As we all know by this point, Deadpool is definitely getting a sequel, and why wouldn’t it? Everyone loved that movie. For those few fans who know to stay after the credits during a Marvel movie (it’s pretty much a given now honestly), then you remember being told that Cable is going to be in the sequel. No, we’re not talking about Direct TV when we say Cable, we’re talking about the mutant son of Cyclops from the future. But it’s been reported that Domino might also appear in this film. Pretty sweet, right? For those who don’t know, Domino who is a female mutant with the ability to initiate a form of telekinetic attacks that basically make things favorable for her. In short, she has psychic powers that bring her good luck. She’s also a skilled mercenary, hand-to-hand fighter, and markswoman. But who would we see playing these roles? Well that’s where this rumor comes in.
During an episode of Meet The Movie Press, it was revealed that Kyle Chandler (Bloodline) was apparently the name floating around the most of all actors to play Cable. While hewas absent from the names of actors teased at the end of the movie (those being Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, and strangely enough, Keira Knightley), he wouldn’t be bad for the role. He definitely has the build for the character, and he can be serious and brooding just like Cable.
As for Domino, they brought up the name of Mackenzie Davis, who at the moment isn’t very well known, other than her role in The Martian, which was a pretty good performance from her. However this would be a way more physical role for her, since domino is a fighter. Nevertheless, she;s set to be in Blade Runner 2, so maybe she’ll this will get her name out there more and lock her in for this specific role.
The biggest thing to do with this news is take it with a pretty big grain of salt. There’s been no official word on any of this, and the actors haven’t come forward to confirm a thing. However it’s still early, so you never know what could happen.
We want to know what you guys think about these alleged casting decisions. Who would you want to see play Cable and Domino in Deadpool 2? Sound of in the comment section below!
