Ryan Reynolds addresses Deadpool's sexuality: 'He's somewhat fluid'

Deadpool is the kind of dude who's up for anything — no matter what you propose to him, he's game. Maybe that's because he can't die, but even before Ajax triggered his mutation, Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) was still a pretty funny, fun-loving guy. And while he has a paramour, Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), that doesn't mean he's not open to broadening his horizons. 

During a press junket in Spain for the upcoming Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds was posed with a question about whether or not Deadpool is the first mainstream queer superhero. 

“I think Deadpool’s sort of somewhat fluid," he said. "You know, Deadpool’s a guy that there’s a lot of room in that. He’s in love with Vanessa. Vanessa’s the love of his life and that’s a key part of our story and that’s the bedrock of everything that happens to Deadpool. You see he sort of exhibits these qualities throughout the course of each film. He’s a guy that’s sort of unpredictable,” he added.

Josh Brolin, who plays Cable and who was also present at the junket, added in his two cents on the matter:

"It's all offensive," he quipped. "And that's what's so kind of wonderful about the movie. In this kind of politically correct oppression right now, I'm not saying that any of it is wrong or any of it is bad, I'm not making any judgment whatsoever. It's so nice to be able to have a laugh."

Deadpool 2 arrives in theaters Friday.
