Only hours after reporting that Michael Shannon would be playing Cable in Deadpool 2, leaked Deadpool 2 concept art has us reeling with the realisation that, in fact, it would seem Brad Pitt is the front runner to play the iconic X-Men antihero. The concept art for the upcoming Deadpool 2 was leaked on Reddit earlier today and amongst the huge Cable reveal, we also get a look at Domino, Colossus, and Deadpool in a Deadpool t-shirt.
With the first Deadpool movie making such an impact after leaked test footage forced studio bosses to green light the production, this may be a similar attempt to get the ball rolling on a production that seems to have been mired with set back after set back. It could also be a way of “bullying” Pitt, who is set to star in the Netflix original War Machine, into signing onto the cast. Whatever the reasoning, as a fan I am loving what I am seeing and I can wait to see more.
