Colossus has been a mainstay in the X-Men comic book universe since the mid-’70s, but we’ve seen so little of his character in the actual films — he’s appeared in three of the five X-Men movies, but his involvement is always so brief. That’s going to change in the Deadpool film, as actor Andre Tricoteux has revealed that we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of Colossus.

Minds behind the live-action X-Men universe surprised us all with the announcement of not one, but two distinct series based on characters from the mutant universe, but somewhat unclear was their relationship to the films. Now, Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley offers a bit of clarification, seemingly distancing all three branches of the X-Men properties.

Yesterday, we learned that 20th Century Fox had worked out a new accord with Marvel permitting the studio to ferry one of its hottest properties into the lucrative land of milk and honey that is television. Fox has announced plans to develop two shows spun off from their X-Men franchise, one about an elite organization of mega-rich mutants called Hellfire and another about David Haller, a.k.a. the son of Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Legion. A new report from Den of Geek (still awaiting confirmation from Marvel) suggests that there may be an unknown flip side to this deal that would place The Fantastic Four, one of Marvel’s most iconic properties, back in their portfolio with another big-screen project to follow.

The X-Men cinematic universe has been mulling around a TV branch for some time now, and at last we've learned that mutants will invade not one, but two new series. FX has tapped Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley to helm a series around Professor Xavier's son Legion, while FOX will join the club, literally and figuratively, with a Hellfire TV series.

Marvel Still Pissed at Fox, Now Using The Inhumans to Kill Off The X-Men

The Marvel Cinematic Universe was built out of spare parts. With heavy-hitters like Spider-Man and the X-Men owned by different studios, Marvel Studios bet big on less popular characters and emerged victorious. Suddenly, Iron Man and Captain America became a big deal for ordinary, non-nerd people. Marvel no longer needs their big guns to matter. And now, they’re showcasing their clout by ruthlessly removing the X-Men from the comic book landscape using the characters they intend to replace them with – the Inhumans.

With the X-Men timeline effectively reset following the events in Days of Future Past, and with Gambit and Deadpool movies on the way, 20th Century Fox’s version of the MCU is now open to more interesting possibilities. Writer and producer Simon Kinberg has previously hinted at crossover possibilities within the mutant cinematic universe, but his latest statements suggest that the idea has moved from hypothetical to legitimate plan.

Comic Strip: Someone Asked Andrew Garfield About the New Spider-Man Reboot

Oh, Andrew Garfield. No one blames you for the creative and commercial failure of the Amazing Spider-Man movies. You would’ve made a fine Peter Parker. At times, you even were a fine Peter Parker. But you were saddled with poor screenplays and a director who was at constant war with his studio. You did everything that you possibly could with nothing. We remember your first big Comic-Con apperance. We know you’re a fan of the character. And we’re oh-so-sorry that this happened to you.

FOX’s Live-Action ‘X-Men’ TV Series Maybe, Sort of Close to Official Marvel Deal

While its cinematic branch increasingly braces for the Apocalypse, the X-Men franchise may yet have come closer to mutating into a live-action TV series. FOX updates that continued negotiation for a “long-running series” rages on, though Marvel will have final say on use of the characters.

Channing Tatum’s ‘Gambit’ Movie Is Back On Again

Earlier this week news broke that Channing Tatum had abruptly (at least from an outsider’s perspective) exited the Gambit solo film. No reason was given, although with the reported, proposed budget coming in at $160 million (that’s $10 million more than X-Men: Days of Future Past), it seemed fair to speculate that Tatum’s departure had something to do with budget issues. You can breathe a sigh of relief now, though, because Tatum is back on the Gambit pony.
