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 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 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.”

Reynolds came to San Diego to hawk blu-rays of “Deadpool 2,” specifically an extended cut that features scenes of the Merc with a Mouth contemplating killing baby Hitler and urging Wolverine (a sweat-streaked Hugh Jackman) to team up with our spandexed hero at some point in the future.

“Deadpool” is a major movie franchise, having made over $1.5 billion worldwide, but before donning the tight-fitting red outfit, Reynolds had an unfortunate run in comic book films. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” featured a much more straight-laced version of Deadpool, and “Green Lantern,” a big-budget DC film, flopped. Both were critically derided. Reynolds said that the two films were good experiences professionally, but acknowledged that “they are both pretty bad.”

On the bright side, however, he said, the films provided a “wellspring of awesome jokes” for the meta-humor that characterizes the Deadpool films.

“Deadpool,” a very R-rated take on the superhero genre, was a difficult proposition for Fox, the studio behind the film. It only got a greenlight because geek fandom demanded it.

The first film, Reynolds said, was made because of the people at Comic-Con. The second, he joked, was the result of “corporate greed and a splash of destiny.”

Ryan Reynolds may be the picture of confidence onscreen, but once the camera turns off the actor says he’s often a nervous wreck.

The actor, 41, opens up about his longtime battle with anxiety in a new interview with The New York Times.

“I have anxiety. I’ve always had anxiety,” he says. “Both in the lighthearted ‘I’m anxious about this’ kind of thing, and I’ve been to the depths of the darker end of the spectrum, which is not fun.”

During the early days of his career, Reynolds says he would often stay awake at night paralyzed by fear about his future.

Calling his early 20s a “real unhinged phase,” the actor admits he self-medicated to ease his anxiety.

“I was partying and just trying to make myself vanish in some way,” he says.

As his career began to take off, Reynolds toned down the partying but he says the anxiety never went away. To this day, he still gets wracked by dread and nausea before interviews and talk show appearances.

The actor is busy promoting the sequel to his highly successful 2016 film Deadpool. And with the upcoming film already breaking ticket presale records, the sequel is expected to be another hit — something that makes Reynolds a bit nervous.

“When there’s built-in expectation,” he says, “your brain always processes that as danger.”

So how does he cope with his anxiety? Reynolds, who is known for his quick wit, says he uses humor as a defense and coping mechanism.

“When the curtain opens, I turn on this knucklehead, and he kind of takes over and goes away again once I walk off set,” he explains. “That’s that great self-defense mechanism. I figure if you’re going to jump off a cliff, you might as well fly.”

Reynolds previously opened up about his battle with anxiety, revealing he had a mental breakdown after wrapping Deadpool.

“I went to go see a doctor because I felt like I was suffering from a neurological problem or something,” Reynolds told GQ. “And every doctor I saw said, ‘You have anxiety.’ ”

Remember that Australia’s Day message from Ryan as “Deadpool”? In the video, Ryan said “You gave us Wolverine. And for that, I can’t forgive you. I’ve got no problems with Hugh. I mean, he’s a delightful guy. A true legend. But that movie, that was a career-low for me.” Apparently, Yahoo caught up with Hugh while he was promoting his movie at Sundance and asked what he thought about it.

“Love it. It’s just brilliant. I mean, I love Ryan, he’s a good mate of mine. He’s so fantastic.”

 

But does he think Wolverine would be able to take down Deadpool?

“A hundred percent.”

 

Yahoo also asked if he ever considers reprising his role as ‘Wolverine’ in “Deadpool 2” (fyi, nothing has been confirmed on this. The reporter was simply fishing.)

“I’ve never thought about it till now, but doing something with Ryan – he’s awesome – that’s always attractive to me. But I think you’ve probably got several other people lined up to play [Wolverine],”

Would love to see Ryan and Hugh sharing the big screen again. They seemed to have loads of fun while filming “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”.

Here is another promo clip from Ryan as “Deadpool” discussing the importance of early cancer detection for the UK testicular cancer awareness charity Ball Boys (not quite what you expected from the title, eh?)

Ryan covers the March issue of Men’s Health in which he opens up about raising baby James out of the spotlight, the recent passing of his dad and how Deadpool helped him grieve. The issue will be available on the Apple iTunes Newsstand starting February 2nd, and on newsstands everywhere soon after that. Be sure to pick up a copy but otherwise, we will have scans from the magazine as soon as it becomes available.

Men’s Health March cover guy Ryan Reynolds is a different kind of mega-star: He exudes normality.

If there’s any ego there, it’s well concealed. Reynolds, who stars in the highly anticipated superhero action film, “Deadpool,” (out February 12), opens up to Men’s Health about the lessons learned from and final moments he shared with his dad (“I learned discipline from my father. Not in terms of corporal punishment, but being determined in whatever you do”), how fatherhood has changed him, and the new realities of physical fitness as he approaches 40—namely, warming up.

“I never did stuff like that back in my 20s, but I’m that guy now,” he says. “I’m the guy doing calisthenics. I’m doing jumping jacks and deep knee bends. I work out like a British person.”

More than a funny guy, Ryan Reynolds is one of the most successful actors in the world. Click for four rules he lives by.

The Hollywood Reporter estimated “Deadpool” to be on course for a $55 million-plus debut next month. The Fox and Marvel film came on tracking Thursday, three weeks before it opens over the long Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend. Deadpool rolls out Feb. 12 opposite comedies Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single.

Those with access to prerelease services say the scores are strong for Deadpool among both males and females (as of now, it is the first choice among females). One service even has Deadpool crossing $60 million, and that’s before Fox makes its major marketing push.

The four-day Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend has become a lucrative frame for moviegoing. Last year, Fifty Shades of Grey debuted to a dazzling $93 million while Kingsman: The Secret Service launched to $41.8 million over the four days.

Tracking shows Paramount’s Zoolander 2, directed by and starring Ben Stiller opposite Owen Wilson, looking to gross north of $20 million, but those estimates could easily see an uptick in the coming days. That would place the comedy ahead of New Line’s How to Be Single, a female-skewing rom-com starring Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie and Leslie Mann.

Ryan is making the rounds with the world premiere of “Deadpool” and before the movie premiere in Taiwan, Ryan impressed fans with his knowledge of Chinese culture and a limited Chinese vocabulary. I don’t speak Chinese but thankfully Focus Taiwan did the translation for us and wrote a report on his friendly approach to fans in his social network. There is also a clip of his airport arrival at the end of this post if you’d like to take a look (of course you do!).

If Ryan Reynolds’ reception in Taiwan is anything to go by, bantering with fans works, especially if it is done in the local language. The Canadian movie star arrived in Taiwan Wednesday to promote his latest movie, “Deadpool.”

Taking several steps further than other Hollywood stars who try to greet local fans in Chinese when in Taiwan, Reynolds showed his knowledge of some the latest news events in the country, much to the pleasant surprise of the locals.

In a Facebook post, Reynolds announced jokingly — in Chinese — that he wants to apply to become the lead singer of ChthoniC, Taiwan’s best-known death metal band. On Jan. 16, the band’s lead vocalist, Freddy Lim (林昶佐), won a seat in the legislative elections to become a member of Taiwan’s next Legislative Yuan. In response to news about the Reynolds post, band leader and bass player Doris Yeh reportedly said: “We can only hire him.”

In another post in Chinese, Reynolds played on the Chinese character “菜, tsai,” which means poor-quality, saying: “Fans in Taiwan, I’m your cup of tea even though I speak poor Chinese (菜中文, tsai zhong wen).” The pun was not lost on the Taiwanese, who sometimes make fun of the name of President-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文). The three characters of her name sound like “poor English,” although she speaks good English, having been educated in the United States and the United Kingdom.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Deadpool” has been denied permission to screen in China due to its violence, nudity and graphic language. A source close to the decision at China Film Group tells THR that the reports are indeed accurate.

China’s censorship authorities often work with Hollywood studios to create special cleaned-up cuts of R-rated movies, but sources close to the Deadpool decision say it wasn’t possible to excise the offending material without causing plot problems. China has no ratings system, so the country’s media regulator, the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT), makes an up-down judgment on all film imports, approving or banning them for consumption by Chinese viewers of all ages.

Despite the film’s more adult tone and content, many observers had predicted that Deadpool would find a way into the China market, thanks to the Marvel imprimatur.
