As we’re sure you all remember, Stefan Kapicic did an excellent job playing Colossus in last year’s blockbuster Deadpool. Being one of the cast members who are going to reprise their roles in the upcoming sequel, the actor has recently talked about the highly-anticipated title. Kapicic was so excited to talk about both his role and the movie itself that he was tempted to reveal more than he should.
Namely, according to Heat Vision, Kapicic first hinted that his character “will continue to grow” in Deadpool 2. He also said: “I am a comic book fan. I would love if I could share because it’s incredible what’s going on.” It has been only a month since they started shooting the movie, so we can’t expect anyone from the crew to reveal some specific details yet, but this Deadpool star made it clear that we should expect a lot from the second movie in this franchise. “When they [fans] find out what’s happening in the sequel…” the actor felt the need to say more, but he had to stop so as not to violate his NDA.
However, when it comes to his role, he said a little bit more: “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.”
As you already know, former Deadpool director Tim Miller departed some time ago, and David Leitch (“Atomic Bomb”) is now at the helm of the project. When asked about this, Kapicic only concluded: “The way he is working with me, how to bring more of Colossus is unbelievable. He just relaxes you and is so intelligent and is a visionary. Which you can see through his movies.”
Deadpool 2 is set to hit theaters on June 1, 2018. Until then, stay tuned for more details.
