With filming about to begin on Deadpool 2 towards the end of June, the cast continues to grow as 20th Century Fox recently hired another actress in the form of Japanese import Shiori Kutsuna.
She is said to be playing a key role opposite the returning Ryan Reynolds and a cast of newcomers that includes Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, a luck-manipulating mutant, and Josh Brolin as Cable, the time-traveling son of the X-Men’s Cyclops.
Jack Kesy (The Strain, Baywatch), meanwhile, is attacked to play the film’s central villain which, while unconfirmed, is rumored to be Irish mutant Black Tom Cassidy.
Other stars returning from the first Deadpool include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Stefan Kapicic as the voice of Colossus.
