More and more it seems that all the players from the first X-Men film franchise are teasing that they might be involved with X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Patrick Stewart as well as Famke Janssen have given fans hope that we will see them in upcoming X-Men movies. Daniel Cudmore, who portrayed Colossus in the first franchise, talked to Comic Book Therapy and said he isn't so sure. Although he says he would love to. Said Cudmore on returning, "I don’t know, I’d love to. If they’re into it I’m down. Again, at the end of the day it’s really up to the big wigs of Hollywood on what they want to do. You just kind of smile and go with it." With the time travel aspect of Days of Future Past it would look like we can't rule out anyone from the first set of films to return. After Matthew Vaughn dropped out of directing the film and Bryan Singer rumored to possibly jump in and take his place, it would seem as though the chances of seeing some of the original cast wouldn't be totally out of the question. For the latest on all things X-Men including The Wolverine as well as Days of Future Past make sure to check back here as CBM regularly.

Again!! No love for the small wigs...
PsyGuy - 10/29/2012, 8:46 AM
Of course he would.
plasticman - 10/29/2012, 8:50 AM
Colossus is one of my favorites in the X-Men. I feel as if he has not been given the proper spotlight in the franchise. Bring on more of the peaceful-metallic Russian.
third3ye - 10/29/2012, 8:51 AM
Finally got to see him in action in Halo FUD ep4, guy is a beast. Can't say he's a good actor but he sure has the build to be Colossus.
valeriesghost - 10/29/2012, 8:52 AM
Love to see it. A great character that needs some screen time.
Nomis1800 - 10/29/2012, 8:54 AM
I think XMDOTFP would be the right film to set the entire mythology right.
DrRockso - 10/29/2012, 8:55 AM
Oh shit I just realized, they gotta bring Ben Foster back. But not the cheeseball with the zippo
HelaGood - 10/29/2012, 8:55 AM
colossus would be awesome if done right. but they didnt give him enough to do in the other films.
MisterMagurlypse - 10/29/2012, 8:58 AM
Colossus is one of my favorites too. This guy did good with what little he was given. Hope they include the big guy in the next outing.
ClarkFarley2012 - 10/29/2012, 9:01 AM
Please don't let Singer direct this. I'm still fuming over SR.
Theunderdog - 10/29/2012, 9:03 AM
Daniel Cudmore visually perfect for the part of colossus he is tall and built but in acting department they didn't gave him much of screen time and he needed a Russian accent

I wished they would have concentrate on the relationship between colossus and kitty pryde in X-3 better than ulitmate adapted kitty X Iceman
Theunderdog - 10/29/2012, 9:04 AM
ClarkFarley2012@ Why you disagree with Br singer to direct it?
BruceLeroy - 10/29/2012, 9:14 AM
Fox did a freaking horrible job with Collossus. It sucked to see one of my favorite X-Men be regulated to wallpaper status.
ClarkFarley2012 - 10/29/2012, 9:23 AM
He is a horrible director. All of the X movies were subpar. Too many mutants running around. I love Magneto to death but 3 movies with him as the baddie was too much.
Bretner - 10/29/2012, 9:23 AM
Yes my buddies and I are completed agreed Daniel Cudmore must be there along with Angelina Jolie as Wanda Maximoff / the Scarlet Witch and Ellen Page as Kitty Pryde.

- We are X men for big fans, Days of Future Past although we despite this story about Sentinels grace the screen Bastion and Nimrod must along there as well. Bastion as a leader for Master Mold / Giant Sentinel Bastion started life out as two separate beings: the Sentinel Master Mold, and Nimrod, a highly-advanced Sentinel from an alternate future. While posing as a human construction worker, Nimrod unearthed a module from Master Mold. As soon as Nimrod made physical contact with the module, Master Mold’s programming began to co-opt Nimrod’s. and Nimrod is a mutant-hunting Sentinel from an alternative future and was created by the Sentinels ruling that timeline. and probably Roderick “Rory” Campbell / Ahab will be there too.
- Professor X was implied in X men 3 Last Stand after he was fighting with Dark Phoenix. When he wakes up, he finds that the mutants of his world are imprisoned by the Sentinels. He telepathically connects with the X-Men of the past to try to prevent that future from happening. By the end of the first season, the Sentinel-dominated future was averted. However, a future based on the Age of Apocalypse has appeared in its place.
( Famke Janssen )Dark Phoenix is resurrected in this future time line and becomes the fully realized White Phoenix of the Crown, her power look super massive waves, more powerful than Dark Phoenix in X men 3 Last Stand using the abilities of the Phoenix Force to defeat Sublime and eliminate the dystopic future by reaching back in time it’s more a matter of Jean Grey as a White Phoenix being much more aware of the nature and power of the Phoenix and not being trapped to a physical body, and thus, being able to see more of how the universe should work and being able to change it on a more fundamental level. So in that, a White Phoenix is more powerful than a Dark Phoenix just like in X men 3 the Last Stand. There should be a super explosion where Dark Phoenix and Scott were buried, in the middle of a night, and then they should both appear coming out of the rubble! Jean’s powers should be under her control as White phoenix of the Crown. she had a Life- Force Control The Phoenix Force can control and manipulate life and death itself. she also has a Psionic nexus or center of all psionic energy throughout the cosmos, the host attains nigh-infinitely powerful mental abilities, including telepathy, empathy,and telekinesis, and often seeks out hosts who have psionic abilities. When bonded with a host, the Phoenix Force vastly strengthens and amplifies all of their superhuman mutant powers and abilities to immeasurable and innumerable power levels.Now she wears a white one in X-Men Days of Future Past
Charlize Theron would be OK as Emma Frost / The White Queen
The Phoenix Force would return to Earth during where it resurrected Dark Phoenix from her grave ( in X men 3) . It is not long before she remembers what she has come for — Scott Summers (a.k.a. Cyclops). She needs to feed from the energy from his optic blasts, and confused by Jean’s emotions thinks she’s in love with Scott. She realizes Scott is in love with Emma Frost (former White Queen of the Hellfire Club and headmistress of the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning). Through a number of incidents, including Jean having Wolverine kill her a number of times, Jean trapping herself in a glacier, the Phoenix Force jumping into Emma Frost. Jean Grey managed to assert herself and gain control of the Phoenix Force, with emotional support of all the X-Men. Jean then declares that she and the Phoenix force are truly one entity now, have transcended into the White Phoenix of the Crown. Jean will have to say goodbye a second times for Scott Summers / Cyclops ( James Marsden ), she will be unknown with Phoenix’s teleport. in X men 2 United Jean said goodbye for the first times sacrifice herself to save the X-men in a Big Jet !
- X-Men and Brotherhood must join forces against Apocalypse, who wants to kill all the humans, turn all the mutants into his slaves, and rule the entire world! X- Men and Brotherhood must work together to come up with a plan to kill Apocalypse and save the world once again! The government should support the X- Men and Brotherhood because Apocalypse is a threat to both humans and mutants! Apocalypse should come to life in one of the pyramids of Egypt.
Juggernaut should be come back because in X men 3 he was unconscious Mystique, Magneto, and Rogue, should all regain their powers because in the movie it must be shown that the “cure”, made for the mutants, by humans, only shut down their powers for a certain amount of time but could not kill their powers permanently! Rogue should be much more powerful and be able to fly in this movie. And Rogue should be paired with Gambit this time and not Iceman because Rogue and Gambit are the original couple from the comics and animated series! It must be shown that Iceman and Rogue broke up longtime ago and are now just friend and members of X- Men team! Gambit should feel attracted to Rogue while they are all working together to stop Apocalypse, Mister Sinister! Kurt Wagner/ Nightcrawler should be included as a part of the movie! Kurt and Rogue should find out that Mystique is their mother! The shape-shifter is then revealed to be Mystique, who was working for Apocalypse, but Rogue lets her escape because Mystique reveals that she was Rogue’s adoptive mother years ago.
Mystique should have something to do with bringing Apocalypse to life because she wants revenge from Magneto for leaving her there in the previous part!
Upon entering Apocalypse’s tomb, Mystique should press a stone button that would bring Apocalypse to life but turns her into stone! Professor Xavier must find a way bring her back to life later then she should also help others in their plan to kill Apocalypse! Magneto should not be the villain this time! As a matter of fact, Magneto should realize that he should have been with Professor Xavier all along! There should also be some positive and funny interaction between them since they are childhood friends and now also allies! ( such as in X-Men First Class Movie )
Magneto also encounters with his daughter she is Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch. Angelina Jolie is the best way for Scarlet Witch in DOFP !! Senator Kelly will have to be in DOFP too. and Avalanche, Blob, Sabretooth, Pyro, and probably Toad will have to be there too.
Ian Somerhalder is the best perfect for an older Alex Summers / Havok, after Lucas Till as young Alex Summers / Havok in FC, probably Lucas Till will be involving in DOFP.
Halle Berry as Ororo Munroe / Storm must along with Bishop in DOFP ! we saw in X men 3 Last Stand her power was weak and her action wasn’t like extreme action, we hope in DOFP her power is powerful with long hair and wearing a sexy costume such as comic book even she’s a teacher !
There should be some interaction between Phoenix and Storm to show their friendship because in the comics and in the animated show they are very best friends but in the movies they barely talk to one another! Halle Berry promise it won’t stink for make another an X-men after a last Stand !! Selene Gallio / The Black Queen must be there too.

Involving Age Apocalypse and X men Days of Future Past with villains are Apocalypse, Mister Sinister, Exodus, Holocaust, Bastion, Nimrod, Sentinel / Master Mold, Lady Deathstrike, Mystique.

CorndogBurglar - 10/29/2012, 9:24 AM
He was awful. Between X2 and X3 he had like 4 lines, all of them were very poorly said. He is clearly not a good actor. He also did not have a Russian accent.

FoxForce5 - 10/29/2012, 9:27 AM
Eh, he looked the part but, as others said, didn't have much to do and NEEDS to be Russian. It's kind of key to hos character. Colossus being American is almost as bad as making Wolverine an Ausie... wait...
FoxForce5 - 10/29/2012, 9:31 AM
^not a reference to Jackman -btw
Matador - 10/29/2012, 9:39 AM
On X-Men DOFP - most of the characters that there mentioning would they still be dead because of old age, anyways? If Logan has a hard time aging and looks as old as he does Kitty Pryde should look like a granny.

Shit didn't Bryan Singer try to make Colossus gay too as in having some type of affection toward Wolverine?
Theunderdog - 10/29/2012, 9:48 AM
ClarkFarley2012@From all the movie Bryan directed Xmovies were his best. he is the right director to direct x-me He has great understanding of x-men world. I love x1 and x2 because they had such dark element

I think XFC was bit of comicish and comedic like all matthew vaughn movie that reason I didn't like it maybe it didn't bit dark color to it

Maybe you are hating Bryan because he made an awful superman movie
Theunderdog - 10/29/2012, 9:49 AM
Matador@ I think Kitty was at least in her 40's during the Day of future past event
Matador - 10/29/2012, 9:56 AM
Theunderdog @ So she was a cougar? Still funny cause Wolverine doesn't last long in the book for someone to have been around for ages.

And one hing that did bug the hell out of me in Singer's X-Men was the shitty leather costumes. How the [frick] do you fight like an X-Men with that suit constricting your whole body. It was painful to watch it was like O.J forcing his hand in a leather glove up a donkey ass.
Optimus83 - 10/29/2012, 10:22 AM
more cameos in Days of the Future Past. ...¡¡¡Good!!!
MrDuck - 10/29/2012, 10:27 AM
Dude Days of Future Past and the Third movie should have an event where it changes the universe so you could fix shit, like make Collosus russian, or have Rogue date Gambit or dont kill Cyclops and every other xman
SpideyQuad - 10/29/2012, 10:53 AM
Did this guy actually act in anything else other than the two X-Men movies?
SpideyQuad - 10/29/2012, 10:55 AM
Come to think of it, he was colossus about as much as Peter is in the comic. Which is not that much
ClarkFarley2012 - 10/29/2012, 10:58 AM
@ Theunderdog..I guess I had a higher standard for a movie for the Xmen. In my eyes their horrible. Yes I'm mad about SR but let's not kid ourselves let they were good movies. They were not.
IMNAvenger - 10/29/2012, 11:00 AM
They need a better actor for Colossus. I don't know why but I see Karl Urban as Colossus...probably because he played a Russian in the Bourne Supremacy!
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/29/2012, 11:01 AM
If FOX and Singer decides to bring back Cudmore as Colussus, then they must, and I mean MUST, give him more screen time and more character development than what Colossus had in the last three films. I was just dying to have Colossus play a bigger part in those X-Men films, but sadly it did not happen. So FOX can redeem themselves if they allow Colossus to play a bigger role in this film than in his previous appearances. So I'm all for Cudmore coming back as Colossus in this film. Colossus is my favorite mutant/X-Men, so here's to hoping, my friends. :)
DaneE5R - 10/29/2012, 11:02 AM
How can people say he was terrible based on literally 2 lines? He wasn't given a chance to BE terrible.
SpideyQuad - 10/29/2012, 11:03 AM
If anything, the first two movies success justified the Fox Studios that following the Canon in the comics was not that important. That gave us a decade of crack from Fox as far as CBM's go
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 10/29/2012, 11:03 AM
And yes, I do agree with the CBMers in here that if Cudmore does reprise his role as Colossus, he must have a Russian accent. That's the key element to Piotr Rasputin. So again, here's to Cudmore coming back as Colossus. :)
SpideyQuad - 10/29/2012, 11:04 AM
Dane, he didn't even look like Colossus. The color and shade was all wrong
Theunderdog - 10/29/2012, 11:06 AM
ClarkFarley2012@ Debating you would be a waste of time I can't change your mind
SpideyQuad - 10/29/2012, 11:09 AM
They can fix a whole lot by just keeping Holly Berry as far away from this film as possible. I would rather see an angry Marcone, From the walking dead, play storm then hear what happens to a toad when it gets hit by lightning again.
IMNAvenger - 10/29/2012, 11:17 AM
@ DaneE5R - I think that's the point. I'm thinking he was given 2 lines for a reason. Hollywood has a tendency to do that with actors who look the part or have a certain ability. A good example is Ray Park. He's only been given a few lines for a reason. He's an exceptional martial artist but if you have ever seen Ballistic: Eckes vs. Sever, it shows he doesn't even have great acting ability...he's great for the role of Snake Eyes. But who knows, Cudmore may surprise us right?
toco89 - 10/29/2012, 11:43 AM
@Bretner
I didn't know you could write that much in one comment.
ClarkFarley2012 - 10/29/2012, 11:54 AM
@ Theunderdog.. indeed my friend.
gambgel - 10/29/2012, 12:01 PM
isnt this the same interview posted a few weeks ago?
ralfinader - 10/29/2012, 12:02 PM
Duh. Of course he wants to come back. He wants to avoid waiting tables just as much as any other unemployed shitty actor or actress.
