In 2015, Marvel's R-rated Deadpool became a surprise box office juggernaut, meaning more adult-oriented superhero movies could, in fact, succeed. Between the killer soundtrack, tons of naked Ryan Reynolds, and a hint about the inclusion of Cable, it has become quite clear that the sequel will have a lot to live up to. Of course, we've gotten plenty of details about Deadpool 2, but one question hasn't quite been answered: will the hero's pansexuality become more explicit with the second go-round? We may have gotten an answer, thanks to a new Variety interview with Reynolds. Oh, and there's even a hint of many more movies to come.

We still don't have a release date for Deadpool 2, but we know it is gearing up for production in the near future. At the moment, given what happened at the end of the first Deadpool, it looks like Wade Wilson will be carrying on happily with his girlfriend Vanessa (played by Morena Baccarin). But that could change in a big way. In the "Deadpool might eventually get a boyfriend" kind of way.
Ryan Reynolds recently did a fairly lengthy and in-depth interview with Variety, and the subject of where Deadpool is going in the future came up. In the comics, Wade Wilson is rather flirtatious and goes both ways, as it were, having the distinction of being Marvel's first pansexual hero. As far as having Wade Wilson wind up with a guy on-screen, Ryan Reynolds is very open to the idea. Here is what he had to say about it. »
When we last saw Deadpool in the 20th Century Fox tentpole last spring, he was happily in love with his girlfriend Vanessa (played by Morena Baccarin). But as Marvel’s first pansexual superhero, known to flirt with both men and women, star Ryan Reynolds isn’t counting out a boyfriend for his spandex-wearing superhero in future “Deadpool” installments.
“What love is to Deadpool may not be what love is to Batman or someone else,” Reynolds tells Variety in this week’s cover story. “I think that could be played up more. He’s an outsider in every way, shape, and form.”
Hollywood has been nervous about introducing same-sex couplings in superhero movies, out of fear that major tentpoles could alienate audiences in countries less tolerant of gay rights. “That’s not really a problem for us, because we were banned in China,” Reynolds notes. »

Ryan Reynolds spent 11 years thinking about what it would feel like to walk in Deadpool’s shoes. So when he finally got to don the red Spandex suit, he’d already worked out the character: His underdog Marvel superhero wouldn’t have Superman’s steely strut but instead would walk with a bounce. “Deadpool is so feminine,” the actor says over soup at a hotel in Bel-Air. “At least in how I saw him.”
The trouble was that the stunt doubles had a hard time dropping the macho swagger. “I’d say, ‘When you land, can you sashay away?’” Reynolds laughs.
This week, Reynolds’ special gait will be on full display on the red carpet of the Golden Globes. “Deadpool” is the first live-action comic-book movie to score a best-picture nomination in the organization’s 74-year-history, competing in the musical/comedy category. And Reynolds is in the running as a best actor nominee, »
