With Deadpool 2 set to introduce new characters such as Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz), you’d be forgiven for assuming that Deadpool’s X-Men buddies Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead might be set to take a back seat in the sequel as they make way for the members of X-Force.
However, speaking to THR, Colossus voice actor Stefan Kapicic has revealed that we’ll actually be seeing even more of Piotr Rasputin in the follow-up to last year’s box office cmash, while he also shared some praise for incoming director David Leitch.
“[Colossus] didn’t have time at all in the X-Men movies and he’s one of the iconic characters. He needed that space, and thank God [director] Tim Miller and Ryan and Fox decided to give him a spot, which will continue to grow… The way [David Leitch] is working with me, how to bring more of Colossus is unbelievable. He just relaxes you and is so intelligent and is a visionary. Which you can see through his movies.”
Deadpool 2 sees David Leitch (John Wick) directing a cast that includes returning stars Ryan Reynolds (Wade Wilson), Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), T.J. Miller (Weasel), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead), Stefan Kapicic (Colossus), Leslie Uggams (Blind Al) and Karan Soni (Dopinder) alongside new additions Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War) as Cable, Jack Kesy (The Strain) as the film’s villain, and Shioli Kutsuna (The Outsider) and Julian Dennison (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) in as-yet-unrevealed roles. It is set for release on June 1st 2018.
