Are you a fan of both Marvel movies and Brad Pitt? If so, you might be wondering if the Hollywood heartthrob has ever appeared in any of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films. Let’s explore this question and find out if Pitt has ever suited up as a superhero.
Brad Pitt’s Relationship with Marvel
Pitt, like many other A-list actors, has been linked to various superhero roles over the years. However, he has never actually played a superhero in any Marvel movie. Despite this fact, Pitt does have an interesting relationship with the MCU.
Deadpool 2 Cameo
In 2018, Pitt made a surprise cameo appearance in Deadpool 2. Although not technically a Marvel movie (as it was produced by 20th Century Fox), Deadpool is part of the larger X-Men universe which is now owned by Disney following their acquisition of Fox. In the film, Pitt portrays a character called “Vanisher” who is only visible for a split second before being electrocuted and killed.
Producing Credit for ‘The Eternals’
While Brad Pitt may not have acted in any MCU movies, he was involved in the production of one upcoming film – The Eternals. The film, which is set to be released in November 2021, will be part of Phase Four of the MCU and follows a group of immortal beings as they battle against their evil counterparts known as The Deviants.
Pitt served as an executive producer on The Eternals, alongside Kevin Feige and other big names in Hollywood such as Chloe Zhao and Ryan Firpo.
The Future for Brad Pitt and Marvel
Despite his limited involvement with the MCU so far, there have been rumors that Brad Pitt may appear in future Marvel movies. One popular theory among fans is that he could portray the character Adam Warlock in an upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film.
Adam Warlock is a powerful, god-like being in the Marvel comics who has a deep connection to the Infinity Stones. With the Stones playing such a prominent role in the MCU’s Infinity Saga, it would make sense for Warlock to eventually appear on screen.
In summary, Brad Pitt has never played a superhero in any Marvel movie. However, he did have a small cameo in Deadpool 2 and served as an executive producer on The Eternals. It remains to be seen if he will ever don a cape and tights for a future Marvel project, but his fans will undoubtedly be eagerly waiting to see him in action alongside their favorite MCU heroes.
