Ryan Reynolds Wants Deadpool To Be Bisexual As Much As We Do

In case you were wondering, apparently, Ryan Reynolds wants Deadpool to be queer just as much as we do...

According to Marvel insider Daniel Richtmanas reported in a post by the We Got This Covered blog, the 44-year-old heartthrob and action star is pushing for Deadpool's bisexuality to be explored in the forthcoming third installment of the popular, foul-mouthed antihero's film franchise. 

The first two Deadpool were distributed by 20th Century Fox, but after Fox's merger with Disney, the R-Rated hero now has a new home at Marvel Studios, and with that new home comes new possibilities, the likes of which include showcasing an explicitly queer hero on the big screen. 

"The Canadian star is said to 'very much want' to explore this side of the character," reports We Got This Covered, who also write that Reynolds has purportedly asked Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, to "make Deadpool openly bi." 

This isn't the first time Ryan has spoken up about wanting Deadpool's queerness (he's actually pansexual in the comics) to shine through in his big-screen movies! 

After Deadpool 2 featured Marvel's first explicitly queer superheroes with Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Yumiko, Ryan was asked about the possibility of adding even more queer characters in upcoming Deadpool sequels during a panel at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2018, and he gave a great answer.

"I certainly think that this universe...needs to represent and reflect the real world in very real ways, so yeah," said Reynolds, according to Variety. "The great thing about Deadpool is that we’re allowed to do things that other superhero movies don’t necessarily do, and that is probably one of them."

So what are you waiting for Marvel?!?! If even both the fans AND the star want the main character of a popular movie franchise to be queer, you gotta give the people what they want! Until then, it looks like we'll just be patiently waiting...
