DEADPOOL 2 Director David Leitch Reveals Why Brad Pitt Isn't Playing Cable And Michael Shannon's Involvement

The reason why Brad Pitt won't be taking on the role of Cable in Deadpool 2 has finally been revealed, while director David Leitch shares his thoughts on rumoured frontrunner Michael Shannon...

Deadpool 2 finally seems to be coming together, but the highly anticipated sequel has yet to find an actor to play Cable. Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) is the rumoured frontrunner, while some leaked concept art showed Brad Pitt as the character, something we later learned was based specifically on the actor because he had screen tested alongside Ryan Reynolds.

However, when ComicBook.com caught up with Deadpool 2 director David Leitch at CinemaCon, the filmmaker shed some light on why Pitt won't be starring in his first superhero movie. "We had a great meeting with Brad, he was incredibly interested in the property. Things didn't work out schedule-wise. He's a fan, and we love him, and I think he would've made an amazing Cable."
 
What could have been, eh? JoBlo.com also managed to catch Leitch for a few moments to ask if Shannon really is going to suit up as the fan-favourite mutant and got a somewhat positive update.
 
"You know, I think, Michael Shannon, that name speaks for itself, he’s an incredible actor and he can accomplish anything. Yeah, I’m passionate about him as an actor and, look, he would make an incredible Cable. If that happens, I would be through the roof that I get to work with another incredible actor. I can’t say that it’s going to happen, because we’re looking – the list is what the list is. But, yeah, I have nothing but great things to say about him and I’m a huge, huge fan."
