Part of X-Men: Days of Future Past’s script has been leaked and the excerpt spoils one key mutant’s death.

There’s sure to be many deaths in X-Men: Days of Future Past, as director Bryan Singer has free license to kill off and bring back as many mutants as he chooses since the film will deal with time travel.

Now an excerpt from the film’s script has reportedly leaked and revealed that a fan favorite X-Men character will meet his demise. Check out the leaked script excerpt below to find out who may be dying in the X-Men sequel. Obvious spoilers:

Update: Script excerpt removed at the request of the studio.

x men days of future past colossus smallColossus has been featured in many of the X-Men films. Colossus has a very small cameo as a student drawing in the Xavier Institute’s courtyard in the original X-Men film. He would later be played by actor Daniel Cudmore in 2003′s X2: X-Men United.

Fans may remember that he helps save several of the younger mutants when their school is under attack by Stryker. Colossus tells Wolverine he can help him, but Wolverine says, “No, help them.”

Colossus bangs on the hidden wall, which opens up an escape hatch to an underground exit from the mansion.

Daniel Cudmore would reprise his role as Colossus in X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006. He didn’t have a major role, but showed up in a few scenes featuring the Danger Room at the beginning of the film and then took part in the final battle on Alcatraz Island.

Cudmore will be playing Colossus in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and it looks as though his character may meet his demise after attempting to destroy one of the Sentinels that are being introduced by actor Peter Dinklage’s character Bolivar Trask.

Bryan Singer recently stated that while there is a “great deal of humor, the overall tone is a bit darker than previous films, particularly because of the stakes.” We imagine a few deaths will take place in the film and possibly be reversed by the time travel aspects.

X-Men: Days of Future Past’s release date is set for May 23, 2014. The film stars returning actors Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender. Also rejoining the X-Men franchise are Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, James Marsden, Ellen Page, and Hugh Jackman. Fan Favorite Peter Dinklage will be playing a major villain.

    I actually don’t mind this. I didn’t like this Colossus. I mean he wasn’t actually even Russian.

      Anyone here old enough to remember way back to the 1980s, when rumors of an X-Men film first began to surface? If those versions of the film had been made (instead of being delayed 16 or so years), Colossus would have been a major featured character, since he was a big part of the X-Men line-up at the time. Even back then, before the introduction of the Internet, there were fanboy rumors that would spring up around movies that were in production, and one of those persistent rumors (that lasted for years) was that Arnold Schwarzenegger was going to play Colossus. Of course, Arnold wasn’t Russian, he was Austrian, but he would have been closer to the age and personality of the character as shown in the comics. It’s kind of sad, because the X-Men I grew up with in the 1980s were quite a bit different than those featured in the films, and my favorite characters (Nightcrawler, Shadowcat/Kitty Pryde, and Colossus) all either had reduced parts in the films or were basically mere cameos.

        I remember reading about this but I wasn’t old enough at the time. But I agree, my fans are Nightcrawler, Shadowcat, and Colossus and I had been excited for them to be in the movies. I was okay with Nightcrawler and Shadowcat but Colossus was a huuuuge let down.

      • Michael Salt Thompkins

        I remember the 80′s that’s why it was hard to see absolutely no interaction between him and Kitty on the big screen. He’s had a pretty good run the past few years in the comics though but most of the movie fans don’t read comic books so they wouldn’t understand

  • soysauceking

    “bring bake” huh

  • TheDevil’sAdvocate

    How is this a major character? He’s been a glorified extra for the last few movies.

  • Pamcakess

    Last I heard, Anna Paquin’s role got cut off from the movie? Did they put her back in?

    • William Parcell

      Nope she is officially out of the movie, and chances are we probably won’t see her again since it’s rumored that X-MEN: Apocalypse will focus on the First Class characters

      • Martin Overton

        I have no idea why FOX is so focused on the First Class cast. Because of the way first class was written and the time constraints it placed on itself, it is hard to continue to make movies about this first class. I really don’t want to see first class. Heck most of the members of first class aren’t even X-Men in the movie, at least not the ones they are focusing on. Not to mention, X-Men movies that focus on Magneto as a main character make no sense. First Class did not make that much money nor was it that good of a film. It definitely was a bad rendition of the telling of the X-Men. I guess the studio insists on focusing on the first class cast because of popularity smh (when will it end?).

        • Better than yoooou

          You’re retarded, First Class is by far the best X men film.

    This doesn’t surprise me at all. Probably a scene from the dystopian potential future that was shown in the original comic book story back in 1980, in which Colossus was also killed (alongside future versions of Storm and Wolverine). In that future, EVERYONE basically died; Xavier and a large number of X-Men had been killed by the Sentinels long before the story began (as well as the entirety of the Fantastic Four, The Avengers, Spider-Man, and just about every other superhero in the Marvel Universe). What was left of the mutants was a crippled Magneto, now in a wheelchair just like Xavier used to be, Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Summers (the daughter of alternate versions of Cyclops and Phoenix) and Franklin Richards (the son of Reed and Sue Richards). We see everyone but Kitty and Rachel get killed, while defending Kitty’s unconscious body (Rachel had telepathically linked with Kitty and sent her middle-aged consciousness back to her teenage body, to stop the mutant-led assassination of a U.S. politician that resulted in that dark future coming into existence). It’s very much a time-travel story, and a lot of the ideas from it are similar to the first Terminator film, which would come out 4 years later in 1984. Anyway, I wouldn’t be surprised to see something similar in this film, where the characters featured in the first 3 X-Men films are all killed off in some grandiose manner, and then most of the action is focused on the younger versions of the characters introduced in X-Men First Class trying to erase that future from happening. I also wouldn’t be surprised if the filmmakers took this opportunity to do a reset or ret-con of the X-Men in general, creating a new, alternate “present” timeline which takes the place of the events as they occurred in films 1-3 (in the same vein as J.J. Abrams Star Trek films taking place in an alternate continuity that didn’t have to stick to the story of the original series/films). Anyway, sorry for the long post, most comic books geeks already know this stuff; I just wouldn’t be surprised to see quite a lot of death in this film, but deaths that only take place in one possible future and can potentially be undone.

  • mistaD

    I feel like his death scene was in the trailer, there’s a part were Colossus is apparently “metaling” up and in the background there are explosions and stuff

    • Thomas Carpenter

      Just makes me wonder how a Sentinal is going to kill him in his armored form. Especially since they’re smaller in this movie than in the comics.

  • ItsAnt

    I just wanna SEE the movie so these rumors can stop LOL!

  • amulya

    I’m sure he’s important in comics and stuff, but in the movies I honestly could care less if he’s dead or not lol.

  • William Parcell

    His death, or anyone’s death in this film won’t matter, or at least the ones that happen in the dystopian future won’t. Because once Wolverine and Young Xavier re-set the time stream any character who died in the future will be brought back because that future will never have existed. The only deaths that will matter are the ones that happen in the past and I don’t see them killing and of the First Class cast members.

  • SS1

    Way to go putting a picture of the character in the main story. This showed up on Google. Why have you even bothered warning us of spoilers? Mockery of a site.

      My apologies, normally Google fetches the larger image at the top of our articles when indexing them into their search engine.

      We do our best to prevent spoiling readers who don’t wish to be spoiled, as the title, lede and feature image do not reveal the character in question and include multiple warnings.

  • Liz in CA

    If anyone had ever actually read the two-issue story arc upon which this film is based, several X-men are slain – it’s right on the cover. This isn’t a surprise at all. This is about shifting timelines. I would expect this. Please, ‘journalists,’ at least read the issues before you start talking about this.

    • Liderc

      Please, read the article, it states multiple mutants will be killed in the alternate timeline.

  • Michael Salt Thompkins

    They should kill everyone and start over.
