SPOILER ALERT: Yes, that was Brad Pitt you saw in Deadpool 2
Well, it happened. I finally went out to see Deadpool 2. Yes, Ryan Reynolds was back this week in the red suit, meaner and worse than ever, oh and he kicked more buts here too. Yesterday was our Saturday night out so we went to the movies and afterwards to an event party and we had a blast.
But on the topic of Deadpool… Oh Wayde….. How I love you!.
Seriously, I loved the sequel but more than that I loved the cameos in Deadpool. 2 Did you noticed Professor X (James McAvoy), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), X-Men universe’s Quicksilver (Evan Peters) and Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) in the X-Mansion? I did…
Morena Baccarin’s Firefly co-star Alan Tudyk was at the beginning too, and let’s not forget the X-Force members. Or should I say X-Force deadbeats. Terry Crews as Bedlam, Lewis Tan as Shatterstar, Bill Skarsgård as Zeitgeist, Rob Delaney as Peter and Brad Pitt as Vanisher made the X-Force team, a group of mutants that is due to assemble in another movie (in the very near future). And in case you were wondering, that was Brad Pitt being (SPOILER) electrocuted in the ParaShoot landing scene.
Yes, Brad played the role of Vanisher for a brief period of Deadpool 2, and was in fact considered for the role of Cable. Scheduling conflicts prohibited him from taking on the role (Josh Brolin was cast instead) but managed to squeeze in a brief cameo. Brad filmed his Vanisher cameo in two hours during post-production.
How cool was that?
