Today it was revealed that there is a short list of actresses that Fox is looking at to play Domino in Deadpool 2.
For those of you who don't know, Domino is a mutant mercenary who has the ability to alter probability (essentially granting herself impossibly good luck). She has a long history of working with and against the Merc with a Mouth, so it will be interesting to see how the character will be used in the upcoming sequel. Typically these two have been close allies and could even be considered friends.
Currently, the actresses being considered include Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield), Sofia Boutella (Star Trek: Beyond), Sienna Miller (G.I. Joe), Stephanie Sigman (Spectre) and Sylvia Hoeks (the upcoming Blade Runner 2049). All of whom are incredibly solid choices to play the character.
Domino is known for being a heavy hitter in the world of comic book mercenaries and has a distinct look to her (she sports incredibly pale skin and a dark circle over one eye, kinda like a dalmatian). She is also known for wearing catsuits and carrying a lot of heavy fire power, thanks to her creator, Rob Liefield's, penchant for large guns and lots of pockets. Best of all though, she's tough enough to give Deadpool a run for his money.
While there is no word on who might be in the lead among these actresses, I'm not holding out high hopes for Lizzy Caplan or Stephanie Sigman who both have various projects in preproduction. Sofia Boutella recently snagged a role in Universal's monster cinematic shared universe, which could impact her schedule. The best bets might just be Sienna Miller, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Sylvia Hoeks (who has various projects filming currently). No matter what, though, it seems like Fox couldn't go wrong with any of these actresses and it's going to be great to see the character on the big screen.
Of course, this is just a rumor right now, so it's best to take this short list at face value. Given this list though, who would you want to see play Domino in Deadpool 2?
*UPDATE: It would seem that some new names have also been tossed into the ring, as it's rumored that Ruby Rose (John Wick 2), Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire), Eve Hewson (The Knick), and Kelly Rohrbach (Baywatch). It's important to note though that Mackenzie Davis has stated that the part has not been offered to her, so she may only be being considered to audition for it and not yet a serious contender. *
Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds and is rumored to star Kyle Chandler as Cable. The film is set to be released in 2018.
