Deadpool was a hit with both critics and fans when it debut in theaters this past winter, setting records for R-rated films, Fox’s X-Men franchise, and the month of February. Naturally, a sequel is development. While we don’t know much about its plot, the Merc with a Mouth was kind enough to give us a fourth-wall breaking teaser in his first film’s stinger. The sequel will involve the other half to his odd couple – the time-travelling Cable. He’ll be played by anyone who can pull off a flat top. Maybe Keira Knightley.
Just yesterday, the rumor began circulating that Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street) may be Fox’s current number one pick for Cable in the sequel. Not only that, apparently Domino will also feature in the film, and Mackenzie Davis (The Martian) is under consideration for the role.
Never one to back down from a fan conceptualization with a day’s turnaround, the ever diligent Boss Logic dropped a killer design of Mackenzie in her rumored role. Take a look:
While neither these casting choices or designs are any kind of guarantee of the final product, Boss Logic has a knack for capturing the potential of rumors and fan casting in succinct visuals. You’ve very likely seen his prior work with any number of recent properties, including Anna Kendrick as Squirrel Girl, Bryan Cranston as Zordon, Donald Glover as alt-Spider-Man Miles Morales, or the successfully predicted Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.
If there’s anything we learned about director Tim Miller’s approach to costume design from the first Deadpool, it’s that if it’s not broke, he won’t fix it. Deadpool and Colossus were dead ringers for their comic iterations, and Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s New Mutants costume was probably the most comic-accurate X-uniform we’ve seen on screen yet. Boss Logic’s approach to Domino looks very similar to her own comic appearances, so regardless of the actors in the outfits, it’s probably not too far off from what we’ll actually see when Deadpool returns to the screen.
Do you have a favorite iteration of Cable or Domino that you hope to see on the big screen? Are these the right actors to bring the duo to life? Let us know your thoughts in the usual place, and stay tuned to Screen Rant for updates on Deadpool 2 as they hit.
Wolverine 3 opens in U.S. theaters on March 3rd, 2017, followed by unannounced X-Men films on October 6th, 2017, March 2nd, 2018, and June 29th, 2018. Deadpool 2, Gambit, New Mutants andX-Force are currently in development.
