Will Kerry Washington star in Deadpool 2?

NEW ROLE?: Kerry Washington (left) and Domino (right)

AFTER THE massive success of Deadpool, casting for the highly anticipated sequel is reportedly under way, with rumours that Kerry Washington might be cast in the Marvel flick.

Two of the characters confirmed to appear in the upcoming film are Cable and Domino, and CBR is reporting that the Scandal star could be playing Domino while ex-James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan is being eyed for the role of Cable.

Washington last appeared on the big screen alongside Craig Robinson in Peeples in 2013, following a role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

In a recent interview, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch - who also worked on John Wick - said the DNA of the first film will remain intact.

“It’s going to be fun to spin out the world a little bit and expand it,” he told an interviewer. “But we want to stay true to that, the little superhero movie that could. It is the fun irreverent movie.”

Deadpool 2 is set for release on 2 March 2018.
