Cudmore made his film debut in 2003’s “X2” where he portrayed Colossus in a cameo role. The character was given slightly more exposure in 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand” and he played a part in last year’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” Despite being a mainstay of the X-Men comics since his first appearance nearly forty years ago, Colossus’ participation on the big screen mostly hovered in the cameo range. Cudmore spent his years away from the X-franchise starring in another series of films; he played the Volturi Felix in four “Twilight Saga” films.

Colossus isn’t the only super strong character slated to appear in “Deadpool.” Recently revealed casting descriptions list a number of big and muscular characters, one of which could be Colossus. “Deadpool” opens on February 12, 2016.
