Various sites, including Comic Book Movie, recently spotted a Tech Times interview from earlier in the month with actor Andre Tricoteux, the new Colossus in next February's Deadpool. While he was unable to give too many specifics about his role away, he said, "The Colossus you're going to see in Deadpool is very true to the original character in the comic book."
He went on to say director Tim Miller and the production team had a "clear vision" of a Colossus "very traditional to the original story." That seemingly includes the character's accent. Though Tricoteux could not confirm it with a definitive yes or no, he said, "we kept it exactly like the comic book, so you could be able to derive your own conclusion from that."
Adding that his brother is a big fan of Colossus — and his go-to source for information about the character, Tricoteux thinks the audience will "get a better sense of who he is."
"But I think there's still a lot more to be told about him," he continued. "Colossus has been around in the comics since the '70s, so I mean, I think you could do your own movie on him. Yeah, you're going to get to see a little bit more of who he is and kind of his outlook on the world."
Deadpool opens on February 12th, 2016.
