In just a few short months, 20th Century Fox will release the long-awaited Deadpool, which star Ryan Reynolds had been trying to get off the ground for several years. The buzz swirling around this superhero movie is already quite high, after the first trailer debuted at San Diego Comic Con this summer. While it isn't known when we'll see the next footage from this comic book adaptation, Ryan Reynolds sent out a new photo on his verified Twitter account, showing the actor in his full Deadpool costume, trick-or-treating with a group of young X-Men mutants on Halloween. Here's what the actor had to say on his Twitter page yesterday.
"Dear Fox, stop changing the timelines. It's confusing the audience. #xmenassemble #happyhalloween."
Things still aren't clear regarding how Tim Miller's "Deadpool" film adaptation will fit into the larger "X-Men" screen universe, though one element within the film that's definitely crossing over is the character of Colossus.
"I think you're going to get to see more of who Colossus is. I think people will get a better sense of who he is. But I think there's still a lot more to be told about him. Colossus had been around in the comics since the '70s, so I mean, I think you could do your own movie on him."
Asked if he'll have the character's classic accent in the film, he offers:
"I can't give too much away. We kept »

According to actor Andre Tricoteux, people will get a better sense of the true character in the film compared to his appearances in previous big-screen X-Men offerings.
Speaking to Tech Times, Tricoteux said: "I think you're going to get to see more of who Colossus is. Like I said, we kept him really traditional to the comic book. So yes, I think people will get a better sense of who he is.

Colossus is set to make his return to the big screen this February as part of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men spinoff Deadpool, with actor and stuntman Andre Tricoteux taking on the role of Piotr Rasputin from Daniel Cudmore. Speaking to Tech Times, Tricoteux has revealed that his interpretation will follow closely from the comic book source material, as well as delving deeper into the character.

“The Colossus you’re going to see in Deadpool is very true to the original character in the comic book. [Director] Tim Miller had a really clear vision, and the Deadpool people had a really clear vision of what they wanted. They wanted Colossus to be very traditional to the original story. I think you’re going to get to see more of who Colossus is. Like I said, we kept him really traditional to the comic book. »

The X-Man known as Colossus has already appeared several times in the X-men film franchise, but those appearances never amounted to much more than a visual effects driven cameo. Not only will Colossus have more of a presence in the upcoming Deadpool, but Andre Tricotuex, who has taken over the role from Daniel Cudmore, told Tech Times that the character will be staying very true to the...

Ever since the first Deadpool trailer debuted at Comic Con this summer, the anticipation has grown at an incredible rate for this superhero adventure, set to hit theaters February 12, 2016. Aside from the Merc With the Mouth, fans will also be introduced to colorful characters such as Ajax (Ed Skrein, Angel Dust (Gina Carano), Weasel (T.J. Miller) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). One of the most intriguing characters, though, is Colossus, with Andre Tricoteux replacing Daniel Cudmore, who portrayed him in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. During an interview with Tech Times, Andre Tricoteux revealed that this version of Colossus will be truer to the original comic books than the X-Men movies.
Despite portraying the character across numerous installments in Fox’s X-Men series, Daniel Cudmore opted to forego a role in the studio’s R-rated rendition of Deadpool as Piotr “Peter” Nikolaievitch Rasputin.
Many fans were taken aback by the casting changeover, though it wasn’t long before Fox instated Russian actor Andre Tricoteux took his place as the steely mutant, and the newcomer recently divulged some juicy details regarding the role in an interview with Tech Times.

Though many believed the Colossus we see in Deadpool will act as a departure from the character’s comic book origins, Tricoteux stated that what we see on the silver screen in 2016 will be “very true to the original character,” while also praising Tim Miller’s vision for the movie.

The Russian mutant known as Colossus, or Piotr Rasputin, has been portrayed by Daniel Cudmore in three X-Men movies over the course of twelve years, but the character will be played by someone new when he mutates into his metallic form next year in Deadpool. While promoting his recurring role on iZombie, Russian actor and stunt performer Andre Tricoteux talked for the first time about portraying Colossus opposite Ryan Reynolds, how his version of the mutant will compare to the previous, and why people will be shocked by some of the R-rated dialogue, among other things. "The Colossus you're going to see in Deadpool is very true to the original character in the comic book," said Tricoteux during a Tech Times Q&A. "[Director] Tim Miller had a really clear vision, and the Deadpool people had a really clear vision of what they wanted. They wanted Colossus to be very traditional »
It's been known for a while now that Colossus will appear in Tim Miller's Deadpool (with Andre Tricoteux taking over for Daniel Cudmore), but what hasn't been clear is how big of a role he'll have. Is he just going to have a cameo, or will the metal mutant be teaming up with the "Merc with the Mouth" for a good chunk of the upcoming movie? During a Q&A... Read More »

Though we've been treated to plenty of behind-the-scenes footage and a teaser trailer, we really haven't seen much from Deadpool at all. And that's because the filmmakers are being very stealthy in the way they are marketing this Marvel superhero movie. Right now, it appears as though the entire story takes place on a bridge, during a shootout. While this scene is a key action set piece, it is only a vary small part of the adventure. One of the major elements at play, which we haven't seen too much of, is the inclusion of X-Men character Colossus. Some believe he's in the movie for just a mere cameo, to appease Mutant fans and get them into the theater. Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld says that's not true. We'll actually be getting quite a bit of Piotr Nikolaievitch Rasputin on the big screen this February. Rob Liefeld had this to say about his inclusion. »
Stars: Jonathan Good (aka Dean Ambrose), Roger R. Cross, Daniel Cudmore, Lochlyn Munro, Ty Olsson, Sarah Smyth, Rebecca Marshall, Kirby Morrow, Samuel Smith, Toby Levins, James Michalopoulos | Written by Nathan Brookes, Bobby Lee Darby | Directed by Stephen Reynolds
12 Rounds 3: Lockdown continues the long-running franchise with yet another WWE superstar given the chance to headline. This time round we have Dean Ambrose, a wrestler known for his anarchic, unstable nature who doesn’t play by the rules. And that’s essentially the same character he plays here – only this time his character, Shaw, also happens to be a cop. The only good cop in his precinct it would seem, given just how many men Shaw’s former partner turned nemesis, Burke, brings with him to take on Shaw!
Essentially another Die Hard clone (as were the first two movies), 12 Rounds 3 sees Shaw, following the death of his partner, finally return to active duty. »

Some good news for fans of the X-Men’s metal-skinned mutant Colossus, as Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has suggested that Piotr Rasputin will feature “a good amount” in the Merc with a Mouth’s upcoming solo movie.
“You guys have seen a glimpse of him in the trailer; at San Diego in Hall H, they showed a little bit more of Colossus,” Liefeld told fans during a Q&A at the Amazing Hawaii Comic-Con (via Comic Book). “You are going to love Colossus in Deadpool. He’s in it a good amount; he doesn’t just walk through the movie.
Deadpool is set for release on February 5th 2016 in the UK and February 12th 2016 in the States. Reynolds and Miller will share the screen with Morena Baccarin (Gotham) as Copycat, Gina Carano (Fast & Furious 6) as Angel Dust, »

In this edition of The Week in Spandex, we look at Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Gambit, X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, Agent Carter, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Vixen, Supergirl, Hellboy 3, The Crow and more…
Well, it’s here. The final superhero movie of 2014 arrives with a bang – only not the kind of bang 20th Century Fox was hoping for. Having been surrounded by negativity from the start, the studio’ reboot of Fantastic Four opened this past Thursday to a wave of bad reviews and a whimper at the box office. It’s currently at 9% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it one of the worst-received superhero movies ever (a title I’m not sure it really deserves, but…), and despite early tracking indicating a $40-$50 million weekend, »

Back in February, X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past star Daniel Cudmore revealed that the role of Colossus would be recast in Fox’s X-Men spinoff Deadpool, with Andre Tricoteux (Seventh Son) subsequently announced as having secured the part.
Well, it turns out that Cudmore was offered to reprise the role, with director Tim Miller telling Empire that: “I did actually call Daniel Cudmore to ask him if he wanted to do this, even though he’d be entirely CG the whole time. He was very nice about it. He was like, ‘I appreciate your offering, but nah.'”

Cudmore then took to Twitter in response, stating that: “I did get a call for Colossus but it was CGI/stunts and not using my voice so I graciously passed. Love 2 play him in the future as an actor. »

The towering giant known as Colossus is one of those mutant heroes who hasn.t properly received his due in the various X-Men movies. After appearing briefly in X2: X-Men United and Brett Ratner.s X-Men: The Last Stand, Colossus (as played by actor Daniel Cudmore) finally got some battle action in Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past. And he was offered the chance to play him again. but he passed. I did get a call for Colossus but it was CGI/stunts and not using my voice so I graciously passed. Love 2 play him in the future as an actor. daniel cudmore (@danielcudmore) August 5, 2015 That.s a Tweet from Colossus actor Daniel Cudmore, who admits that he could have returned to play the shiny, metallic mutant in Tim Miller.s Deadpool movie, but didn.t necessarily agree with how he was going to be portrayed on screen. »
After a long and arduous wait, 20th Century Fox debuted two versions of the much-hyped Deadpool trailer earlier this week, sending the vying masses into a collective tailspin as fans picked apart every blood-red frame of Tim Miller’s impressive sizzle reel. Pulling no punches, the volatile mix of R-rated action and comedy went down a treat, and now Empire has debuted a play-by-play breakdown of that trailer that includes commentary from Miller himself.
Covering the appearance of Colossus, sequel ideas and those Green Lantern jibs, here the director adds context to the mayhem, and the first thing Miller touched upon was the possibility of Deadpool 2 including the villain Cable.

Even though 20th Century Fox has awarded The Fantastic Four 2 with a June 2017 release date, that doesn't necessarily mean it's going to happen. The early reviews are in, and this weekend's Fantastic Four reboot isn't faring well with credits. If audiences feel the same come Monday, Fox's own Marvel Cinematic Universe may need some rejiggering as they contemplate a X-Men/Fantastic Four Crossover Movie. And even though the new Deadpool trailer has been well received by fans, don't expect to hear about a sequel until closer to the release date. Even though it may be a few months before Fox confirms Deadpool 2, that hasn't stopped director Tim Miller from making some early plans. And he even knows which villain he may use.
How many times have you already watched the Deadpool trailer that debuted last night on Conan? Well, you surely missed some aspects of this epic, blood-soaked footage. There are plenty of little Easter eggs and not so obvious nods to the Marvel comic books upon which it is based. Director Tim Miller, who makes his directorial debut with this anticipated X-Men spinoff, joined Empire magazine for a comprehensive breakdown of every main shot, and the meaning behind it. First and foremost, he seems to understand that fans weren't happy the first time the Merc with the Mouth made it to the big screen.
Since the 2009 release X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which inexplicably sewed one of Marvel's most talkative character's mouth shut, Ryan Reynolds has aggressively tried to reboot the character on the big screen. »
With the rave reception to the first "Deadpool" trailer at Comic Con and again last night with the first trailer's online release, it's of little surprise that those involved in the Ryan Reynolds-led R-rated comic book adaptation have already been thinking about sequel ideas.
Speaking with Empire for a feature article dissecting the new trailer, the film's director Tim Miller says that he knows which villain he may use in a second film were it to go forward - X-Force leader Cable:
"We had Garrison Kane in there for a while, but in the final round of budget cuts we had to take him out, because he was a pretty expensive dude. He's got these bionic arms that change shape; he would have been a visual effect for a large part of the movie.
And as it turned out, a visual effect too far. I went through the list »

Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool is the film we never thought we'd see. 20th Century Fox kept the X-Men spinoff in limbo for years, and after his less than auspicious on-screen debut (more on that below), things didn't look good for Marvel Comics' 'Merc with a Mouth'.
More fool us. And when the first trailer debuted at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, it was so well received that they played it twice.
Guess where I'm hiding the chimichanga, and win!

We live in hope, and until it arrives next year, here's everything we know about the former Green Lantern's comic book movie:
