Daniel Cudmore Will Not Return as Colossus in ‘Deadpool’

Feb 17, 2015


Back in 2010 the first draft of Deadpool leaked online which featured a very different Colossus appearing alongside the Merc with a Mouth. Daniel Cudmore who played the character in all the past X-Men films most recently Day sof Future Past expressed interest in reprising the role of the character in the greenlight Deadpool spin-off but it looks like that will not be happening. The actor took to Twitter to reveal he will not be returning to the character alongside Ryan Reynolds:


There have been discussions that they may simply recast Colossus and give him his Russian origins as seen in the comics. Others have pointed out that they may just cut the character out altogether and go with fan-favorite Cable which would directly into an X-Force film.
