Deadpool 2 Creators Talk About Adding LGBT Couple Into The Movie

While Deadpool 2 will make history by becoming one of the highest grossing R rated films of all time, it will also be remembered for another milestone too.

This is because the film includes the first queer superhero couple put on the big screen.

If you have seen the movie, you'll know that the character of Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) gets herself her own girlfriend in the form of Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna).

During an interview with Yahoo, director David Leitch and writer Paul Wernick talked about the addition of the couple.

Leitch pretty much said that the addition of a queer couple in Deadpool 2 is not a statement they are trying to make. He never really thought about it in that fashion.

Wernick chimed in more about the topic claiming that it shouldn't be regarded as something huge or surprising. He said "It’s everyday life.

We ground Deadpool in real life. As outrageous as it is, Deadpool is a very, very grounded movie.”

It sounds like being LBGT is no longer a "big" thing as it's just something that happens normally in today's modern society.

Films are always a reflection of society at the time and being LBGT is just an ordinary thing now.

Deadpool 2 is released right now in North America and it's on track to become one of the biggest movies of 2018. It's tracking to gross more money at the Box Office compared to the first movie that came out in February 2016.
