Tim Miller is anxious to get the sequel to the fourth-largest R-rated movie of all time in front of the cameras. But before he can do that, the Deadpool 2 director first has to find his Domino.
And the list, according to Collider is long. Quite long. Sorry.
Domino is a mutant with skills similar to an X-Men character Longshot that allows her to be great in battle, especially if she needs to take aim. She was first introduced in the comics in 1991, and although she has popped up in X-Men cartoons and videogames, this would be her live-action debut.
So who will be the first to play Domino? Here’s the list so far.
She earned a key role in this past summer’s Star Trek: Beyond and will also get to play the villain in Tom Cruise’s The Mummy remake. She got her start, of all places, as a backup dancer for singer Madonna.
She’s set to appear already in the highly anticipated Blade Runner 2047 from director Denis Villeneuve, where she’ll appear alongside the likes of Jared Leto and Robin Wright. She’s also one of the stars of AMC’s quiet hit, Halt and Catch Fire.
A one-time regular on the Cinemax historical series The Knick, Hewson also is set to play Maid Marian alongside Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx in Robin Hood: Origin. She also has something Deadpool could play off of – she’s the daughter of singer Bono.
We’d like to say Hoeks has an impressive resume, but nearly all of her previous work is from her home country, the Netherlands. However, she is working with Mackenzie Davis in Blade Runner 2047.
She was nominated for a Golden Globe for playing Tippi Hedren in HBO’s Alfred Hitchcock biopic The Girl. Her other credits include Stardust and American Sniper. Also, she played the Baroness in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
A character actress on several shows including Rizzoli & Isles, The New Normal and Broad City, Rohrbach is appearing in the film version of Baywatch with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.
She’s probably best known for her 2016 run as the tattooed Stella Carlin in Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black. But she is stacking up some serious geek credits, landing roles in three upcoming films: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, xXx: Return of Xander Cage and John Wick: Chapter 2.
A regular in the short-lived series The Bridge as well as Netflix’s popular Narcos, she also appeared in the James Bond film Spectre in 2015.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
A Daytime Emmy winner for The Beauty Inside, Winstead’s geek credits include Wolf Lake, Tru Calling, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. She’s appearing in the third season of FX’s Fargo, and was part of the recently cancelled BrainDead. Oh yeah, and she was Michelle in 10 Cloverfield Lane.
One person we know is definitely returning is Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds. And once some of the casting is finished, and there’s a script everyone is ecstatic about, Marvel can set a release date for either late 2017 or early 2018.
Deadpool is ranked No. 7 for the year in worldwide box office, according to The Numbers, with $783.8 million. The top of that list? Captain America: Civil War with $1.2 billion.
