There are rumours out there hovering in the skies of MCU claiming that Brad Pitt is going to play MCU’s Superman in Captain Marvel 2, and we are not surprised. Marvel is eyeing on casting the Academy award-winning actor in MCU for a while now, and with the introduction of MCU’s Phase 4 and many new storylines in MCU, the possibility of Brad Pitt playing MCU’s Superman is sky-high.
Brad Pitt to play MCU’s Superman in Captain Marvel 2?
Yes, you heard it right. Several sources close to Marvel has leaked the news that Marvel has approached the actor for a major role in upcoming MCU movie. We already know that Marvel has been trying to cast Brad Pitt in a role from a long time. The last time this rumour broke out, we heard that Marvel was planning on casting Pitt for a major villainous role, most possibly Kang or Galactus, to fill the Thanos sized hole in MCU.
But the recent developments suggest that Kevin Feige probably had a change of mind, and now they are planning on casting Brad Pitt to play MCU’s Superman in Captain Marvel 2.
Who’s MCU’s Superman?
Most of you don’t know Marvel comics enough to be aware that the Marvel has its very own deliberate pastiche of DC’s Superman, and he’s called Hyperion. Yes, Hyperion is a Marvel superhero who finely resembles Superman. Though the origin of Hyperion had been swapped several times, he’s originally an Eternal.
Hyperion is a leader of Squadron Supreme, a team of superheroes in Marvel that again resembles DC’s Justice League with each member of it resembling the ones from Justice League. Hyperion has been a very important and strong character in Marvel comics. He has been involved in various major superhero groups of Marvel and has been leading a couple.
Possibilities of Marvel bringing Hyperion in MCU?
Earlier in 2019, we heard the rumours that Marvel is eyeing on adding a Hyperion movie to its MCU line-up. Till now there is no development in that field. We have seen it several times in MCU that Marvel likes to introduce its characters with a Cameo role in the movies of other established characters before it gives them their solo movie. So, this might be just another time when Marvel is planning on something similar.
Marvel currently has a couple of movies in production and a handful of Disney+ shows. One of those movies in Captain Marvel 2. As we have predicted that Captain Marvel 2 will take place straight after first Captain marvel, and we know Hyperion belongs to the same timeline, thus, Marvel may be introducing Hyperion in MCU with Captain Marvel 2.
With MCU and DCEU going head to head with their cinematic universe, and DC having only Justice League able enough to take arms against MCU’s Avengers, Marvel might be planning on bringing its version of Justice League in MCU. It would be fun to see if Marvel brings Hyperion and Squadron Supreme in its cinematic universe before Justice league 2 by DC.
Why Brad Pitt as Hyperion in MCU?
We know the studio’s desperation to cast Brad Pitt. When previously it failed to cast the actor for a major role, they brought him for a cameo role in Deadpool 2. Remember? The Vanquisher from the X-force in Deadpool 2, who only became visible for a split second while dying from the electric shock after the crash landing on electric cables.
Yes, we saw Brad Pitt playing Vanquisher for that split second. Since then there are various rumours of Marvel casting him for a major role in MCU’s Phase 4. If the recent updates to be believed, Brad Pitt will be playing MCU’s Superman in Captain Marvel 2.
