Zazie Beetz was fantastic as Domino in Deadpool 2. She’s perfect for that role, yet there might be another role she thinks she’d be even better suited to, and that role is Storm.
The actress, who recently appeared in the box office hit of 2019, Joker, revealed during a recent interview with Screen Geek that she would love to play Storm one day in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Here’s what she said when she was asked whether she’d be interested in the role should the opportunity show itself:
Yeah, I think I would be down. I guess obviously it depends on the script and it depends on if I think it’s a good script. I think it would be super fun to do that. Storm is essentially such an iconic character. I mean it would be kind of big shoes to fill, I think. I wouldn’t want to confuse audiences too much and be all over the place, and now I’m doing DC as well. I think it would be super fun. I think it would be a dope opportunity.
Of course, we know that the Fox X-Men movies are now officially over, and Marvel Studios is going to be finding a way to reboot the franchise, so they will be looking to recast Storm in the near future.
However, there’s one hiccup in Beetz’s plan. She’s already playing Domino in the Deadpool movies, and Disney and Marvel are planning to continue making those movies.
Zazie Beetz is eyeing up that Storm role in the MCU
It also sounds as if Domino will be in the next Deadpool films. However, that hasn’t been a problem in the past.
Look as Josh Brolin who was cast both as Thanos in Avengers: Endgame and as a Cable in Deadpool 2, and those movies came out in the same year.
Maybe there is some wiggle room to have Beetz play both Domino and Storm in the MCU.
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens on that front.
