Actor Ryan Reynolds has expressed his desire to explore Deadpool and his alter-ego Wade Wilson’s pansexual side in the future projects.
During a panel at the 2018 Comic-Con International: San Diego, the actor said he hopes the Deadpool universe can feature more LGBTQ characters.
“I certainly think that this universe needs to represent and reflect the world in very real ways,” Reynolds said when asked by a bisexual fan if future Deadpool movies will feature more gay or bi characters.
“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,” he added.
Deadpool 2 featured one gay character. Negasonic Teenage Warhead, who is depicted in the film as happily in a relationship with another woman.
Brianna Hildebrand, who essays the role, said she want producers of the movie to make sure that they depicted her same-sex relationship “the way it is and not be a big deal.
