Deadpool Is Pansexual in Upcoming Solo Film? I’m a Bit Cautious!


Some interesting details came to light during a recent Ryan Reynolds and Tim Miller interview by Collider regarding the upcoming Marvel film Deadpool. The two also talked about Deadpool’s sexuality, and even though it is exciting, I’m still a bit cautious about the whole thing.

When asked about hyper sexualizing Deadpool, director Tim Miller answered that Wade Wilson was indeed pansexual in the film. Reynolds added that more promotional images similar to the fireplace photo will be released soon.

For those of you who might not know, according to our dear friend Google, a pansexual being is defined as:

“Not limited in sexual choice with regard to biological sex, gender, or gender identity.”

If what Miller said is indeed true, then Fox will be introducing its first queer Marvel character on film. That makes Fox a pioneer in not only showing a queer character onscreen, but also giving one their own solo film. The Marvel Cinematic Universe and WB’s DC films better follow suit and bring some much needed diversity too.

I’m cautious regarding Wade’s sexuality, because unless it is stated or shown clearly during the film, most of the audience isn’t going to realize that the he falls under the queer spectrum. There’s a good chance his sexual advancements will be considered a joke.

That’s why fingers crossed that Deadpool shows Wade in situations that make the audience understand that he indeed is pansexual, or at least doesn’t fall under the heterosexual label.

Deadpool will be released on February 12, 2016. It stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character.

What do you think about Deadpool possibly addressing Wade Wilson’s sexuality? Are you looking forward to seeing the film? Let us know!

  1. Interesting. I’ll keep in mind to look for this movie/show. I heard about pansexual, but according to our friend google, I still not get it or it is still beyond my imagination (probably because I have never met a real-life person who claims to be pansexual before which is why I have no idea of how the person will be). By the way, is this a new TV show or a movie? If it is a TV show, what channel? (I still watch it from the internet anyway.)

    1. It’s a movie based on the Marvel comic book character Deadpool and will be part of the X-Men film series franchise.

  2. Oh, I forgot to mention this. Thanks for the information that you share. I really appreciate it. If you don’t, I probably not gonna add it to my wish list to watch.

  3. I know this beyond impossible, but I hope Deadpool kiss Spiderman or Cable on lips
