"Atalanta" star Zazie Beetz has been cast to play Neena Thurman, aka Domino, in "Deadpool 2", TheWrap has learned.

Nothing about "Deadpool" is ever boring, not even a casting announcement.

Harlem-based Beetz is every bit the bohemian beauty proudly growing out her armpit hair, attending Women's Marches, and sporting trendy millennial tattoos.

"Domino Effect", he captioned a cryptic photo that spelled out Zazie's full name.

He was selected to the Pro Bowl again in 2009. "It's certainly a different game", said Chris Jones, Saskatchewan's head coach/GM. He announced his retirement in 2014, but Saskatchewan has kept him on its negotiation list in case he chose to resume playing.


The Berlin-born New Yorker is best known for her role as Donald Glover's babymama Vanessa "Van" Keefer in FX dramedy series Atlanta, which was renewed for a second season. She has managed to survive many battles and life-threatening injuries through the power of luck alone.

Prior to the casting of Zazie Beetz, there were other actresses that were favored to take the role of Domino. She's a member of the X-Force, just as Deapool has been.

"John Wick" co-director David Leitch will direct "Deadpool 2", which is due to begin filming this summer. And, being Deadpool related, we learned about it in the weirdest way. If Fox can give her costume the realism it has managed to give Deadpool and Colossus, then Zazie is sure to be a comic fan's live action dream come true.

What seems most obvious at this moment is that if all goes well, "Deadpool 2" won't be the last time Beetz will play Domino. She also has quick reflexes.
