For awhile now, we have known that the mercenary Domino will be in Deadpool 2, and while we do not exactly know her precise role in the film, we have now learned that she will be very close to the comic book version. The guys over at The Hashtag Show were able to uncover the character breakdown! Check it out:
“Female, All ethnicities; Late 20s â€“ early 30s. Sexy, lithe and athletic. She has a witty personality. Neena is a no-nonsense bada$% who rarely shows her feeling. Highly capable, supremely confident and armored in . . . well ARMOR . . . and bullet-proof sarcasm. But beneath her shell sheâ€™s still and vulnerable and some soft, beating remnant of her humanity remains intact. In this scene we need to see both sides. When she can’t get what she needs with insults, bluster and threats we need to see some of that vulnerability. Itâ€™s hard for her to let down her guard, and in the mercenary community she grew up in showing compassion is almost embarrassing. We should feel like sheâ€™d be more comfortable killing Silberman than saying ‘Please’.”
This is not to surprising considering just how close to the comics that Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool. However, now that we know how Domino will line up, one must wonder who is on the shortlist to play Domino. One key phrase here is “All ethnicities.” Sienna Miller and Gugu Mbatha-Raw have already passed on the role, but there is one very interesting actress testing for the role: Kerry Washington of the hit show Scandal, who also played Broomhilda von Shaft in Django Unchained. She is wonderful in Scandal, and I think might fight in quite well. There is no word who Silberman is, but perhaps it is a code name for Gwenpool? Ok, that is doubtful, but it is fun to think about.
We can also assume that Cable is close to being cast as well, as Domino has had a lengthy on-and-off again relationship with him in the books. Either way, I am very excited to see this movie when it drops in 2018. What do you guys think? Deadpool & Cable? Domino & Gwenpool???
