MTV: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Brad Pitt is one of the most sought-after and acclaimed actors of his generation, with fans regularly enlisting his talents when speculation begins for an iconic role. After years of hoping to see him join an iconic franchise, fans saw him (sort of) in last year’s Deadpool 2, portraying the “Vanisher,” named for his abilities to become invisible. Pitt only appeared momentarily, depicting Vanisher’s death scene where he became visible, leading fans to wonder if this cameo made him more interested in future superhero roles. Unfortunately for fans, the actor admitted that the appearance satisfied his curiosities when it came to the world of superhero cinema.

“I think I’ve taken it as far as I can take it,” Pitt revealed to MTV News about the role. “Ryan Reynolds came up with a part that I could fill.”
