Recently, we’ve been getting information that pointed to a couple of names supposedly in talks to play Cable in Deadpool 2. Michael Shannon was reported as the front-runner but a later report gave this spot to Brad Pitt (which was later seemingly backed up by concept art). Despite this, David Leitch told Comicbook.com recently that Pitt is not in the running any longer.
“We had a great meeting with Brad, he was incredibly interested in the property. Things didn’t work out schedule-wise. He’s a fan, and we love him, and I think he would’ve made an amazing Cable.”
Though many received the concept art very well, we will not be seeing Pitt’s take on the time-traveling mutant. As it has not been confirmed otherwise, it would seem that Shannon remains the top pick for the role. As we await further confirmation, be sure to stay tuned for updates on all things Deadpool 2!
What do you guys think? Were you looking forward to seeing Brad Pitt as Cable? Are you hoping the final decision is Michael Shannon? Let us know in the comments as well as on our Twitter and Instagram!
