Deadpool at SDCC: Stefan Kapicic wants Colossus to take down MCU supervillain Galactus
Speaking during the SDCC, the actor who plays Colossus touched base on the possibilities that are in store in case Deadpool is brought back to Marvel.
Now that Comcast is officially out of the bidding war, it's highly likely that the Disney and Fox megadeal would be going through, with cinematic rights to many of the original Marvel characters being reverted to the mouse house. In these circumstances, it remains to be seen whether or not, Disney owned-Marvel studios would reinvent classic franchises like X-Men and Deadpool or let them operate independently.
All these discussions and debates happened to be a part of the ongoing SDCC Internationale at the San Diego convention. And joining the conversation was none other than Deadpool 2 actor Stefan Kapicic. Speaking with the fans and the press at the event, the actor who plays Colossus touched base on the several possibilities that are in store in case Deadpool is actually brought back home, to Marvel. And if his words are any indication, he is more than excited at such a prospect.
"Then as a geek, as a fan, I'd like to see all of the Marvel Universe together in a way going against, maybe Galactus because Thanos is already in progress," Kapicic told RCN TV adding, "There are so many beautiful arcs and so many beautiful stories."
In a separate discussion, the Deadpool actor also talked about the future of the R-rated franchise, in the hands of Marvel - whose approach has more or less been family friendly. “You know what, the thing is, nobody is stupid in those, I say studios or worlds, so nobody’s stupid and they know all of these things are making money and people love the way it’s already done. So if you wanna destroy a franchise, I don’t see sense in that and I’m sure that’s not gonna happen. I’m sure that Disney, or whatever happens, whoever gets it, is gonna stay honest and let the franchise live as it was because there is no reason why would you like make Deadpool PG because that’s not Deadpool anymore," he said, explaining his point of view.
Kapicic continued: "You have so many characters that you can do, like play like that. But for Deadpool people, they love Deadpool as R-rated movie and Ryan Reynolds is doing that."
"So I don’t think that X-Force is gonna be nothing different than what Fox was thinking to do with it. It’s still … there needs to pass a lot of time before they start getting involved in the creativity of that. So I don’t … I’m not afraid for X-Force and Deadpool for like a few years from now definitely."
