The movie starts production this summer. Deadpool played by Ryan Reynolds decides to eschew his solo style and assemble a bizarro crack team of superheroes—and one regular dude, played by Rob Delaney—to help him thwart his new enemy, Cable. Here's the deal: Deadpool assembles a squad he calls the X-Force to go and rescue wayward teen Russell Collins. Some of these moments are surprising. We're talking about the one and only.
It's virtually impossible to keep spoilers from leaking online, and that's doubly true for hotly anticipated superhero movies. After he parachutes out of the plane, strong winds carry him directly into some live power lines, and as he's fried to death we get a quick glimpse of Pitt's face. Brad, according to director David Leitch, was actually in the running to play Cable at one point. But in a later volume of the title that launched in 2008, he actually joined the team. The Brad Pitt cameo was actually very, very late in post process.
Ripley joke onto this deception. In Deadpool 2, we catch up with cancer-patient-turned-unkillable-reluctant-hero Wade Wilson, who's dealing with the death of his girlfriend Vanessa Morena Baccarin —which in Wade's case involves peeing on himself on a barstool and blowing himself up. But in a later volume of the title that launched in 2008, he actually joined the team. The most surprising happens to feature Brad Pitt, who, as it turns out, was willing to have a very brief cameo in Deadpool 2 because he thought it would make his kids laugh. Could Brad get his own Vanisher vehicle after this memorable cameo? Spoilers ahead, though they're really just of the fun, harmless variety.
When the time came to find someone to play Cable, the villainous role that ultimately went to Josh Brolin, Leitch turned first to his old friend. After though, is this truly the last we'll see of Pitt's Vanisher? Turns out: They are all right there, just ignoring this nonsense. A teleporter who's never really been more than a trumped-up thief, he tends to shoot for the stars when choosing what to steal. But Deadpool 2 has solved the mystery of where Professor X and the rest of the gang are. These superheroes are the cast of 2019's film, with reporting that Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg shot the cameo from the film's set. When all of sudden, there's a quick cutaway shot to see who he's bothering.
Update May 20 at 11:47 a. In fact, the only one that survives is 's Domino, whose curiously vague superpower is that she's very lucky. It was a real treat. Their ranks include Pennywise himself, a. I spotted Professor X , Beast , Quicksilver and Cyclops.
He parachutes straight into a power line and gets electrocuted. Deadpool has some pretty famous friends.

The antihero's second go-round makes a valiant effort at capturing the humor, action, R-rated gore, and all-around badassery of the first film.
Some of these moments are surprising. Is it coincidence that his demise is caused by a cable? He's sporting a mullet and drinking watered-down beer in an open field with his buddy. Almost every member of the X-Force is killed in some graphic way. Deadpool 2 contains several funny and surprising cameos and supporting appearances, but few might prove more shocking -- literally -- than Brad Pitt as X-Force's invisible member, the Vanisher. Ripley joke onto this deception. Are there plans for his own movie now? Does his body get cut in half? For example, in his first appearance he pilfered defense plans from the Pentagon and threatened to sell them to an enemy nation. Seriously, though, you need to pay attention or you'll miss him.
Pitt had to sneak onto the lot as to avoid anyone seeing him and starting rumors about what secret Fox project he was working on at the time. The X-Force team then gathers together to jump out of a plane. His Deadpool 2 cameo is a bit more static: Lee appears in a painting at the X-Mansion, and is also seen on a giant building mural. So the movie opens with a figurine of Wolverine's death scene from last year's Logan and closes with a moment in which new-Deadpool pays a visit to old-Deadpool and Origins-era Wolvie. And when Vanisher lands on and gets electrocuted by a telephone wire, he flickers onscreen for a second. His real name is Telford Porter…yes, Telly Porter.
