With the Deadpool movie less than a year away, we know surprisingly little about it. That being said, there are still casting reports coming in, as well as some speculations.
Gina Carano, of the Fast and the Furious franchise and Haywire, will be playing Angel Dust, a mutant with superstrength. The character was always associated with the Morlocks, a group of mutants whose physical mutations made it difficult to live in public. These deformed mutants made their own society underground. The Ultimate Nightcrawler eventually became their king.
There was also a report that said Colossus would make an appearance in the film. The Russian metallic mutant was played by Daniel Cudmore in three X-men movies, including Days of Future Past. Cudmore was assumed by many fans to be reprising the roll. Earlier this week, Cudmore shot this down in this tweet:
This means we could be looking at a recast Colossus very soon, or perhaps a simply incorrect rumor. For now, only time will tell.
