When the FOX Deadpool production team announced the casting of Gina Carano they also revealed that Colossus would be showing up in the movie. That lead many to believe that Daniel Cudmore, who has played the role on the big screen since 2003, would be the one turning all shiny and perhaps punching Deadpool into the next county, but alas it is not to be.
Cudmore confirmed it himself on Twitter.

Well, that certainly opens the door for a retooling of Colossus’s look and stature. Will they go with a bulkier actor now? When Cudmore was first cast, Colossus was a much younger man in the story, still high school age. Will the Deadpool Colossus be older with a larger physique? If so, who do you think should take the role?
Perhaps Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson from Game of Thrones? He’s certainly big enough to play the adult Colossus.
Until we get some news on who might be playing Colossus, enjoy this Colossus X-Men: Days of Future Past tribute video. No, this is not the greatest Colossus X-Men: Days of Future Past video in the World. No this is just a tribute.
