With "Deadpool 2" in pre-production, plenty of rumors are swirling around the sequel's plot and potential new characters. A few weeks ago, a rumor emerged that pegged Kyle Chandler and Mackenzie Davis as new members of "Deadpool's" cast, with the former as Cable and the latter as Domino. We already know Cable's in the sequel (the Mmrc himself confirmed that in the post-credits scene of "Deadpool"), but Domino's involvement is just a rumor. And, as Mackenzie Davis told GQ, her involvement is a rumor as well.
"No! [laughs] It's very interesting," said the "Halt and Catch Fire" star when asked about the Domino rumor. "People keep sending me printouts being like, 'This is so cool!' And I’m like, 'Right? I also think it’s cool! But it’s not true!' I mean. I’d love to keep the ruse going. It’s sort of cool that people think I’m doing 'Deadpool.' But no! I don’t have any news to share. I wish I did!"
With Cable a lock for "Deadpool 2," Domino's involvement would make sense. In the comics, Domino is one of Cable’s closest and oldest allies; the two go way, way back to their days as mercenaries in a group called the Six Pack. Domino served as a member of Cable’s X-Force, joining the team mostly because she wanted to do her longtime partner a favor. Cable and Domino have even been romantically linked from time to time, as their partnership flirted with being a full-blown relationship. Domino was first rumored to be part of "Deadpool 2" back in February.
