‘Deadpool 2’ Concept Art Shows Brad Pitt & Viggo Mortensen As Cable

Concept art from Deadpool 2 reveals Brad Pitt and Viggo Mortensen as Cable in the Merc With the Mouth’s second outing.

Although the future for Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool isn’t clear, Deadpool 2 was a fun ride for the Merc With the Mouth that brought in some classic X-Men characters for the anti-hero to play with. One of the core characters was fan-favorite mutant Cable, played by Josh Brolin. Now, Deadpool 2 concept artist Andrew Domachowski has revealed images imagining Brad Pitt or Viggo Mortensen in the role. If the concept art is to be believed, it seems like Fox was eyeing up the two actors to star opposite Reynolds in Deadpool 2.

The first image shows Brad Pitt’s Cable as if he’s just travelled back in time, revealing his full cybernetic arm and chest. The robotic side of Cable seems to go further than we saw in Deadpool 2, with metal poking out from underneath his entire chest. It also sees Brad Pitt with Cable’s undercut hairstyle and facial scars. The second image pictures Viggo Mortensen’s Cable as the heavily armed warrior fans know him to be. Viggo Mortensen is designed with the same cybernetic arm, but is also wearing bulky armor and wielding an impressive weapon. Take a look at the concept art of Brad Pitt and Viggo Mortensen as Cable in Deadpool 2 below.

Ryan Reynolds has confirmed that he is working on a Deadpool sequel with Marvel Studios. However, there has been no official word on where the third Deadpool film might fit into Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 or 5 line-ups. In the meantime, fans can re-watch Reynolds’ most recent appearance as the Merc with a Mouth in Deadpool 2.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Directed by David Leitch from a script written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.

Deadpool 2 is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
