The one question that everyone has wondered in ‘Blade Runner’ is if Harrison Ford’s Deckard was a replicant or not. During the panel for ‘Blade Runner 2049‘ at San Diego Comic-Con the famed actor answered that particular question in an interesting way that will surely promote tons of new theories as to what he meant before the film’s October release.
Ridley Scott has previously said that “it will be revealed [in the sequel], one way or the other” and also stated in a round about way that his original plan was for Deckard to be a Replicant. This is something that Ford has previously spoken out against so when asked the question at Comic-Con and he stated:
“It doesn’t matter what I think. The original film explored the ethics and utility of replicants, and we further develop those themes in the story. But I’m not going to tell you anything about it.
As Ford will often say exactly what he thinks this is either a bit of misdirection or he is miffed that he ended up being a Replicant and didn’t want to be one. Fans and those with a theory will really have no idea how it plays out until this October, but the idea that he was a newer form of Replicant or that all of human civilization had actually died out and ended up as Replicants could still prove to be true.
Do you think Harrison Ford was just vague to avoid giving away a spoiler or is he angry that his character ended up as a synthetic lifeform? Share your thoughts below!
