Theatrical version released.
Janelle Monáe reported to be new frontrunner for Domino.
Forgive me if this comes off as crude, I do not intend it as offensive. There have been two black actresses rumored for the role so far. Does this mean they are going to change the look of the character? Her actual skin color hasn't been consistently colored as bleached in the comics, just like how colorists forget that Wolverine is supposed to have blue eyes.
I would love either Washington or Monáe in the role, both are fantastic actresses. It just worries me that people might get up in arms over the makeup if they see a black actress painted white and not realize that's the character, you know?
They'll probably reinterpret the character's look. I don't think many fans pitched a fit when they did a reinterpretation of Vanessa for DP1.
Domino has officially been cast but it's not Janelle or Kerry whose playing the role but rather Zazie Beetz
I admit I never heard of her as I never even heard of Atlanta before but eh if the team has confidence in her for the role so do I. And honestly I don't think it will be a problem casting an African American women to play Domino. Honestly with how Zoe Saldana plays Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy they'll likely give Dominio that level of face painting that will still be true enough to the comics without it coming across as offensive. Though I hope with Domino cast we officially get word on Cable and hey since Zazie wasn't talked about before, Cable could be entirely different as well.
3/12: Brianna Hildebrand has not read a script yet but she has seen concept art and wardrobe ideas for Negasonic.
3/18: Buttload of news that mostly just hint at stuff.
*Writers on working with David Leitch.
*Will be some obscure characters on diehard fans will know
*Writers on Deadpool-Cable dynamic.
Squirrel Girl is considered obscure? Not obscure enough for Wolverine...
The contenders for Cable are a 'short, short list' and we should hearing who got the role real soon. Production starts in a few months then cast announcements will start coming.
Apparently Michael Shannon is now a contender for the role of Cable.
I can actually totally picture this, even if he recently played a major CBM villain.
That was long enough away for me (2013). So I could see this.

Shannon as Cable would be pretty awesome. I would definitely be down for that .
Also be nice to see that Shannon hasn't been turned away from comic book movies .
If I'm not mistaken, he did say he was up for alot genre films just last year. He turned them down cause of schedule I think. Some people believe Disney with Marvel and Star Wars has been after him.

It would also give the film some joke material for his character a la the Green Lantern jokes in the original film.
He doesn't look like Cable to me... The Nathan Fillion rumor was slightly better imo.
Eh, not feeling it either. EDIT: Idk @Frontier, he weirds me out. Maybe it's the voice he does.
So Brad Pitt is back in the mix for Cable...
Uh, this one out of left field... Brad Pitt was/maybe still is in the running for Cable.
There are also images floating around of him worked up as Cable but since I have no reliable source for them, I'm not linking to them. You can google them if you want.
Edit: heh, didn't see you mentioned it already Yojimbo. But I'm still surprised.
My inclination if I was casting was to build a time machine, cast 1980s Arnold and take him back with me to the present and cast Ron Perlman to do voice over and dub over Arnold.
This would probably be the best of both worlds, as far as doing Cable justice .
Pitt is out of the running due to schedule conflicts.
...I wasn't seriously banking on him accepting the role anyways, so no surprise there .
Pierce denies the Cable rumors and explains that photo he took with Jackman and Reynolds.
