Director David Leitch is deep in production on DEADPOOL 2 in Vancouver. While we have yet to see anything official regarding Deadpool’s highly-anticipated co-stars, Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz), Leitch did open up to Screen Rant about how the two iconic characters are being brought to the big screen for the first time.
On Domino’s unique power of probability manipulation aka good luck, Leitch says they found a cool way to display it on screen.
“(Laughs) We’re excited to play with that idea in choreography. I’m not going to give you how it’s all going to play out. As a choreographer, having a character with her abilities is really a trick. I think at first it seems like a problem. Like oh my god, how do you demonstrate luck? And then you just see it like, oh, this is the coolest opportunity ever, so we’re really excited and we’re creating really great stuff for her character.”
In the comics, Cable has a cool but complicated history of being the future son of Cyclops and Jean Grey’s clone, Madelyne Pryor. It seems they’re being mindful of what to show audiences in his debut appearance.
“Look, I think besides all of the Deadpool, sort of the film universe Deadpool, you kind of have to be selective of like how you approach these characters because there’s a canon of work that’s so massive that you could never put it all on screen. So we’ve been really particular what we’re going to put in and what we’re going to leave for potential future if it goes that way and, uh, I think you’ll like it. It’s all in the spirit of canon, and also in the spirit of like what Deadpool the movie is.”
“Deadpool” comes to theaters on June 1, 2018.
