Everything's coming up Deadpool, as the character continues his cultural zenith. After the incredibly successful Deadpool movie, the sequel is on the way for next year, and it will introduce some key figures to the series: Cable and Domino. Rob Liefeld, the creator of both Deadpool and Domino, could not be more excited to see the two of them on screen together. Being the creator of Deadpool and all, he has some storing opinions on how to do their dynamic in live-action, but he believes that the most important thing is that they A+ chemistry.
Rob Liefeld is enjoying Deadpool's rise in popularity in recent years, and spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the character and all of the many Deadpool-related projects in the works. When asked how he felt about Cable and Domino, two of the best known Deadpool supporting characters, making their debut in Deadpool 2, Liefeld was very excited for what is in store (he's especially a fan of that Josh Brolin casting). Liefeld praised the casting of Zazie Beetz as the mutant mercenary Domino and said that the key to success will be nailing the chemistry which, judging by his words, Ryan Reynold's and Beetz have a lot of.
It's kind of a "no duh" statement to say that co-stars need to have good chemistry, but Rob Liefeld isn't wrong. Half of liking Domino is liking her when she's with Deadpool. The better the two of them are together, the better the movie will be.
In the comics, Deadpool and Domino have a complicated relationship. Originally, the two shared an antagonistic relationship, with Deadpool having worked for someone who once kidnapped Domino. Since then the two have dated on and off, with Domino tolerating Deadpool about as much as anyone can. They typically share a nice back and forth with each other, so it'll be interesting to see how Deadpool 2 utilizes it.
Very little is known about Deadpool 2 at the moment. David Leitch is sitting in the director's chair this time around, working off a script from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with additional material provided by Drew Goddard. Ryan Reynolds returns as Deadpool and the sequel will at least partly deal with the trend of Hollywood making sequels. Morena Baccarin, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, and Brianna Hildebrand fill out the cast.
There's a whole lot to look forward to when Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1, 2018. To learn more about the sequel, make sure to check out everything we know.
