While concept artist Joshua James Shaw worked on designs for Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), director Tim Miller gave Alexander Lozano — the artist responsible for the cool Captain America: Civil War promotional artwork — the task of designing the X-Men's metal-skinned mutant, Colossus.
"Before the 'final design' was found, I tried a few different ways," Lozano explained. "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."

Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
On Blu-ray™ and DVD May 10.
