It has been two years since Deadpool 2 hit the big screen, but it’s only now that Ryan Reynolds makes fun of Brad Pitt’s cameo.
The film has occasionally been giving some trivia about the franchise. Now, its lead star, Ryan Reynolds, revealed a behind-the-scenes clip, where he seemed to mock Brad Pitt.
Reynolds making fun of Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie’s former husband had a brief cameo in the movie as Vanisher, a mutant supervillain.
In a post on his Instagram stories, the 43-year-old actor shared a cropped photo of himself and Jennifer Aniston’s ex. In true Reynolds’ style, he joked about it and said it was a snap of himself and the “bit players” of the film.
It wasn’t the first time that The Proposal star made fun of Pitt. He once said that the 56-year-old actor “electrocuted himself” because Oscars didn’t just grow on trees.

🚨Ryan Reynolds Trolls Brad Pitt with New Deadpool 2 Set Image of Vanisher🚨 – Reynolds (who could honestly make a second career out of being a professional troll) poked fun at Pitt's quick cameo in a post to his Instagram story. Reynolds shared a picture of him and Pitt together with the caption, "Worked with a lot of great bit players. This guy played 'Vanisher'." The catch? Only half of Pitt's face is actually visible. You can see the hilarious image above. As mentioned before, Reynolds is no stranger to poking fun at other celebrities. In fact, it's probably one of the reasons he makes such a good Deadpool, since his wise-cracking personality fits right in with Wade's characterization. Most recently, Reynolds got some good laughs out of fans by crashing the virtual X-Men reunion that featured Patrick Stewart and Reynolds' "enemy" Hugh Jackman. Odds are, fans hope Reynolds will never stop with his jokes and harmless trolling behavior. Right now, fans are impatiently waiting for a new update on the state of Deadpool 3. Since Disney has purchased Fox, it seems like any new Deadpool movie will be set within the MCU, which is a decidedly family-friendly territory. However, there's still hope that Deadpool will remain an R-rated property, and back in December, Reynolds revealed Deadpool 3 is in development at Marvel Studios. Since then, though, there hasn't been much news, and Deadpool's creator Rob Liefeld cast some doubt on the film's progress. Of course, that doesn't mean things have fully ground to a halt; based on the success of Deadpool 2, it would be silly of Marvel to leave the character behind. Hopefully a new update will arrive soon.
Why did Brad Pitt do Deadpool 2?
So, why did Pitt do Deadpool 2 even if it’s only for a small scene? According to Comicbook, it’s because the film producer wanted to have a cup of coffee with Reynolds.
“I was told all he wants is a cup of coffee, and I said, ‘Like a franchise or just one individual cup of coffee?'” Blake Lively’s husband revealed. “And I was told one individual cup of coffee, which was really his way of saying, ‘I’m doing it for nothing.'”
As Pitt only wanted a coffee as an exchange for his appearance, the father-of-two believed it was “a total solid and the nicest thing anyone could do.”
“I just loved it, because what’s more irresponsible than taking one of the biggest movie stars in the world and giving him a role that is utterly wordless and invisible with an exception of three frames of film?” Reynolds continued. “Yeah, that’s kind of amazing.”
Although Vanisher died morbidly in Deadpool 2, Pitt’s appearance was one of the movie’s most surprising elements.
Brad Pitt to work with Deadpool 2 director again
Meanwhile, Pitt will be working with the Deadpool 2 director, David Leitch, once again. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star will be leading the cast of the action-thriller film Bullet Train.
Leitch will helm the movie, based on Kotaro Isaka’s Japanese novel Maria Beetle, Digital Spy noted. It is about the Japanese criminal underworld members who are on board the same bullet train with conflicting orders.
