    $58 Million Budget Vs $200 Million Budget.

    In fairness to Singer, he had to stick to the crappy design they gave Colossus in X3. He looked much better in X2 in his cameo there, which also had a lower budget.

    Actually X3 stuck with the X2 design. Only problem was it looked really cheap. But both designs had that steel/flesh look. In Days of Future Past, he went with the comic accurate metal ridges, but he sadly still looked like ass.

    X3 and X2 designs were quite different, they were not the same Nathan. Many complained about the change in design when X3 came out. But that was what they went with so Singer had to stick to it for DOFP.

    This was his X2 design:

    Same design. Quality simply wasn't on par. Not even remotely. But they still went with the muscle fiber look, like X2's Colossus. But Singer went into a different direction with Days of Future Past. Getting closer to the comics, but sadly still making Colossus look like liquid like the T-1000.

    Sorry I don't think it's the same design, especially when you see a shot from the movie rather than a promotional one. There are similarities but differences also. X2 Colossus looked much better. But Singer had to keep things simpler for DOFP unfortunately. If Ratner had just stayed with the X2 look there wouldnt have been an issue.

    But we can at least agree about Deadpool Colossus looking awesome.

    Believe me, I really don't want to drag this out any further, but I feel like I'm getting a bit crazy, because I seem to be the only one to see it. But I promise, after this I'll stop.

    So here a couple more shots. A costume fitting, one from the set, and a screen shot of the Movie.

    So yeah, they tried to stick with Singer's design from X2. Giving Colossus the muscle fiber look. The big difference is the quality, which they simply weren't able to recapture. And Singer changed his look in Days of Future Past, giving him the ridges, and getting rid of the muscle fiber look.

    Oh, on that we can definitely agree.

    Uh, man that costume was bad, thanks for the reminding me, I have seen those pictures before of the X3 set. He didn't have a costume in X2 I believe, it was just an FX ****, and I doubt Singer would have made the actor wear one.

    But I still think there are plenty of differences. And yeah X2 was done much better. But Singer had to stick close to the crappy version for DOFP, despite making some changes he unfortunately still had to keep a similar design. Just remember though Miller would have had to check they could use Colossus and do what they want with him with the likes of Singer.

    Man, I still can't believe it took frikkin Deadpool to get Colossus right. With more screen time and dialogue than all X-Men Movies combined.

    Good stuff, thanks. Deadpool obviously has the best design. 2nd would be X2

    So not comparable though. The budget was for all the CGI not just Colossus and X-Men Days of Future Past had probably 10x the amount of CGI than Deadpool did

    I didn't think Colossus looked bad in Days of Future Past.

    Tim Miller definitely has knocked it out of the park, though. But you gotta consider his goal was to bring the definitive Colossus to life, and in order to do so had him played by Andre Tricoteux (on set), a stuntman (who did the fight scenes and was also the template for Colossus' face), Stefan Kapicic (voice) and Greg LaSalle (mo-cap) and used a brand new technology (co-created by LaSalle) for the very first time on an actual character, which can capture an actor's performance in much greater detail than before.

    It's a completely different approach.

    I dont mind DOFP Colossus but the adult versions will always be better than the teen versions of the X-Men characters to me. The Deadpool version also had the added advantage of having less characters around him to be able to shine more.

    his moment in X2 was great
    but it's not even funny how much better he looked and sounded in Deadpool

    rather than say "$58 million vs. $200 million"
    I'd say it's "A director who is a hardcore fan vs. A director who mostly just likes the comics' themes"

    Haha when I was watching the film I kept thinking half the film's budget must have went to Colossus alone.

    He was really well made. Absolutely love the look. Singer's X-Men movies are my favorite cbm's, but can't help but wonder what a director like Miller could do with all of the characters and their costumes. Then again, I wouldn't really like to see Colossus characterized like this in an X-Men movie. I mean it worked with Deadpool's tone, but he would stick out in a really unflattering way if he was portrayed like this in any of the main series movies.

    Wow, it's like a 16 year evolution where nothing really happened until the 16th year.

    Do you think we should have seen Colossus in his human form at all? or if he's back should we?

    They might have to cast a new actor for that as the Mo-Cap Colossus was comprised of a few different actors.
