For Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, portraying Domino's powers of inherent luck onscreen started as a challenge that became "the coolest opportunity ever."

"We’re excited to play with that idea in choreography. I’m not going to give you how it’s all going to play out," Leitch told ScreenRant. "As a choreographer, having a character with her abilities is really a trick. I think at first it seems like a problem. Like oh my god, how dod you demonstrate luck? And then you just see it like, oh, this is the coolest opportunity ever, so we’re really excited and we’re creating really great stuff for her character.”

Leitch's approach to other aspects of Domino's history - and Cable's - is to focus on the major aspects of their characters rather than try to squeeze everything in their history into a short movie.

"I think besides all of the Deadpool, sort of the film universe Deadpool, you kind of have to be selective of like how you approach these characters because there’s a canon of work that’s so massive that you could never put it all on screen," Leitch explained. "So we’ve been really particular what we’re going to put in and what we’re going to leave for potential future if it goes that way and, uh, I think you’ll like it. It’s all in the spirit of canon, and also in the spirit of like what Deadpool the movie is."

Deadpool 2 is due out in theaters June 1, 2018.
