Ryan Reynolds Spoke with US Variety magazine about the possibility of expanding on Deadpool’s sexual orientation said he was happy to delve into this aspect of his character, if it didn’t compromise the storyline they’d previously created featuring Wade’s girlfriend Vanessa!
“The only thing that you have to consider going forward is, ‘Are we being faithful to the canon that we nurtured and created?’” “One of those things is that Deadpool is in love with Vanessa. Deadpool isn’t in love with Vanessa just because she’s a woman. He’s in love with Vanessa because he loves her.”
Talking about Deadpool’s ability to create a more diverse romantic storyline for the comic book universe Reynolds said:
“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.”
Screenwriter, Rhett Reese said:
“Most comic book heroes have been heterosexual or homosexual. We find that interesting and groundbreaking. I hope it can evolve into something a little more.”
Until then the superhero most likely to shake things up is Wonder Woman, who comic book writer Greg Rucka confirmed as bisexual last year!
