Ryan Reynolds hopes the Deadpool universe can feature more LGBTQ characters, the actor said during a boisterous, free-wheeling Hall H panel at Comic-Con on Saturday. He’s even hoping that Deadpool and his alter-ego Wade Wilson, a self-described pansexual, will one day explore that side of his sexuality.

“I certainly think that this universe…needs to represent and reflect the world in very real ways,” Reynolds said when asked by a bisexual fan if future Deadpool movies will feature more gay or bi characters. “The great thing about Deadpool is that we’re allowed to do things that other superhero movies don’t necessarily do. It’s something that I’d love to see more of, certainly through Wade, certainly through this universe because it’s something that we’re building out more.”

Reynolds - Query - Fan - Bisexual

Reynolds was responding to a query by a fan, who described herself as bisexual.

“Deadpool 2” boasted one gay character. Negasonic Teenage Warhead, who is depicted in the film as happily involved in a relationship with another woman. Brianna Hildebrand, who plays the role, said she had one demand for producers. She wanted to make sure that they depicted her same-sex relationship “the way it is and not be a big deal.”
