What do you think of Zazie Beetz’s new look as Domino in DEADPOOL 2?

DEADPOOL 2 star and producer Ryan Reynolds debuted the first official photo of Zazie Beetz as Domino today. Beetz looks so fierce as the female mutant mercenary, we’ve put her on our homepage for a temporary feature.

Domino’s look is receiving both praise and criticism from comic book fans. In the comics, the character has chalk-white skin and a black circle over her eye. While Beetz has a darker skin complexion, many were still hoping for her to look as she does in the Marvel comics books. Domino’s skin color is due to her mutation and really isn’t beholden to her race. She’s not Caucasian “white,” but literally has no pigmentation. Instead, they opted to keep her skin mostly untouched except for the area around her eye, with the eye itself having a lighter color. It appears she’ll have a form of vitiligo, which is kinda genius, in our opinion.

There could be many reasons for the change, both creatively and to possibly avoid potential controversy. Whatever the reasons, we think Beetz is a phenominal actress and will do the role justice.
