This is exciting news because there has been revealed a character breakdown and short list of cast members for the Deadpool 2 movie. Domino, a.k.a. Neena Thurman, has been confirmed for the flick and a character break-down is asking that the role be seen regarding both her hard and softer sides.
Female, All ethnicities; Late 20s – early 30s.
Sexy, lithe, and athletic.
She has a witty personality.
Neena is a no-nonsense badass who rarely
shows her feeling.
Highly capable, supremely confident and
armored in…well ARMOR…and bullet-proof sarcasm.
But beneath her shell she’s still and
vulnerable and some soft, beating
remnant of her humanity remains intact.
In this scene we need to see both sides.
The description continues:
“When she can’t get what she needs with insults, bluster and threats we need to see some of that vulnerability. It’s hard for her to let down her guard, and in the mercenary community she grew up in showing compassion is almost embarrassing. We should feel like she’d be more comfortable killing Silberman than saying ‘Please’.”
It was noted that this could be a write-up on what is expected of the actor in portraying this description or somehow ties into what they’ll be doing in Deadpool 2. There is no mention of her cohorts Deadpool, a.k.a. Wade Wilson, and Cable here even though they clearly have a relationship with each other in the comics.
The Hashtag Show commentators figured this description to be very much spot on to that of the Domino in the comics.
There was also a short list of actresses that were slated for Domino. Live By Night’s Sienna Miller passed on it as well as Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
However, Kerry Washington is the frontrunner at this point and is testing for the part. She is older than the stated description as Washington is 40-years-old, according to ComicBook.com, but she probably looks young for her age.
Deadpool 2 is currently in production with a rumored release year of 2018.
