Alright kids, it's official: Deadpool 2 has found its Domino in Zazie Beetz. Ryan Reynolds announced the news on Twitter with a clever image of dominos spelling out the Atlanta star's name:

The Domino slot has been buzzed about for weeks, with Kerry Washington rumored to be testing for the mutant superhero role. Shortly after, Janelle Monáe was reported to score the role until Deadpool writer Rhett Reese shut it down. Beetz as Domino will be her second major Hollywood casting since FX's Atlanta, where she plays Vanessa.

The actress joins the Marvel cast featuring Reynolds, Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Stefan Kapicic (Colossus) and Karan Soni (taxi driver Dopinder). As of now they are the only actors set for the sequel. David Leitch (2014's John Wick) will be directing the movie.
