Colossus to appear in Deadpool; Gina Carano joins the cast as Angel Dust

02.13.2015

On top of the cool news that Ryan Reynolds will not be the only Marvel superhero in DEADPOOL, we also have confirmation on a new leading lady in the film. The Hollywood Reporter cites sources claiming that X-MEN character Colossus will play a role in DEADPOOL. The extent of his involvement is unknown and it could even be a cameo, but it is nice to know that Fox is treating this movie as a member of their cinematic universe and not a one-off standalone.

In other DEADPOOL news, Gina Carano has joined the cast as Angel Dust. In the comics, Angel Dust is a member of the Morlocks and has the mutant abilities of superhuman strength, speed, agility, and more for a short time. When her powers kick in, dark lines appear on her face. I would venture to guess that Carano's role will be substantial but there is no indication that she is the female lead that several actresses have been testing for.

After years of silence it is exciting to see how quickly DEADPOOL is now coming together. With Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller passionate about the source material, I am optimistic this will be as good as we all hope it can be.

DEADPOOL hits theaters on February 12, 2016.

Darn, I was thinking how great she would be as Domino.

Can we actually get a Russian body builder. The one issue i have with the xmen films is the are loosely based on the source material. There are a lot of story opportunities they missed over the course of seven films.

So now we know.

Deadpool is obviously being set in present day. My guess is that the proposed X-Men TV show will be set in the eighties. My guess is that they will follow up Deadpool with an X-Force movie in which case we can expect Cable to appear in the end credits scene.

Fuck.

Why does there need to be some kind of love interest in this movie? It should just be a day in the life of Deadpool. Start with him waking up, making 2,000 pancakes, getting a call from the movie producers about some action scenes coming up, killing some people and assassinating xmen and mutants on his hit list while screaming Chimechanga!

What is this crap with this horrible actress being some leader of underground mutants, I thought that was Marrow.

I still love someone here's suggestion.....

That the movie should start with Deadpool watching Wolverines Origin, then saying something to the camera about it....

This is excellent news. Carano isn't a great actress, but she's adequate and she'll really be able to nail the physical scenes. She's attractive as well, so that's a bonus.

Glad to to read that this film will be apart of the cinematic universe and not just a standalone. Who knows, maybe Wolverine could pop up in a Deadpool film or vice versa with Wolverine 3.

Sounds good to me! Colossus was definitely one of the characters that got short handed in the X-Men films.

So what time period does this film take place. Reynolds was Deadpool in Origins - and that was set in 80s wasn't? (Same period as Apocalypse is going to be?)

Not sure how it'll make sense but I hope they keep Cudmore

You do know Colossus will show up as a teenager again and probably just get killed off by Deadpool. That is one of the best things about his comic, everyone dies a million times.

Yes! Colossus has gotten so shafted in the X films so far! Give my favorite xman something to do besides die or get blown off by Wolverine!

Good to see Carano getting some superhero movie action. I still think she should have been Wonder Woman.

дерьмо , да!! That is Russian for Shit Yeah! Colossus always needs more screen time which has always been my biggest problem with all the X-Men films, way too much time with Wolverine (whom I do enjoy tremendously) but never enough time with the solid metal Russian bad ass known as Colossus. I hope Angel Dust isn't required to speak much because Carano is fine to look at and she could kick your ass, but man she can't act.

Same. I hope Cudmore reprises his role. Gina will be a nice addition as well.
Also, SO looking forward to what they do with Deadpool. Hell, I am looking forward to my Sideshowtoys Sixth Scale figure. Shit needs to get released ASAP

That's great news. Colossus never got any good screen time, in my opinion. I hope he's still played by Cudmore.
