    A Domino movie? Zaz, go to Disney+…A Domino SERIES is coin of the realm for bit actors now.

    Of course, the only reason Domino was in the movie was that Deadpool 2 was originally Fox’s idea to set up a “Deadpool universe”, where Cable would find the New Mutants and set up “X-Force”.
    And okay, now that THAT’S not going to happen for a variety of reasons…

    “What is most odd about Disney not having Beetz return is with their current focus on featuring a diverse cast in their superhero films they would be eliminating one of the few women of color in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

    First of all, why does it have to be about race?

    Second of all, you’re writing as if there are so few women of color in Marvel Studios productions. Let’s review. Here’s a list of every actress of color that has played a starring/lead role or major supporting/speaking role MCU projects that have been released or are scheduled for release:

    Zoe Saldana – Gamora
    Letitia Wright – Shuri
    Danai Gurira – Okoye
    Zendaya – MJ
    Tessa Thompson – Valkyrie
    Pom Klementieff – Mantis
    Hannah John-Kamen – Ghost
    Gemma Chan – Minn-Erva/Sersi
    Teyonah Parris – Monica Rambeau
    Lashana Lynch – Maria Rambeau
    Salma Hayek – Ajak
    Lupita Nyong’o – Nakia
    Angela Bassett – Ramonda
    Lauren Ridloff – Makkari
    Awkwafina – Katy
    Fala Chen – Leiko Wu
    Michelle Yeoh – Aleta
    Iman Vellani – Kamala Khan

    By my count, that’s 18 women of color playing important characters in the MCU.
    As a counterpoint, here’s the same list for actresses that could be considered “white”:

    Scarlett Johansson – Black Widow
    Cobie Smulders – Maria Hill
    Natalie Portman – Jane Foster
    Brie Larson – Captain Marvel
    Elizabeth Olsen – Scarlet Witch
    Marissa Tomei – May Parker
    Tatiana Maslany – She-Hulk
    Angelina Jolie – Thena
    Rachel McAdams – Christine Palmer
    Tilda Swinton – The Ancient One
    Karen Gillan – Nebula
    Cate Blanchett – Hela
    Evangeline Lily – Wasp
    Michelle Pfeiffer – Janet Van Dyne
    Hayley Atwell – Peggy Carter
    Emily VanCamp – Sharon Carter
    Renee Russo – Freya

    … And that’s 17 women. Even if I’m missing one or two, the sections are about even. I’d say Marvel Studios is doing fairly well as far as representation goes.

    As much as I’d like to see more of Zazie as Domino, if Disney decides not to move forward with her, it’s certainly not going to be “eliminating one of the few women of color”.
