The rumor mill is buzzing with casting reports for two favorite characters from the Marvel comics in DEADPOOL 2. If all of the reports are true, we might be seeing Kyle Chandler step into the role of the time-travelling, cyber-armed, telekinetic soldier Cable, while Mackenzie Davis is being considered for the role of badass gunslinging mutant Domino.
This news comes to us from via Meet the Movie Press where Jeff Sneider of Mashable.com said these rumors are to be taken with a “huge grain of salt.” Before Chandler’s name was thrown into the ring for Cable, there were other names circulating for the role including Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, and event Keira Knightley. As for the role of Dominio, Sneider described her as a “scene stealer” of the movie.
Chandler is best known for his role as Coach Taylor from TV’s Friday Night Lights. He currently stars in the Netflix drama Bloodline and has an extensive resume of high-profile films including Carol and The Wolf of Wall Street. He can be seen next in the Sundance favorite Manchester by the Sea.
Davis currently stars in the AMC series Halt and Catch Fire and recently starred in the Golden Globe-winning film The Martian. She was recently cast in the untitled Blade Runner sequel.
