Ryan Reynolds has fun trolling Brad Pitt with an old set photo from Deadpool 2, the movie where Pitt has a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo as Vanisher.
Ryan Reynolds trolls Brad Pitt with a cheeky behind the scenes photo from Deadpool 2 referencing Pitt’s cameo as Vanisher. Reynolds first played the foul-mouthed Wade Wilson in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but fans would likely be forgiven if they didn’t remember that, seeing as Deadpool’s first onscreen appearance didn’t do him justice. Luckily, Reynolds got his second shot at bringing Wade to the big screen with 2016’s Deadpool, a raunchy fourth wall-breaking film that quickly became a huge hit with audiences. Two years later, Reynolds returned for the sequel Deadpool 2, which was just as well-received as the first.

Fans might remember that Deadpool 2 featured some pretty amazing cameos, including a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it one from Pitt. Pitt played Vanisher, a new member of Wade’s X-Force team who is entirely invisible. That means when he’s first introduced onscreen, the audience doesn’t see him at all. It isn’t clear exactly who Vanisher is until the moment he (spoiler alert) dies by colliding into power lines. As he’s electrocuted, his face flickers into existence quick enough for fans to realize it’s in fact Pitt.
