Four months after the casting confirmation of Zazie Beetz as Domino by Ryan Reynolds via Twitter, we have our first look at the Deadpool 2 actress in costume.
Replicating the hilarious Deadpool laying on bearskin rug photo (a parody of Burt Reynolds’ bearskin rug photo from Cosmopolitan Magazine), Domino strikes the same pose lying on Deadpool’s costume instead. The pic comes from Ryan Reynolds’ Twitter account and is accompanied by the caption, “Some people just know how to work a red carpet. #Domino #DeadPool2.”

Following rumours that Janelle Monae and Kerry Washington were up for the role of Domino in Deadpool 2, back in March Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to confirm that Zazie Beetz will play the character instead.
Zazie Beetz, who is known for role as Vanessa on the Atlanta TV series, will play Domino (aka Neena Thurman), a mutant with the ability to subliminally and psionically initiate random telekinetic acts that affect probability in her favour. Domino is extensively trained in armed combat, as well as in covert operations. She is a superb markswoman and is adept in the use of explosives.
