Brad Pitt Is No Longer in the Running for Cable in DEADPOOL 2
If you were hoping that Brad Pitt would end up playing Cable in Deadpool 2, I've got some bad news for you. According to director David Leitch, Pitt is no longer in the running. The news that he was being considered first broke about a week ago, and that was followed by some awesome-looking concept art that was created for the film. I was asked to remove that art from the site, so you can't see it here anymore.
I actually really liked the look of Pitt as Cable, and I love the design they've come up with are for the character. When talking about Pitt being up for the role Leitch said:
"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."
Kinda sucks that his scheduling didn't work out. It's cool to hear that he was interested in doing it, though. I guess that leave us with Michael Shannon. There's no official word on who will play Cable in the film yet, but we know that the announcement is coming soon. The last we heard Shannon is at the top of the studio's list, and if he's cast in the role I think he'd be great!
