‘Deadpool’: Ryan Reynolds Is Open For Wade Wilson To Be Bisexual

deadpoolIn the first installment of Deadpool, we saw the relationship between Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) and Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) as one of the main storylines. While the two got reunited in the end of the film, it appears that there is a possibility of Wade being a member of the LGBT community. In a recent interview with Variety, Reynolds spoke about the idea of having Wade being potentially bisexual.

“What love is to Deadpool may not be what love is to Batman or someone else. I think that could be played up more. He’s an outsider in every way, shape, and form.”

In other news related to the Merc with a Mouth, it was recently reported that the sequel is possibly starting production this June in Vancouver, Canada. In addition, Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones expressed that she would love to play Wade’s sidekick in the second installment. Would you be interested to see Wade Wilson have a boyfriend in future installments? Sound off in the comments below.

“Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a former Special Forces operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when evil scientist Ajax (Ed Skrein) tortures, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool. The rogue experiment leaves Deadpool with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor. With help from mutant allies Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Deadpool uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.”

Deadpool is out on Blu-Ray/DVD as well as purchasable through Digital Download. The sequel, directed by David Leitch, is reportedly eyed for a 2018 release.

    It won’t happen. I certainly would not be against it, but Deadpool is too important to Fox, and they are not going to take a chance on alienating a significant part of their potential audience. If we are going to see any gay or lesbian characters in a superhero movie, it will be more obscure characters. DC seems to be more progressive in this area, so maybe they would have Midnighter and Apollo show up in a Justice League film at some point.

      I totally agree with you. Just like you I have no problem with that. But I do not think Fox goes that far. We do not know the projects of the Fox but Deadpool has become an important character for them so the risks they will take will be much more calculated than for the first film. I hope all the same that they will leave a margin of freedom to this team whose the configuration is different with the departure of Miller.
      I really would like some news about the production of deadpool 2 coming to us (cast, some info on the script and direction that the film will take, official date of production and release of the film). I hope they will not wait for Logan (so that deadpool does not become the subject of conversation at the expense of Logan) to give us some news. Personally I am very excited to see Logan.
