Rob Liefeld Introduces a Movie-Accurate Domino to Deadpool’s Reality

A preview of X-Force: Killshot Anniversary Special # 1 features the introduction of Zazie Beetz’s Domino from Deadpool 2 in Marvel Comics.

As fans wait for news about Deadpool 3 at Marvel Studios, a character seen in Deadpool 2 it’ll make its way into the comics, and no, it’s not Peter.

Next week, Marvel Comics will celebrate X-Force’s 30th anniversary, the X Men-related gear that first appeared on New mutants # 100 in 1991. Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth, also celebrated its 30th anniversary this year, appearing only in two issues before X-Force. While the next celebratory one-shot X-Force: Killshot Anniversary Special # 1 will feature multiple versions of Deadpool, it will also feature some versions of Domino, including Zazie Beetz’s portrayal of the dead Pool continuation.

The final page drawn by Deadpool and X-Force creator Rob Liefeld (who co-created the character and team with screenwriter Fabian Nicieza) shows Domino how Beetz appears in the film, the first live representation of the character. On dead Pool 2, Domino is one of the only X-Force members to survive her first mission, with her and Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) working together to protect a young mutant, Russell (Julian Dennison), from the time-traveling mutant Cable. (Josh Brolin). Later, Cable would team up with Deadpool and Domino to take on Juggernaut and give Russell a small chance to avoid his villainous fate seen in the future.

While Beetz has shown interest in returning to the role in a future Marvel movie, this is the closest we’ve seen to the return of the live-action character. However, Beetz’s Domino isn’t the only movie character coming to Marvel Comics soon. While she is not included in a feature film (unless you count the Captain America movies), Captain Carter from Disney + What if…? will make his comic book debut in writer Jason Aaron and artist Aaron Kuder. Avengers forever December 22.
