X-Men's Colossus to have major role in Deadpool

While Deadpool has long been affiliated with the X-Men universe, only one familiar mutant has been confirmed to appear in Tim Miller's new movie - Piotr Rasputin, aka Colossus. However, according to Deadpool creator, Rob Liefield he isn’t just there to make up numbers…

"You are going to love Colossus," said Liefeld at Amazing Hawaii Comic Con. "He’s in it – I hope Fox doesn’t get mad at me – he’s in it a good amount. He doesn’t just walk through the movie." This will be welcome news to Colossus fans, who have seen him make minor appearances in the X-Men franchise without really leaving his mark.

That said, original actor Daniel Cudmore will not be reprising his role, with the metal-skinned mutant now being played by actor/stuntman, Andre Tricoteux. He will join co-stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein and T.J. Miller when Deadpool hits our screens in the UK on February 5 2016 and the US on February 12 2016.
