When they were making the first Deadpool, they filmmakers were given little budget and had to pretty much beg to get any of the X-Men in the movie. Getting both Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead wasn’t an easy task… and almost no one had ever heard of Negasonic Teenage Warhead before Deadpool.
Things are a little bit different planning for the sequel though, especially since Deadpool completely crushed mainstream X-Men film X-Men: Apocalypse in the worldwide box office numbers. We’ve known Deadpool 2 was going to include a lot more characters than the first film, but many have asked if the Moody Teenager and CGI Character would appear for a second time as well.
On this installment of the podcast, we talk about Spider-man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the weird Wheel of Time Pilot that aired, the Master returning in the Doctor Who Series 9 opener, the new Rick Flagg in Suicide Squad, the first picture of Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Deadpool-casting-pa-looza, and Nick and Pher’s trip to Anime Milwaukee.
According to Screencrush, Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds in the titular role, will include fellow Marvel characters Colossus and Angel Dust.
There is no word if Daniel Cudmore will reprise the role of Colossus from the X-Men films, but actress (and former mixed martial artist) Gina Carano has been cast as Angel Dust. Most comics fans are familiar with Colossus, but Angel Dust is a more obscure — first appearing in 2002 as one of the Morlocks.
But hey, as long as the part is well written, it doesn’t really matter.
