The cast of FX’s Atlanta is doing great things, most notably in the Marvel realm! From Donald Glover having entered multiple Disney projects (one of which had recently been Spider-Man: Homecoming portraying Aaron Davis aka The Prowler) to Brian Tyree Henry in Sony’s untitled animated Spider-Man movie as the voice of Jefferson Davis. Now, we have Zazie Beetz entering the Deadpool sequel as Neena Thurman, also known in the Marvel comics as Domino.
With 10 months left to go, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds took to social media and released the first official photo of the actress in costume as the master markswoman. Take a look down below:
UPDATE: Two closer looks at the actress as the mutant mercenary were released soon after. Here they are:
The sequel to the 2016 film features an all-star ensemble cast. This includes Ryan Reynolds as the titular character Wade Wilson/ Deadpool, Morena Baccarin (Gotham, The Flash) as Vanessa/ Copycat, T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley, How to Train Your Dragon) as Weasel, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapičić as Colossus. The Atlanta actress will be a new addition to next year’s 20th Century Fox project alongside Josh Brolin (The Goonies, Infinity War) as Nathan Summers/ Cable. Their inclusion in the movie will also pave way for future films in the X-Men cinematic universe dealing with Deadpool and the X-Force. We have yet to see a first look at Josh Brolin as the time traveling soldier. Deadpool 2 arrives in theaters on June 1, 2018.
