I think white-patch Domino is the way to go. Dominoes appear that way too.

In the comics, I think she was a secret science baby who was dropped off at a church.

If they invert her comics design, they'd still have to cover her in literal blackface to make the white spot stand out. Otherwise it may look like vitiglio.

Just leave her face normal and put a spot over her eye. I think that's the best option.

If true I think it's a good choice. He's a good actor. He's very tall by Hollywood standard (6'3"). From what I've seen he'd make a great straight-man to Deadpool.

Edit: Re: Domino I think I'd use make-up and CGI to make the skin albino pale with the black dot. Classic comic appearance. It's pretty iconic.

It's a weird situation. This is a character with a distinct appearance. But not a specified race. Also she isn't a non-human character like an alien like Gamora (which is a whole other discussion). She's a human being presumably born of a certain race, whose superhuman mutation has drastically altered her appearance, in the same way it has altered Nightcrawlers, he's a blue-skinned European.

So I would cast an actress of any color/race, then make her appearance similar to comics. In this case a black actress was chosen and I think that's great, because people of color are under represented. But I would still make her skin unnaturally white because that is her mutation, not white-washing or blackface.

The closest I can equate it to is treating Domino like an albino child of black parents.

Edit: Edit: But if you had a flashback or reference to pre-mutation Domino you would depict her as being the race of the actress chosen. So black in this case.

Brad Pitt wanted to play Cable but it didn't work out that way. So far.

Oooh. He's got decent comedic timing, especially as a straight man. I can see it.

I mean the comedy term "straight man", not a man who isn't gay. FYI. >_>

It won't happen, but I won't be mad if this is the plot of the new Cable solo series.

Jack Kesy cast as a villain Deadpool 2. Rumor mill suggests he's Black Tom.

First pics of Domino are surfacing and it looks like they've invested her with a white spot on the eye. I'm gonna have to take a bit of time to decide if I like it. I theory it shouldn't matter but years of reading Domino in comics is saying otherwise. I have the utmost faith though that the writing team behind it will do a kickass job with her personality.

AHH! Yes! That's exactly what I wanted! She looks so cool.

For anybody who wants a look, here.


I mean, Negasonic Teenage Warhead is white skinned, has dreads, and is a precog in the comics. Also, Deadpool isn't a mutant. Vanessa Carlysle is also a mutant and a shapeshifter with blue skin and white hair. So yeah, things are changed. I personally really like this, though.

I think she looks amazing but just doesn't feel like Domino. It's the stark contrast of chalk white skin and a black spot just has such a great image (like Cable's glowing eye or Storm's white hair). I would've been okay with a very dark-skin sistah with a bright white spot, if they didn't want to put anybody in full body paint. But her having a case of vitiligo just doesn't scream mutant to me, just a normal person.

Ehhh, still too normal looking (there's some gorgeous models with essentially the same mark on their face). Honestly, as lightskin as she is they could've still gave her the black spot.

There are. I'd assume it'd be hard to find a good actress who also has the exact pigment placement they'd need. I could be wrong, though.

She could've totally done a black spot over her eye; you're right. I still like it, though.

Yeah I'm not trying to be nitpicky just that she looks too much like a normal human to me...a f***ing beautiful one but still normal. Whereas Domino always looked visually like a mutant. And I like that about her. Even an actual Black spot would have been a mutant thing more than what they have. And it's odd they went so lowkey in a film where DP looks so out there.

True...at least with her, she's such a drastic departure from her comic book counterpart (amd so obscure) I had little reference for her lol

As I suspected, they inverted her design so she has a white mark over her eye. It’s just not as dynamic because they didn’t go all the way with giving her inhumanly pitch black skin for contrast. She gets a less generic costume than typical movie X-Men or her next Marvel Legend, although it looks more like movie Gamora than her comics wardrobe. https://mattthecatania.wordpress.com/20 ... ic-blonde/

I like the teddy bear. Makes me think Hope is on her way.

But yeah I dig Cable. He looks real. Sometimes in the comics he is OTT but I am down with this version.
