Attention Deadpool fans, this is very interesting news!
Recently, there was speculation that Kerry Washington was being looked at for the role of Domino in the Deadpool sequel. However, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds revealed earlier this month that actress Zazie Beet had been cast in the role. So what does that mean for Washington? Well, we’re still holding out hope she has some kind of part in the movie.
While at the Writers Guild Awards in February, the Scandal actress stopped to chat with Extra TV on the red carpet and of course they asked about the Deadpool 2 and Domino rumors.
“I don’t have anything to say about that,” Washington first said.
She later added that if she were offered the role that she would consider it.
“Of course I would, but of course you have to get the right person for whatever role,” she explained.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem totally promising that Washington will be in the film — particularly since the role of Domino has already been cast — but that doesn’t mean that if there is another Deadpool down the line that she couldn’t appear in it.
Fingers crossed Washington does come to the hero world soon, since she already kicks butt weekly on Scandal.
UPDATE: This post was updated throughout to include the fact that the role of Domino was recently cast.
Deadpool 2 is set to hit theaters on March 2, 2018.
