Deadpool 2: Will Kerry Washington Play Domino?

Having found the new director for the upcoming Deadpool movie, 20th Century Fox got back on its feet when it comes to this project. Recent rumors suggest that they will start filming the sequel this summer. What we know for sure is that the movie will feature two Marvel Comics characters, Domino and Cable, but the question is, who will take on these roles? A recent casting breakdown offers some hints on who will possibly play Domino, or Neena Thurman.

According to The Hashtag Show, Scandal star Kerry Washington might be the one to portray the great superhero, but it is also mentioned that the casting has not been completed yet, so this remains only an option. Even though some say the studio sees Washington as their first choice, there are also other actresses who may be good for the part, considering the fact that Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sienna Miller have already passed the audition.

For the time being, it is only confirmed that the actress who will play Domino needs to be in her late 20s or early 30s, she needs to be “lithe and athletic” and have “witty personality.” Let’s take a look at the full cast breakdown on this character: “Neena is highly capable, supremely confident and armored in… well ARMOR… and bullet-proof sarcasm. But beneath her shell she’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. It’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 she’d be more comfortable killing Silberman than saying ‘Please.’”

In case you are wondering who Silberman is, here’s what we think. This might be only a code name for another character. There is also a possibility that Silberman is an homage to Earl Boen’s Dr. Silberman from Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Furthermore, we cannot claim for sure that the very scene used in an audition is from the upcoming movie, either. Perhaps it’s actually from Terminator 2 which would mean that we are talking about a conversation between Linda Hamilton’s Sara Connor and Earl Boen’s Dr. Silberman.

Deadpool 2 release date has not been announced yet, but we assume the sequel might see the light of day sometime in 2018, if they start filming it this summer, as planned.
