Deadpool 2 is one of the most anticipated comic book films of 2018. The first film introduced us to many new and interesting characters, one of whom, Colossus, is returning in the sequel. Stefan Kapicic, who plays Colossus in the films, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about his experiences on set so far. Check out the quote below:
“I am a comic book fan. I would love if I could share, because it’s incredible what’s going on. When they [fans] find out what’s happening in the sequel …”
While careful not to violate any NDA, it is clear that he is excited for the direction this new installment is taking. Kapicic went on to discuss how Colossus has a bigger role in the sequel and how the film will answer some questions fans have had since the first film. Here’s what he had to say:
“He 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. That’s the thing I can say … the sequel will answer many questions, which people are asking right now. Because all the questions I can see on the net are answered in the sequel.”
