Colossus set for big things in the Deadpool movie…

September 21st, 2015 by Jonathan Snelling Comments


Deadpool and the X-Men have been affiliated with each other for a very long time. Wade Wilson even appeared in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but the less we talk about that the better.

Well, it’s good to know that this link has not been forgotten and that the metal man, Colossus, is going to have a major role in the film.

There is even a brief clip of him in the trailer.

During Amazing Hawaii Comic Con, creator of Deadpool Rob Leifield talked about Colossus’s appearance in the film: “You are going to love Colossus… he’s in it a good amount. He doesnt just walk through the movie.”

In the trailer we see him fighting Deadpool. It’s a small scene though and doesn’t have the epic battle feel that these two deserve.

Daniel Cudmore, the original actor of Colossus from the X-Men Franchise, will not be reprising his role. Actor and stuntman Andre Tricoteux will be the new Colossus.

Deadpool will be released on the fifth of February, 2016 in the UK and February 12th 2016 in the US.

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
