Tom Rothman has been named head honcho of Sony Pictures, taking over from Amy Pascal who "stepped down" after that recent email hack fiasco. Even if you don't recognize his name, you will most definitely remember his work. Rothman ran Fox back when the likes of Daredevil, Elektra and the previous Fantastic Four movies were released. He fast-tracked X-Men: The Last Stand, forcing Bryan Singer to abandon the project, and then placed Brett Ratner at the helm. Word is he also micromanaged X-Men: Origins: Wolverine into such a mess that the film wasn't even recognizable to its director, Gavin Hood. Some say Rothman dislikes comic book movies in general, only having a hand in producing the ones he did because of how lucrative they are, and is allegedly one of the main reasons there is such bad blood between Fox and Marvel Studios these days. So you see, probably not »
Anthony Stokes on why X-Men: Days of Future Past has derailed the X-Men franchise…
I grew up with the X-Men franchise, and found myself getting less and less invested with every movie. They haven’t aged well, and there’s something a bit dull about some of the drama, especially that centered around Jean Grey, Wolverine, and Cyclops. There’s the Rogue and Iceman subplot that in retrospect feels really Twilight-ish. There’s also the fact that up to this point every X-Men movie has had Wolverine in it, and I’m burned out on it. The saving grace for the franchise was X-Men: First Class, which brought a breath of fresh air to the franchise and was something entirely new, sort of. I even enjoyed The Wolverine, which made Logan somewhat interesting and had some interesting characters. And then this little movie called Days of Future Past came out and threw off the momentum. »

While it seems the chances of the two series crossing over are slim, there are those within the films that would like to see X-Men and The Fantastic Four cross paths at some point down the road.
One man in particular is Shawn Ashmore, who played Bobby Drake aka Iceman in X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past, who says that a crossover is “not totally out of the realm of possibility” becuase 20th Century Fox own both licenses.
“I’m excited to see the new Fantastic Four,” he told ComicBook. “That’s what I really want to see, that’s what I’m really curious about. I want to see that take on it. I think it would be dope to see a little crossover between the X-Men, maybe some Fantastic Four, maybe Bobby flying around with The Fantastic Four one of these days. That would be cool, »

It was late last week that it was confirmed that the steel skinned Colossus from the X-Men movies would be rubbing shoulders with Ryan Reynolds when the actor finally takes the lead in a long over due Deadpool movie, and at the time it was unclear if Daniel Cudmore, who has played Colossus in X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now, I thought it would be a given that Cudmore would be reprising the role, mainly down to him being brought back for Days of Future Past, but it turns out, with the actor himself confirming on Twitter, that he will not be returning, and the role is going to be recast. This raises a few questions, one being, since it is an X-Men spin-off after all, will Deadpool be following the new timeline created in Days of Future Past, and bringing in a younger version of the character, »

It was recently revealed that the Colossus character will appear in the upcoming "Deadpool" film. It was immediately assumed that actor Daniel Cudmore, who played the superhero in "X2: X-Men United," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" would be reprising his role. But now comes word that the part is being recast. "Thanks everyone for all the support for me to reprise the role of Colossus in 'Deadpool,' but unfortunately it won't be happening for me," Cudmore wrote on Twitter. "I've had a blast playing such an awesome character over the years! 'Deadpool' will be kick-ass with [director] Tim Miller and [Ryan] Reynolds." It's not clear why Cudmore is being replaced, but it's possible that 20th Century Fox is looking for a younger actor. "Deadpool" is set to hit theaters on February 12th, 2016. »
Bryan Singer has announced on his Instagram account that Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) has joined the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse and will play a young Nightcrawler, the character made popular in the franchise's second feature, X2: X-Men United as played by Alan Cumming, particularly in that fantastic opening sequence. Meanwhile, in somewhat similar X-Men related news, Daniel Cudmore who played the mutant Colossus in X2, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: First Class tweeted out that he will not be playing the character in the new Deadpool movie. It was made known recently that the Colossus character will be featured in the film, but as far as who will replace Cudmore there are no details available just yet, or if the character will appear in Apocalypse... I have to assume they'll want to keep these worlds tied together... rightc Then again, this new Deadpool has »

When the Deadpool script leaked out a few years back, one detail that wound up getting a lot of attention was the fact that the story included a role for the Russian mutant known as Colossus. As a result of this, many people just assumed that this would mean that Daniel Cudmore would eventually wind up being cast in the film, as he played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and, most recently, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Sadly, however, it appears that Cudmore actually won't be appearing in the new X-Men universe film, and instead it appears that the role is going to be recast. This sad bit of news actually comes from Daniel Cudmore himself, who took to his Twitter today to announce that he would not be starring in director Tim Miller's Deadpool movie, which is set to star Ryan Reynolds in the »
Just last week, we learned that Mma fighter turned actress Gina Carano would join Ryan Reynolds for the anticipated big screen adaptation of Deadpool. At the same time, it was reported that the metal mutant Colossus would also be involved in the X-Men spin-off, but we didn't know if franchise star Daniel Cudmore, who played the character in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past, would be back to play the character. Now the actor himself has taken to Twitter to clarify that he will not be part of Deadpool, meaning a new actor will be cast as the strong, Russian mutant. Read on! Here's Daniel Cudmore's updates on Twitter about not playing Colossus in Deadpool: Thanks everyone for all the support for me 2 reprise the role of #Colossus in #Deadpool but unfortunately it won't be happening for me con't— daniel cudmore »

Last week when we heard Colossus would show up in Deadpool (not exactly a surprise, as he’s in the script that the screenwriters encouraged people to read months ago) we wondered if Daniel Cudmore would return for the role. He’s played the character a few times already, in films like X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand, […]

A report surfaced last week that revealed the popular X-Men character Colossus will be featured in 20th Century Fox's comic book adaptation Deadpool. No details were given as to how he fits into the story, or if Daniel Cudmore, who played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, will reprise his role. The actor revealed on his Twitter page last week that he couldn't comment on his involvement in Deadpool, but today, the actor revealed that he will not star in the superhero spinoff.
Of course, 20th Century Fox still hasn't confirmed that Colossus is even part of Deadpool yet, but the fact that the actor wouldn't comment on Friday before releasing a statement today likely means that the character will be involved. A casting call released yesterday described two male characters, dubbed "Ridge" and "Albert" as "Big, muscular and dangerous, »
As the casting call expands for roles in Tim Miller's upcoming Deadpool widens, we have additional news on the inclusion of X-men character Colossus. Colossus was played in X2: X-men United, X-men: The Last Stand and X-men: Days Of Future Past by actor Daniel Cudmore. The actor was recently asked via Twitter about his excitement regarding his role being included in Deadpool. He had this to say in response. Thanks everyone for all the support for me 2 reprise the role of »

There is still a great deal that we don.t know about director Tim Miller.s upcoming Deadpool movie . but one element from the script that has been generating chatter for years is the possible presence of Colossus, who we.ve previously seen on the big screen played by Daniel Cudmore in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Talks about this potential role has only gotten louder in the last few days, have reports have come out claiming to have confirmation of Colossus. involvement, but whether or not that story is true, one thing is definitely certain: having an established X-Men character appear in the film would be a very big deal for both the movie and the franchise as a whole. Why is that, you ask? Well, there are actually really very three key reasons, and I.ve laid them out for »
The upcoming "Deadpool" film is set to begin shooting in Vancouver next month. Ryan Reynolds is already set to reprise his role as the title character and now comes word that Mma champion Gina Carano (Haywire, Fast and Furious 6) has joined the cast. Carano will play Angel Dust, a little known mutant whose ability allows her to elevate her adrenaline levels to provide her with super strength. A member of the underground band of mutants who call themselves Morlocks, Angel Dust has barely appeared in the comics outside of a 2002 "Morlocks" mini-series. It has also been confirmed that the film will feature Colossus. Although it's not clear whether Daniel Cudmore (X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: First Class) will reprise the role. "Deadpool" co-stars Tj Miller and Ed Skrein, and is set to hit theaters on February 12th, 2016. »
Just after Ryan Reynolds teased a prototype of the mask he'll don for Deadpool this week, the cast of 20th Century Fox's anticipated comic book adaptation is adding another cast member. THR reports Mma fighter turned actress Gina Carano will take a role in the film as a character called Angel Dust. That name should sound familiar to comic book fans as she was part of an underground mutant group known as the Morlocks, but we'll see if they actually end up using that storyline detail in the film or not. Considering how badass Carano was in Haywire and Fast & Furious 6, she should make for some solid action scenes. More below! In addition, the trade has also learned that the metallic mutant Colossus will appear in the movie. However, it's not clear if he'll be played by Daniel Cudmore, who played the character in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand »

Buried within The Hollywood Reporter's story from earlier today, which revealed that Gina Carano is playing Angel Dust in Deadpool, was an intriguing tidbit that X-Men character Colossus is also slated to appear in the movie. Unfortunately, no further details were given as to how he fits into the plot, but a report from October revealed that Deadpool is a part of the X-Men franchise, so it would make sense that characters such as Colossus will be present.
Daniel Cudmore played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it wasn't said if the actor is reprising his role, or if another actor will take over for this project. What's also interesting is that Colossus wasn't featured in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which served as the first appearance of Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool, a.k.a. The Merc With the Mouth. »
Following our first, teasing look at the long awaited comic book adaption yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter is......reporting that Mma fighter turned actress Gina Carano will be joining the cast of X-Men sin-off Deadpool. Carano will be starring opposite Ryan Reynolds, as the titular fast healing assassin, and T.J. Miller's undisclosed comedy relief role as Angel Dust, a member of an underground dwelling band of mutants who call themselves Morlocks, who can elevate her adrenaline levels to give herself super strength. No doubt, given Carano's background she will take centre stage in some hard hitting fight scenes. Also, the trade confirms that long standing X-Men member will be making an appearance, though it is unconfirmed that actor Daniel Cudmore will be reprising the role. But considering he was brought back for last years X-Men: Days of Future Past after last playing the role in X-Men: The Last Stand in »

So apparently the upcoming Deadpool film will ignore the events that took place in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I can't remember if anything from that film found its way into X-Men: First Class or X-Men: Days of Future Past, but to be honest, at this point I don't know what's what or really care when it comes to most Wolverine-related issues. As for this Deadpool movie, I'll admit to being a little curious, primarily because Ryan Reynolds has fought rather hard to get it made and, unless I'm mistaken, the goal is to make an R-rated movie featuring the title character referred to as the "Merc with a Mouth". As director Tim Miller prepares for the upcoming March shoot in Vancouver, with Reynolds recently tweeting out a behind the scenes shot (see below) announcing we are now one year away from the film's February 12, 2016, the first new cast member has been announced. »

Actress Gina Carano has signed on to play Angel Dust in 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero adaptation Deadpool, alongside Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller. In the Marvel Comics, Angel Dust was part of an underground mutant group known as the Morlocks, although it isn't quite known yet how she fits into the story. Ryan Reynolds returns as the title character, which he first portrayed in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The Hollywood Reporter also reveals that X-Men character Colossus is slated to appear in the movie. Daniel Cudmore played Colossus in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past, but it wasn't said if the actor is reprising his role, or if another actor will take over for this project. No story details have been released at this time.
