We already knew that Stefan Kapicic was returning as Colossus in the second ‘Deadpool‘ movie but now he’s shared that his character will be a major player in the upcoming movie. Outside of Ryan Reyolds we knew that Josh Brolin’s Cable and Zazie Beetz’s Domino are the three central characters to the film though Colossus will clearly factor in as well.
The interview came after the Spanish trailer for the film dropped which showed Deadpool getting a bit frisky with our metallic mutant and Kapicic shares that “I was surprised they put that in the trailer. That’s the relationship between Deadpool and Colossus. Colossus is trying to make him a better person, to stop being childish. Stop doing crazy things. This scene we see in the trailer, that’s the picture of their relationship.”
While Colossus has been trying to be a positive influence on the Merc with the Mouth you know that he hasn’t been all that successful. The two aren’t exactly seeing eye to eye in how to go forward and that isn’t just because Kapicic’s character towers over him either:
“Deadpool is hard to change. Colossus is an old-school superhero. He’s trying to make [Deadpool] a better man, an X-Man. But the thing is, Deadpool is doing his own thing.”
As to that scene which looks to be teasing X-Force, you know, this one:
Kapicic clarified that:
“That’s not CGI of Terry Crews, that is Terry Crews. You can see it clearly. You can see behind him, Shatterstar, a really cool thing for people to geek out.”
I’ll admit, I geeked out and am continuing to do so with this confirmation! We still aren’t sure who Crews is playing in the movie though both Hammer and G.W. Bridge are the frontrunners here. Bishop could fit into the mix as well though has previously been cast and isn’t usually someone you would consider to be part of the inception of X-Force.
Finally, of his character he does share that:
“Colossus is one of the most important characters, besides Deadpool and Cable, and you will see why Colossus is important for this story. People who love Colossus are going to be crazy. All these new characters, so many surprises in this trailer. This is just the beginning.”
I’ve always been a fan of the character, and this is the first iteration that they’ve done in one of the movies that have had him feeling right. I’m hoping this means he’ll be part of ‘Deadpool 3’ and ‘X-Force’ assuming both films happen with Disney owning the franchises.
