RUMOR: ‘Deadpool 2’ Could Add Kyle Chandler as Cable and Mackenzie Davis as Domino

Aug 14, 2016


Meet The Movie Press dropped a casting rumor on the show when Jeff revealed that Fox and Tim Miller had been looking Kyle Chandler (Wolf of Wall Street, Zero Dark Thirty, Argo, Carol, King Kong) for the role of Cable and Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire, Blade Runner 2, The Martian) for the female lead of Domino.

The two would of be the new secondary leads of the sequel, and will likely be apart of ye to be written X-Force movie. Like Ryan, Mackenzie is a Canadian actor who grew up in Vancouver.

While Umberto from The Wrap pointed-out, that Chandler isn’t a name Fox is entirely hot on and was originally considered for the role by director Tim Miller. They want a star in the role and we’ve previously heard the Cable role is going to be as big as Wolverine and could expand to a solo franchise.


Apparently, Fox is more interested in Liam Neeson for the role and I’ve also heard this name from others over the last couple of months, since he’s known to put asses in seats.

There’s also talk of time-travelling Cable potentially being apart of Josh Boone’s New Mutants.


Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises, Bloodline, Rogue One) hasn’t been brought-up, but considering his working relationship with both Ryan and Kyle in previous films, I’d expect him to be considered for a villain role like Mister Sinister. Ben also almost worked with Davis when the actress had been in the running for the Jyn Erso role in Rogue One.

Deadpool 2 could easily be looking to cast their new leads now before pre-production and costume fittings happen. It’s been said by producer Simon Kinberg they’re looking to shoot Deadpool 2 early next year, which gives us the impression a 2018 release date is likely going to be announced soon.
