Director David Leitch is about to follow up his breakout film, John Wick, with the already acclaimed female spy action thriller Atomic Blonde, and then he'll be jumping into the X-Men movie universe with Deadpool 2.
As such, X-Men movie fans have had a lot of questions about how the Deadpool sequel will be crafted, and what kind of story it will tell. The inclusion of characters like Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz) is a big deal, but this being Deadpool, there's also another - stranger - issue that fans seem obsessed with:
Will we see "Pansexual Deadpool" in the movies?
When talking with Leitch about Atomic Blonde, Huffington Post asked about the possibility of Pansexual Deadpool in the next movie(s), and got this response:
"Everything in the Deadpool world is possible. It's such a crazy universe to play in, but I can't comment about where we're gonna go. That's what's fun about Deadpool, you really don't know and you're willing to ask these questions about him. I think that, right there, says it all. How often do you have a character where you could even have these discussions?"
In the comics, ol' Deadpool is down for just about anything when it comes to the sex department. Men, women, mutants, gods, aliens, unicorns - it's all fair game. Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool demonstrated a strong sense of "sexual adventure" with Morena Baccarin's Vanessa - so it wouldn't be too surprising to see Wade expand his sexual repertoire in the sequel.
In the past, Ryan Reynolds has said, "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."

Ryan Reynolds will return as Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth. For the sequel, he'll be joined by Josh Brolin as Cable. Cable was co-created by Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and Louise Simonson. He has often been paired with Deadpool as his grim, serious demeanor serves as the perfect foil to Deadpool's crude and zany humor. The duo headlined an ongoing comic book series, Cable & Deadpool, for 50 issues.
Atlanta star Zazie Beetz has also been cast in Deadpool 2. She will play Domino, a mutant with probability manipulation abilities that endows her with improbably good luck. In the Marvel Comics Universe, Domino was a member of Cable's mercenary crew, Six Pack, and one of his early love interests.
Jack Kesy has been cast in an undisclosed villain role, speculated to be Black Tom Cassidy. Shioli Kutsuna has also joined the production in an undisclosed "key" role.prev
