Nothing about "Deadpool" is ever boring, not even a casting announcement.
Ryan Reynolds put together a creative tweet to announce his newest "Deadpool 2" co-star on Thursday. He managed to (sort of) spell out Zazie Beetz's name in dominoes. The implication seems clear: She'll be playing the Marvel character Domino.

Beetz is new to Marvel flicks, but she's not new to acting. She currently stars as Vanessa on the Golden Globe-winning series "Atlanta" and previously appeared in Netflix's "Easy." Her role in "Deadpool 2" will be her highest-profile to date.
Domino should be a fun role for Beetz. The character is known from the comics for being an excellent shot and skilled fighter ... and she just so happens to be able have probability-altering mutant powers. She's a member of the X-Force, just as Deadpool has been.
We'll see how the Domino effect affects the Merc with the Mouth when the film comes out. "Deadpool 2" is expected to hit theaters in 2018.
