When it comes to Deadpool 2, the biggest question we’ve got after, “who is playing Cable?” has got to be “Who is playing Domino?” It is starting to look like we might have our answer… and some people might find the answer to be truly scandalous! Yup, the rumor mill is currently pointing to Scandal’s Kerry Washington. Sources are saying that after both Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sienna Miller turned down the role, Washington is now testing for it.
A character casting description has also popped up for Domino, but the Studio is currently referring to her as Neena.
Female, All ethnicities, Late 20s – early 30s Sexy, lithe and athletic. She has a witty personality.
Neena is a no-nonsense badass who rarely shows her feeling. 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”.
