SPOILER ALERT: If you still haven’t seen ‘Deadpool’ this article discusses certain SPOILERS, so consider yourself warned.
Shortly before ‘Deadpool’ opened, Ryan Reynolds stated that making an ‘X-Force’ movie was a top priority. Then, even before ‘Deadpool’ opened, 20th Century Fox greenlit a sequel, perhaps due to the overwhelming excitement fans were expressing about the opening. Finally, in the post-credits scene of ‘Deadpool’, Reynolds, as the titular Merc with a Mouth, teased that the sequel would include Cable, the futuristic mutant cyborg who founded X-Force in the comics, a team that Deadpool originally battled, but eventually joined.
Now comes word that in addition to Cable, the ‘Deadpool’ sequel will introduce another member of the team– Domino, who is typically shown as being Cable’s second-in-command. She possesses incredible luck – good luck – while her enemies tend to encounter bad luck. She is also an expert hand-to-hand combatant and marksman.
Deadpool and Domino both made their first appearances in the same comic book ‘The New Mutants’ #98 (1991)… well, kinda. A few issues in, it turned out that this Domino wasn’t the real deal, but rather Vanessa Carlyle, the female love interest in the ‘Deadpool’ movie played by Morena Baccarin. In the comics, Vanessa is known as the mutant Copycat, however, in the movie, Vanessa is not a mutant, so it’s anyone’s guess if there will be any connection between the movie Domino and Vanessa.
Fox had an ‘X-Force’ movie in the works which would have included Cable and Domino, along with founding members Cannonball, Feral and Warpath. That version of the film was killed, but now it looks like a new spin will be developed and after the unbelievable success of ‘Deadpool’, expect this film to depict a more recent incarnation of the team including him. Other potential members could include Colossus, who appeared in ‘Deadpool’, Warpath who appeared in ‘Days of Future Past’ and Psylocke and Nightcrawler who are both in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’.
The ‘Deadpool’ sequel is currently being written by returning team Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and Tim Miller is also expected to return to direct.
The news of Domino’s inclusion hasn’t been officially confirmed (so grain of salt) but with Cable a sure bet, it would make perfect sense to include her.
Would you like to see Domino on the big screen? Who should play her?
