Ryan Reynolds had shared with Entertainment Tonight at the time that Pitt was convinced for the cameo in exchange for a cup of coffee from him. He said,

“I was told all he wanted is a cup of coffee and I said, ‘Like a franchise or just one individual cup of coffee?’ And I was told one individual cup of coffee, which was really his way of saying, ‘I’m doing it for nothing.’ And 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 the exception of three frames of film?” Reynolds joked. “Yeah, that’s kind of amazing.”

Deadpool 2’s writer Paul Wernick had shared with The Hollywood Reporter that Vanisher was never supposed to appear in the flesh but the fact that he was going to get wrapped up in wires is what inspired them to feature a celebrity cameo.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s fans have been waiting for the actor to portray a superhero on-screen despite it being reported that the actor had turned down a couple of Comic Book Movies, including Batman Forever, Spider-Man, and Joker, because he didn’t feel interested enough or ready to put on a suit.
