Ryan Reynolds suggests new bisexual direction for future Deadpool films

Ryan Reynolds has suggested that he wants to explore the possibility of featuring more LGBTQ characters in future Deadpool films.

Deadpool, a film that already pushes the boundaries of the superhero genre, became a huge success due to the cult fandom that surrounds it.

The film features main character Wade Wilson who is self-described as pansexual and, to date, only features one gay character in Negasonic Teenage Warhead. According to Variety, Reynolds was asked a question by a fan who described herself as bisexual while talking at the Hall H panel during Comic-Con.

The fan asked Reynolds if the Deadpool films have any intentions of including more bi or gay characters in the future, to which he replied: “I certainly think that this universe needs to represent and reflect the world in very real ways.

“The great thing about Deadpool is that we’re allowed to do things that other superhero movies don’t necessarily do. It’s something that I’d love to see more of, certainly through Wade, certainly through this universe because it’s something that we’re building out more.”
