The Deadpool sequel could possibly become more interesting for fans as the Merc with a Mouth might get a boyfriend.
The first movie hit it big in 2016. Not only at the box office but also among fans and critics. Hence, it has earned a nomination at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards under the category of Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.
Now, lead star Ryan Reynolds seems to want to raise the bar for the sequel. Indeed, he has a new angle in mind for his anti-hero character. Although would it be possible for the sequel to feature another romantic interest for Wade Wilson aside from his girlfriend, Vanessa?
Ryan Reynolds Hopeful for Deadpool Boyfriend
Variety recalls how the first movie ended with the couple happily in love. Nonetheless, Reynolds thinks getting his character a boyfriend is a possibility. He credits personal nature of the Merc with a Mouth as being an outsider. Indeed, the anti-hero does have a fondness of flirting with both sexes as earlier shown.
“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,” Reynolds said. Then again, the actor does acknowledge Deadpool’s love for Vanessa. Hence, the chances of a boyfriend might not happen at once.
“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,” Reynolds added.
Talk of Deadpool’s pansexuality emerged early on before the movie’s premiere. At the time, writer Rhett Reese revealed they honored it by means of subtle hints. For instance, the character’s jokes about his relationship with Wolverine. In addition, the Merc with a Mouth mentioned his openness to experimentation during a sex scene with Vanessa, Screen Crush wrote then.
