According to the film's director, Tim Miller, Deadpool's sexual orientation is 'pansexual'.
Q. Can you talk about the tantalizing fireside photo that you guys put out. Does this mean it will be a very hypersexualized
Miller: Pansexual! I want that quoted. Pansexual Deadpool.

This was confirmed by the film's producer, Simon Kinsberg
"Well I think your audience has seen from the materials so far the
goal is to be as true as possible to the essence of the Deadpool
canon. The character, as you know, identifies as pansexual in the
comics, and while we don't explore it in depth in this film, it's
definitely alluded to. Mainly in this movie we cover his love story
with Vanessa from the comics, but it's certainly something that we
could go deeper into in future movies and it has presence in this

The character's co-creator, Fabian Nicieza also backs this up.
He is NO sex and ALL sexes. He is yours and everyone else’s. So not
dismissive, but rather the epitome of inclusive.
DP brain cells are in CONSTANT FLUX. He can be gay one minute, hetero
the next, etc. ALL ARE VALID.
Funny how you don’t understand the character at all regardless of his
(or your) perceived sexuality. It is why he is insane, why his memory
is so flawed, and why he was able to survive the cancer in his system.
It is why he can like something one minute and hate it the next. It
has ALWAYS been a part of the character’s makeup. You’re arguing with
the guy who introduced the omnisexual, pansexual, heterosexual,
homosexual, etc. aspects of the character!

There have been clues that the sequel movie may see Deadpool with a boyfriend.
“I love that about Deadpool,” said Reynolds. “I love that he can break
any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more,” he said,
alluding to his character’s monogamous relationship with a woman
(“Gotham” star Morena Baccarin).
Reynolds added that he thought it would be “nice” for Deadpool to have
a boyfriend at some point. “I certainly wouldn’t be the guy standing
in the way of that,” Reynolds said. “That would be great.”
There are clues in “Deadpool” that its hero is just as interested in
men as he is in women, but they are often handled with a wink rather
than occupying a major plot line. Early in the movie, Deadpool
suggests a mock fling with Wolverine and seems open to sexual
experimentation during a sex montage (although the only partner in the
scene is his girlfriend). “We knew that was part of the comics,” said
one of the film’s screenwriters, Rhett Reese. “We wanted to honor that
in the movie. But we did it in subtle ways.” Added producer Simon
Kinberg: “There’s veiled references to it in this film. It’s in the
DNA of the character.” Kinberg said he wouldn’t rule out showing
Deadpool with a male companion in future installments.
