We Now Know What The Movie-Version Deadpool's Sexuality Is

'Deadpool' director Tim Miller reveals what the antihero identifies as.

The highly-anticipated movie "Deadpool," slated for a Feb. 12, 2016 release, is making headlines lately. Star Ryan Reynolds merc'd out with his Deadpool costume on Halloween — which was then revealed to have been one epic movie teaser.

More recently, the director of "Deadpool," Tim Miller, announced the Merc with a Mouth will be pansexual. When asked, "Can you talk about the tantalizing fireside photo that you guys put out. Does this mean it will be a very hypersexualized Deadpool?," Miller told Collider, "Pansexual! I want that quoted. Pansexual Deadpool."

Reynolds went on to add, "There is some sexuality in this movie for sure. You kinda think you have moments when you’re shooting where you think, 'This is, uh, a little excessive. This is a comic book movie. Are we gonna get away with this?' But so far so good. Studio hasn’t crushed us with anything."

For those of you who aren't sure what pansexuality is, GLAAD defines it as: "Being attracted to all gender identities, or attracted to people regardless of gender."

  • Interestingly, Marvel comic writer Gerry Duggan, who's written several Deadpool stories, announced in 2013 the antihero was omnisexual.
  • However, the co-creator of Deadpool, Fabian Nicieza, gave a different view on his character's sexuality.

Either way, we're stoked for the film and can't wait to see Reynolds in action. Oh, and if you still haven't seen the red band trailer, what are you doing with your life?
