Ryan Reynolds would like Deadpool to have a boyfriend in the sequel

Ryan Reynolds stars in Deadpool

If you’ve seen Deadpool, you’ll know that there’s one love interest in the film and that’s his girlfriend.

While the character is intended to be pansexual, which is shown in him being open to sexual experimentation and suggesting a mock fling with Wolverine, that’s pretty much it.

But there are plans for a sequel, and star Ryan Reynolds wants one thing for the next installment.

At a screening in New York, he said he ‘loved’ that the character is pansexual.

‘I love that he can break any boundary,’ he said. ‘In the future, I hope we get to do that more.’

On getting a male love interest, he said: ‘I certainly wouldn’t be the guy standing in the way of that. That would be great.’

Producer Simon Kinberg said the filmmakers wanted to honor the character’s sexuality in the first movie and were definitely open to showing Deadpool with a boyfriend in a future installment.

‘We did in subtle ways, there’s veiled references to it in this film,’ he said. ‘It’s in the DNA of the character.’
