Could Brad Pitt be Cable in DEADPOOL 2?!
That’s right, you read the title of this article. Deadpool 2 is happening, and if this is your first time hearing that, where have you been? Better yet, why did you click this article? I forgive you, let’s move on to the news of the moment. It appears like the latest rumor on Scott Summers’ and Jean Grey’s son (we all know that Cable is their son Nathan, right?) is pointing a finger right at Brad Pitt. Yeah, the Academy Award nominated actor who starred in Cool World. Editor-in-Chief of Tracking Board, Jeff Sneider, tweeted an article and added this comment:
“Will be interesting to see if Brad Pitt plays Cable,” he wrote. “In meantime, sounds like Sony is working on a Spider-Man sequel.”

Whoa! No one was even considering Pitt when they’d pictured who might be the perfect silver haired time-traveler for the role. Pitt’s comedic chops are just as solid as his dramatic ones, so this wouldn’t be that tough to imagine. And, Brad Pitt is one of the best character actors of our generation (what’s up millennial nation!) and now that his name has been tossed into the Deadpool 2 gumbo, it’s smelling sweeter.
The announcement has to be right around the corner, and let’s just see if this rumor turns out to be true. For a little history on the character, feast your eyes on this video:
