Last week when we heard Colossus would show up in Deadpool (not exactly a surprise, as he’s in the script that the screenwriters encouraged people to read months ago) we wondered if Daniel Cudmore would return for the role. He’s played the character a few times already, in films like X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand, and X-Men: Days of Future Past. But now Cudmore himself says he’s not doing the gig.
Which leads us to wonder: with Colossus recast, does this mean we’ll see the character in new or different form in X-Men: Apocalypse? Read More »

Casting an amazing actor like Oscar Isaac in a superhero movie is always a great idea, even when you don’t get to see him. Isaac is playing Apocalypse in Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse, a character that – as you can see from the image above – doesn’t really have many human looking qualities. He’s alien, he’s got this huge costume, you’d think Isaac would be unrecognizable as the character. However, we’ve already seen a glimpse of his younger self in Days of Future Past so there’s no guarantee that the film version of Apocalypse will be similar to the comic book version.
In a new interview, Isaac talked a bit about the look of his character, Apocalypse. He admitted that while there will be some digital effects, large parts of it will be physical too. Read Isaac’s Apocalypse costume quotes below. Read More »
