any casting news for the role as of yet.  The director name-dropped Jon Hamm (Mad Men) as his ideal choice, but there hasn’t been any news about him or anyone else seriously being considered for the part.  The reason that could be important in this casting is because Cable is because he’s traditionally shown as being an older man (anywhere for 50s-70s, but he’s a mutant so he’s still in peak physical form despite looking older) who has traveled back in time.  Most of the actresses mentioned are on the young side.  Since the characters are romantically linked in the comics, it’d seem weird if someone like Stephen Lang (a popular fan choice for Cable) gets cast alongside an actress around 30 years old.

Who is your pick to play Domino in Deadpool 2?  There’s no release date set but I will keep you posted on any new info that drops about this project.  Stay tuned.
