Atlanta breakout Zazie Beetz will play Domino in Fox's Deadpool 2.
Leading man Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter to make the announcement, tweeting “domino effect,” along with a photo that spelled out the actress’ name with dominos - what else?

Domino is a mutant with telekinetic powers who serves as a member of the mercenary group Six Pack and later X-Force. Her partner, Cable, has yet to be cast.
David Leitch is directing Deadpool 2, taking over after the previous helmer, Tim Miller, exited the film last October due to creative differences with Reynolds. Original screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are also returning to pen the sequel.
The sequel was recently teased before showings of Hugh Jackman’s Logan.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on March 2, 2018.
