Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool will be the first queer superhero film

Ryan Reynolds stars in Deadpool

In the comics, Marvel’s anti-hero Deadpool is a pansexual flirt that will get with literally anyone.


And with Ryan Reynolds starring in the upcoming film of the character, both the actor and film’s director Tim Miller have revealed that the superhero’s sexuality will be definitely still fluid.

Speaking to Collider, Miller and Reynolds responded to the ‘tantalizing fireside photo’ that was released to tease the film.


‘Does this mean it will be a very hypersexualized Deadpool?’ the site asked.

‘Pansexual!’ Miller replied. ‘I want that quoted. Pansexual Deadpool.’

Reynolds added: ‘There is some sexuality in this movie for sure. You kinda think you have moments when you’re shooting where you think, “This is, uh, a little excessive. This is a comic book movie. Are we gonna get away with this?”

‘But so far so good. Studio hasn’t crushed us with anything. They were here yesterday, they were thrilled, they saw some cut footage and so far so good.’

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Deadpool. In X Men Origins: Wolverine, Reynolds also stars and does decent flirting with some men in an elevator:

Deadpool is scheduled for release on 12 February. Here’s the trailer:
