A recent casting call described Domino like this:
Neena is a no-nonsense badass who rarely shows her feeling. Highly capable, supremely confident and armored in… well ARMOR… and bullet-proof sarcasm. But beneath her shell she’s still and vulnerable and some soft, beating remnant of her humanity remains intact.
I’m a big fan of Zeetz’s work on Atlanta, and I’m excited to see her have the opportunity to step up in a huge movie like this. Recent rumors pegged Moonlight and Hidden Figures star Janelle Monae as the frontrunner for the part, but that obviously didn’t end up being the truth. Zeetz beat out reported contenders ranging from Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Sofia Boutella to Lizzy Caplan and Ruby Rose, with many others in between. Deadpool 2 debuted a short film before Logan, and will arrive in theaters sometime in 2018.
