Warning: There are spoilers ahead for "Deadpool 2."
In " Deadpool 2 ," Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) gathers together his own ragtag group of heroes to save a fellow mutant.
The X-Force, as Deadpool names them, consists of Domino (Zazie Beetz), Bedlam (Terry Crews), Shatterstar (Lewis Tan), Zeitgeist (Bill Skarsgard), and a regular guy named Peter (Rob Delaney).
But that's not it. There's supposedly a guy named Vanisher who also made the team.
The problem? Vanisher's invisible. He conveniently doesn't seem to be big on speaking either.
Naturally, it seems like Deadpool is pulling the audience's leg when he reveals a photo of the guy to be nothing more than a blank headshot. Surely, this will be the end of this gag.
The X-Force team then gathers together to jump out of a plane. It's a scene that's been teased in most of the film's trailers.
As the team skydives, keep an eye on the sky. You'll peer a tiny parachute floating down to Earth by itself.
It's a pretty funny sight.
I'll admit I was chuckling to myself to see the lengths Deadpool was going through to keep up with this gag. But then the cord on the parachute was pulled.
As each of the X-Force members quickly met terrible fates (it was a bit windy out), our attention is turned to the seemingly empty parachute.
In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it-moment, the chute flies into a wire, electrocuting the Vanisher and bringing him momentarily into focus.
Not only is he very real, but the Vanisher is none other than Brad Pitt.
Yes. That Brad Pitt.
If you weren't sure if it was actually Pitt, the credits confirm it's indeed the "World War Z" actor.
We've seen the Vanisher before
Vanisher was actually a character briefly seen in "X-Men: The Last Stand."
In the comics, the character was actually an X-Force villain and thief.
Why it's interesting to see Pitt in "Deadpool 2"
Pitt was actually in talks to play the movie's antihero, Cable, played by Josh Brolin.
In March 2017, concept art of Pitt as the character appeared online which matches with the final look of the character. "Deadpool 2" director David Leitch confirmed to ComicBook.com that they had met with Pitt for the movie, but it ultimately didn't work out.
"He was incredibly interested in the property," said Leitch. "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."
While Pitt's schedule may have conflicted, it looks like they were able to find just enough time to squeeze in a small cameo.
According to "Deadpool 2" screenwriter Rhett Reese, Ryan Reynolds reached out to Pitt.
"Brad's kids loved the first movie, and so he jumped at the chance. He did it for scale, and a cup of coffee," Reese told Fandango . "[Pitt] insisted Ryan deliver [the coffee] to him on set, which happened. It was a real treat."
When you think about it, Pitt has never played a superhero. Yes, he did play a character in animated movie, "Megamind," but he has never starred as a Marvel or DC superhero or villain.
A representative for Pitt and Fox didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment. Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: What Trump University was really like — according to a former professor
