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, Ed Skrein (Game of Thrones) as Ajax, Andre Tricoteux (Seventh Son) as Colossus, Leslie Uggams (Roots) as Blind Al and newcomer Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
