‘Deadpool’ Will Dive Deeper Into Colossus; Could We Hear The Russian Accent?

Many were a bit shocked that Daniel Cudmore wouldn’t be returning as the metal-skinned mutant in next year’s Deadpool. The actor had portrayed the character of Piotr Rasputin ever since X2 but was replaced by Russian actor Andre Tricoteux in the film after Cudmore chose to turn down the opportunity to return. While speaking with Tech Times, Tricoteux commented a bit on the film and revealed some interesting details about his version of the character. From the sounds of things, it might be a bit even closer to the comic incarnation than some had expected.

The Colossus you’re going to see in Deadpool is very true to the original character in the comic book. [Director] Tim Miller had a really clear vision, and the Deadpool people had a really clear vision of what they wanted. They wanted Colossus to be very traditional to the original story.

It also appears we might actually be getting more of the character than some had assumed. After being asked if the film would dive deeper into the charcter, Tricoteux had the following to say on the subject. 

Yeah, I think you’re going to get to see more of who Colossus is. Like I said, we kept him really traditional to the comic book. So yes, I think people will get a better sense of who he is. But I think there’s still a lot more to be told about him. Colossus has been around in the comics since the ‘70s, so I mean, I think you could do your own movie on him. Yeah, you’re going to get to see a little bit more of who he is and kind of his outlook on the world.

So, will this new Colossus feature the Russian accent that fans have been missing and wanting? When asked about that particular aspect, while he couldn’t give much away, the actor did say that “they kept it exactly like the comics, so you could be able to derive your own conclusion from that.”
