The Colossus that we came to know and love in Deadpool could have been very different, ComicBook.com has discovered. Artist Alexander Lozano came up with several ideas for Colossus's look, describing the process like so:
Before the 'final design' was found, I tried a few different ways. At that point of time, I didn't know if Colossus was planned as a 'walking around in bright daylight' character or more of a 'hide in the shadows' hero like in the old X-Men days. So I played around with a Darth Maul-hoodie and the idea to place the 'X' very subtle on his chest with the endings of his scarf. I also wanted to repeat the ripples in his arms with the design of the boots. ...and a lot of possibilities to fix all the X-Men mansion keys at his pants.
This look lets the platinum pecs speak for themselves!
Under The Hood
Is anyone else getting Assassin's Creed vibes from this outfit?
That looks like a super comfortable waistcoat thingy.
Color coordinating gilet and boots? Classy, Colossus!
X Gon' Give It To Ya
This bold "X" design is the one we saw in the movie.
Deadpool hits Blu-ray and DVD May 10, giving you another chance to marvel at Colossus in his final form. Do you think the right design was chosen?
