The cool kids of ATLANTA have been keeping busy despite news of the series not returning this year. For the most recent news; Zadie Beetz who plays Van in the series will be joining the cast of Deadpool 2 as Domino. Mashable helped spread the word.
Atlanta actress Zazie Beetz has just joined the cast of Deadpool 2 in the role of Domino, a mutant mercenary with the power of “subconscious telekinetic probability manipulation” — essentially, the gift of incredibly good luck. Beetz represents the first major piece of new casting for the highly anticipated superhero sequel. Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds announced the big news on Twitter today. The announcement comes after a lengthy casting process surrounded by intense speculation from fans. Early reports indicated that 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Orange Is the New Black’s Ruby Rose, and Star Trek Beyond’s Sofia Boutella were all in the mix at one point or another, and just yesterday, a rumor went around claiming Moonlight and Hidden Figures star Janelle Monáe had emerged as the frontrunner.
