UPDATE: First Look At Domino in DEADPOOL 2… Is It Domino?
Splasheans, we still have a long way to go before we get a good look at Deadpool 2. But, fortunately, marketing at Fox is well aware that constant interaction with the rabid fans of the Merc with the Mouth is a good thing. We’ve seen a pretty aggressive campaign that began while the first film was still in theaters. Once the sequel was announced, it was game on. And, just like that, we even got little teasers. Tweets from Reynolds have been pretty revealing. Like how he broke word of Domino’s casting. Speaking of Domino, we were all treated to a gift today. Look and smile…
Where do we begin? First of all, Zazie Beetz is a very talented actress, and gorgeous. I hope to whatever is above us that her portrayal is spot on because she looks nothing like Domino. The hair doesn’t bother me, but they couldn’t have someone paint her white and give her a black circle around her eye? Did they think I would confuse her for another race? Bare in mind, I am a black man. Read the thread on that tweet, there are a lot of people that were caught off guard. Fox didn’t create Deadpool, the X-Men, or any of these Marvel characters but boy they sure love making changes.
Scarier thing is, now I’m terrified to look upon the character they call Cable. I’d almost be willing to bet two shekels that he looks nothing like Cable. And, somewhere there’s a moviegoer that never read a comic book going “what’s the big deal?!” It’s nothing that’s going to keep me up at night, but some of us have an attachment to these characters. I read comics pretty heavily in my childhood and dreamed of now. Not like this, but when comic book heroes would be in movie theaters. Especially the obscure ones like Deadsie. But, let this picture sink in and we’ll all just have to wait for whatever Reynolds treats us to next.
Deadpool 2 is set to hit theaters on June 1, 2018.
UPDATE: Here is a better look at Zazie Beetz as Domino in the upcoming sequel.
