The Baltimore Comic-Con is pleased announce the addition of Colossus from Marvel’s Deadpool, Stefan Kapicic as a guest of the show.

Stefan Kapicic has played more than 70 roles in theatre, film, and television. However, he is best known for his role as the iconic X-Men character Colossus, in the record-breaking Marvel/Fox feature film Deadpool directed by Tim Miller and starring Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool was an instant Marvel fan-favorite, making it the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time. He’s currently reprising his role of Colossus in a highly-anticipated sequel of this powerful franchise. Deadpool 2 is scheduled for release on June 1, 2018.

He has also finished filming a new hit show Counterpart for Starz with Academy Award winner J.K. Simmons, Olivia Williams, and Stephen Rea. Kapicic plays mysterious ex-special agent Lieber on the show. Counterpart is set to premiere in January 2018 on Starz.

Kapicic was born in Cologne, Germany. He studied at one of the most respected drama schools in Europe, Academy of Dramatic Arts. He made his feature film debut in 2003 with Almost Totally Ordinary Story. His breakout role was awarded “Best Debutant” at the Nish Film Festival 2003. Feature film castings and offers immediately followed his successful debut. He went on to star in films such as: The Cordon by Goran Markovic, Street Walker by K. Djordjevic, Free Fall by V. Djukelic, Tears for Sale by Uros Stojanovic and produced by Luc Besson, One Shot by Robert Orhel, Lost Prince by Tom Rukavina, We Will be World Champions by Darko Bajic, and The Brothers Bloom by Star Wars director Rian Johnson, starring Oscar-winners Adrien Brody and Rachel Weisz. He also co-starred in the Universal feature film Big Miracle with Drew Barrymore, Kristin Bell, and John Krasinski for director Ken Kwapis.

He has also seen much success on the small screen. His television credits include guest- starring in David Mamet’s The Unit and Ridley Scott’s Numb3rs, Fox’s 24 and NBC’s The Event, European shows Ordinary PeopleI, Che GuevaraVratice Se RodeLarin IzborAndrija & AndjelkaStella, and Zora Dubrovacka.

His theatre credits include National Theatre’s Hasanaga’s Wife directed by award-winning director Jagos Markovic, in which critics described his performance as “astonishing”, and shortly after, his theatre career took off. After he completed his studies, he went on to star in 50 plays, including Merchant of Venice by W. Shakespeare, Electra by Euripides, Brothers Karamazov by F.M. Dostojevsky directed by one of Europe’s most famous directors, Tomaz Pandur, Death by Woody Allen, Prometheus by Euripides, Resurrection Blues by Arthur Miller, A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, ParasitesSkup, and Phone Booth. He starred in the theater performance of Romeo & Juliet at the internationally-recognised Dubrovnik Summer Festival.

The 6’4″ tall Kapicic speaks 9 languages and is great with swords, horse riding, shooting, and other physical skills.

“What a great late addition to the 2017 show!” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Stefan has a fantastic resume in general, but I thought his characterization of Colossus in Deadpool was hilarious. I cannot wait to see what they pull together for the sequel!”
