Brad Pitt was once in line for Cable in Deadpool 2… and here’s how he would have looked

March 25th, 2017 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

With Michael Shannon being the frontrunner for the seemingly impossible to cast role of Cable, casting revelations have been released.

In an interesting ‘what-if?’ it has been revealed that not only was Brad Pitt eyed to play Cable in Deadpool 2, he was interested, but he has now moved on.

Pitt is notable for being choosy with his roles (relatively choosy, not so much as Warren Beatty, but still quite choosy) and he hasn’t had a proper franchise since his involvement in the Ocean’s series. And even more intriguingly, concept art has been released for Deadpool 2, with a very Brad-esque Cable.
