LooOut of all the craziest things that we encountered in the Deadpool movie series, Brad Pitt’s cameo in the second installment is one of the quirkiest things ever seen in a movie. It was a surprising scene for the fans as they didn’t expect the Mr. and Mrs. Smith actor to make a cameo that doesn’t even last more than a few seconds. Brad Pitt who is currently busy promoting his latest release Bullet Train discussed how he got that role and what convinced him to nod yes to that minuscule sequence.
Brad Pitt’s cameo in Deadpool 2:
Brad Pitt is once again reuniting with his Deadpool 2 director David Leitch in his latest action-comedy project Bullet Train. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, he threw light on what convinced him to star in the R-rated Marvel movie.
The Fight Club actor played the role of Vanisher in Deadpool 2 who was primarily invisible for more than half of his screen time until he met his demise with the other X-Force members by getting electrocuted. Pitt described it as one of the easiest things done by him:
“What was shooting that like? Pretty much, the easiest thing I’ve ever done. Dave’s [David Leitch] an old friend of mine and he used to be… he was my stunt double starting with Fight Club and all the way up till about 2004. And then he went off and became a really good director, which is rare. Rare.”
“Ryan called and like, why not?”
It can be understood that the actor was mainly convinced by the director and the Wade Wilson actor Ryan Reynolds.
It is reported that even the writers didn’t have any initial plans for a cameo like that but later they couldn’t find a more innovative way for a celebrity cameo. And thus we got to watch one of the most eccentric cameos ever.
What do we know about Deadpool 3?
As per the upcoming installment in the Deadpool movie series, we are still to know any update on that. Even though it is already announced by Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige that the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney won’t affect the movie in any way as it will remain R-rated like its predecessors.
Recently it was posted on social media that Ryan Reynolds has resumed his training for Deadpool 3. It is going to be directed by Shawn Levy. But still, it is going to be a long wait to see how Marvel Studios’ first R-rated movie is going to fit into their storyline.
Deadpool 1 & 2 can be exclusively streamed on Disney+
