Ryan Reynolds says he wants his character, Deadpool, to have a boyfriend in a possible sequel, according to Variety.
In the film Deadpool, who is canonically pansexual in the comics, is hinted to be interested in men and women. He suggests a fling with fellow Marvel comic book character Wolverine. Later, he also appears open to sexual experimentation during a sex montage in the film.
Reynolds says he wouldn’t mind exploring Deadpool’s attraction to men. During the red carpet for the film on Monday, Reynolds was asked about the unconventional superhero’s pansexual identity.
“I love that about Deadpool,” Reynolds says. “I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more.”
Reynolds was also asked if he would like Deadpool to have a boyfriend in a future film.
“I certainly wouldn’t be the guy standing in the way of that,” Reynolds says. “That would be great.”
“Deadpool” set the record for an R-rated preview by raking in $12.4 million during its preview opening on Thursday, according to Deadline. The film opens nationwide on Friday.
