Amusing DEADPOOL TV Spot With New Footage and 2 New Photos of Colossus
The first TV spot for Deadpool has been released! It's called "Super" it features some great new footage from the film along with some funny snarky dialogue from the Merc With a Mouth. I've also included two new photos have been released from Tim Miller's upcoming Deadpool, and they both feature Colossus. The images come from EW, who confirms that Serbian actor Stefan Kapicic will be providing the voice for the character, who was physically portrayed in the movie by stuntman Andre Tricoteux.
Fans seemed really happy with what they saw of the character in the first trailer for the film. I'm sure we'll see a lot more of it in the upcoming trailer coming on Christmas day. Kapicic talked about this new version of Colossus, saying:
“Tim Miller’s idea of Colossus was to be bigger and stronger than everyone else. So for the motion capture they needed an extremely tall man. I’m 6-foot-4, but he wanted Colossus to be over 7 feet, so they used a stunt double to recreate his height, and he did very good job there. Tim also wanted Colossus to sound as close as possible to the comic book character’s background, so he had me to come in, since my voice was what he envisioned for Colossus, who has an authentic Russian accent. My character’s voice gives him the past history as Piotr Rasputin once you hear him speak. This made him the most authentic to the original idea of the comic book character.”
It'll be fun to see Colossus team up with Deadpool in this movie. I'm sure the filmmakers had a lot of fun bringing him to life.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Ryan Reynolds stars in the film alongside T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax.
The movie will be released on February 12th, 2016
