The world’s rudest, crudest superhero is heading back into theaters next summer — and he’s got some pretty cool, new company. Case in point: Ryan Reynolds, who plays the title character, took to Twitter to share the first image from Deadpool 2, which features Zazie Beetz as a mutant mercenary named Domino.
She’s laying down and crushing Deadpool, who’s right underneath her. The text reads, “Some people just know how to work a red carpet. #Domino #DeadPool2.” And yeah, Domino does seem to know how to work it!
What’s more, the image looks to be a play on some of the promotional imagery that went out for the original Deadpool, which was a play on a famous Burt Reynolds photo. This is just all so meta!
Not only does Domino take a badass picture, but she also has the ability to change her luck through telekinesis.
Also, she’s the partner of Cable, played by Josh Brolin — who has been getting super in shape for the role, as evidenced by all these extremely muscle-y Instagram posts:
Reynolds recently joked with Extra about all that impressive muscle gain. “Yeah, I’m actually worried about him,” he quipped. “Josh’s arms are the size of my torso!”
The two actors are set to play partners-in-crime for the sequel, and Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld said audiences will need to prepare themselves for the explosiveness of their dynamic. "[Reynolds] is such a great actor, that's where it starts, and gravitas, and who else really is going to hold their ground with Ryan as Wade/Deadpool" Liefeld told ComicBook.com. "That is energy unbridled, and so you've gotta hold your ground. When I see the two of them I'm like 'It's going to be comic book's equivalent to Rush Hour,' and I don't know if comic fans are ready for it. I think it's going to be great."
Welp, that sounds like the ultimate #squadgoals right there.
Needless to say, we cannot wait to see all of this (inevitably) NSFW action when Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1st, 2018.
