Gina Carano & Colossus Joining Ryan Reynolds in Fox's 'Deadpool'
Just after Ryan Reynolds teased a prototype of the mask he'll don for Deadpool this week, the cast of 20th Century Fox's anticipated comic book adaptation is adding another cast member. THR reports MMA fighter turned actress Gina Carano will take a role in the film as a character called Angel Dust. That name should sound familiar to comic book fans as she was part of an underground mutant group known as the Morlocks, but we'll see if they actually end up using that storyline detail in the film or not. Considering how badass Carano was in Haywire and Fast & Furious 6, she should make for some solid action scenes. More below!
In addition, the trade has also learned that the metallic mutant Colossus will appear in the movie. However, it's not clear if he'll be played by Daniel Cudmore, who played the character in X2: X-Men United, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past most recently. My bet is that if it's a prominent role, they'll get a bigger name actor, and maybe they'll even make him Russian this time, but we can't be sure. Anyway, Carano joins a cast that also includes T.J. Miller and Ed Skrein, though we don't know what roles they'll be playing. Stay tuned as more details on Deadpool are sure to surface soon.
