Brad Pitt is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood. Forget all his personal relations with Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie or other women – because today, it’s all about his professional life. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Troy remain Brad’s notable works amongst others. But have you heard the rumours around his link with MCU? Below is the scoop you need.
Brad has proved his versatility as an actor over the years. Be it his work in Fight Club, Troy or for that matter, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, he’s done it all. However, one thing that his fans have been wanting to witness him in, is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Reports state that he was supposed to play Thor, which is Chris Hemsworth’s role in Avengers.
Yes, you heard that right. Several reports suggest that Brad Pitt was supposed to play Thor. However, there remains no proof of the same. The rumours stem from his character from Troy. Brad plays Achilles, a Greek man. From his blonde locks to the shields and swords, fans felt all he needed is a hammer.
The actor’s charming looks have attracted women time and again. However, as far as the casting directors are concerned, there’s way more needed than just looks. In fact, some handsome Hollywood hunks like Alexander Skarsgard, Charlie Hunnam, and Tom Hiddleston had previously auditioned for Thor. But who made the cut? Chris Hemsworth.
So as far as Brad Pitt being considered for the MCU character goes, the reports are false. Nothing of those sorts actually happened. But there indeed remain chances that the Fury actor may join the MCU in the future.
If the gossip mill is to be believed, Brad is being considered for Marvel’s Hyperion (parody of Superman). He may also be casted for Doctor Doom or Annihilus.
