Deadpool star and producer Ryan Reynolds has announced via his Twitter account that Zazie Beets (‘Atlanta’) will be playing Domino in Deadpool 2.

John Wick co-director David Leitch will helm the sequel (Tim Miller, who directed the first, stepped down from the project citing creative differences), with Reynolds set to reprise the role and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick also returning to pen the screenplay.
Apart from Domino, Deadpool 2 is also set to introduce the character of Cable, who is yet to be cast. There are also rumors of a third movie already in the works.
Recently, a sort-of teaser trailer for Deadpool 2, ‘No Good Deed’ was shown before screenings of Logan and subsequently released online. It is a brief, humorous short that doesn’t appear to have anything to do with the planned sequel.
Deadpool 2 is set to come out sometime in 2018.
