When Deadpool was released in February of 2016, it took a lot of the audience by surprise, particularly considering how botched Reynolds’ first appearance as a different form of the character was in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. From the first frames of the film, it was obvious that this was going to be different than any other superhero film — or hero — out there.
Deadpool 2 has been in production for a while now, and details are slowly being revealed, the most recent of which is that the first photo of Zazie Beetz as Neena Thurman/Domino has been released. Part of the X-Men in the comics, Domino — besides being an amazing fighter and an ace sharp-shooter — is a mercenary who has the mutant ability of manipulating luck.
She also happens to be the sometimes girlfriend of the film's villain, Cabel (Josh Brolin). The actress portraying her is German-born and her most prominent role to date as been in the TV series Atlanta. Ryan Reynolds tweeted the following image, commenting, "Some people just know how to work a red carpet." Speaking of Cable, the latest Deadpool 2 trailer shows him going up against Deadpool, confirming the crux of the story, take a look below.
It's clear that even in situations of high-pressure, Deadpool is going to continue to be the same biting, sarcastic, anti-hero we have all come to know and love. Question is, with Cable being such a powerful force, does Deadpool have what it takes to protect "the kid"? Additionally, not to throw any shade, but we're thinking the "X-force" doesn't hold a candle to The Avengers, or do they? We guess we're just going to have to wait and find out.
