Deadpool 2 introduced X-Force, but not quite in the way fans expected. The team was used solely for comedic effect, with each member killed in suitably gory ways before Wade Wilson headed into battle alongside Cable and Domino.
Among those who signed up for the Merc with the Mouth's team was Vanisher, an invisible character we learned was being played by Brad Pitt after the mutant got caught up in some electrical lines. The Bullet Train star was only on screen for a few seconds, but it remains one of the Deadpool sequel's most memorable moments.
Talking to Ali Plumb to promote his latest movie, Pitt was asked to explain why he agreed to join the Marvel Universe in such an unconventional fashion as well as what the experience was like.
"What was shooting that like? Pretty much, easiest thing I’ve ever done," he admitted. "[David Leitch is] 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."
Pitt added, "Ryan called and like, 'Why not?'"
It's hard to say whether the actor has any interest in joining the MCU or DCEU (it might be better giving the latter a miss for the time being based on recent events), but we'd love to see it happen. As for this cameo, it was undeniably hilarious and the sort of thing only the Deadpool franchise could get away with.
Earlier this week, we actually rounded up some of Bullet Train's biggest cameos over at ActioNewz.com. It too featured some surprise A-List talent, and you can find out who showed up by clicking here. We also have a breakdown of the post-credits scene here.
