Sounds Like No Colossus In X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Daniel Cudmore seems fairly certain that Colossus will not be in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse. However, the underutilized X-Men actor is hoping for a role in Ryan Reynold's Deadpool movie. Is Colossus being recast or is the character simply not in the film?

Perhaps all the original actors from the first X-Men trilogy are being recast after the time-travel machinations of X-Men: Days of Future Past? James Marsden and Famke Janssen have both hinted that they're time as Cyclops and Jean Grey is over and it now appears that Daniel Cudmore's time as Colossus is over too. If the next X-Men film will continue the trend of alternate reality/time-travel and is based on the Age of Apocalypse storyline from Marvel Comics, it will be interesting to see whether Colossus' role in the popular comic book arc is completely written out our reconfigured to fit another character in Singer's vision for the film.

While he apparently has no role in the next X-Men movie, 6'8" actor is still holding out hope for one last X-Men-hurrah in Ryan Reynold's Deadpool movie. If the film is still based on the Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick script that leaked a few years back, there's a good chance that Colossus will indeed show up in the film.


AGE OF APOCALYPSE SYNOPSIS: In a twisted version of the world they knew, the X-Men battle against the eternal mutant Apocalypse as Bishop seeks to repair the timeline. Legion, Xavier's own son, attempts to kill off all of Xavier's enemies; however, when Legion attempts to murder Magneto, Xavier sacrifices his own life to save Magnus. As a result, Magneto casts off his anti-human sentiments and carries on Xavier's dream of peaceful co-existence, thereby founding the X-Men.
