Is Deckard a Replicant? Apparently, yes.

The age old Blade Runner debate has finally been put to rest. Is Deckard a Replicant? Apparently, according to Ridley Scott who directed the original film, yes Deckard is in fact a Replicant! 

Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts shared on Twitter that Ridley Scott himself told him that Deckard is indeed a Replicant:

Of course this bold statement was challenged by some on the Twittersphere, but despite the skeptisism, Vogt-Roberts remained adamant that what he said was in fact true:

Blade Runner 2049 has been in theaters since October 6th and has yet to cross the $100 million dollar mark, even after factoring in international ticket sales (as of the posting of this article). By all accounts, 2049 failed to capture the interest of most moviegoers and unfortunately failed to generate a decent return at the box office. Many fans praise the film for its philosophical depth and nostalgia, but many more moviegoers complained about the length of the film as well as its pacing.

In time, Blade Runner 2049 will likely be regarded as a cult classic like the original however. We expect home release sales to compensate somewhat of the lost box office revenue. Some films, like Blade Runner and Alien take time to grow on people. It's just unfortunate they lack the initial impact to secure more of a franchise building experience for those who do enjoy these films right off the bat.

Do you buy that Deckard is a Replicant? What did you think of Blade Runner 2049? Let us know below!

 Was this not obvious? Gaff's 4th wall breaking was pretty obvious. He said that he thought Deckard was retired (in Hungarian) and that he had a problem with his eyes (all replicants in the 1st BR had that brown circle in their eyes, so did he in a quick gaze).

Doesn't seem right. He lacked the strength of replicants, especially if he is supposed to be a Nexus-6 version. And the character wasn't even a replicant in the original book, he was human, and he shows born-emotion unlike other replicants.

Would firmly say he is not.

Theory is that deckard and rachel were nexus 7.  Possible made foreachother to meet and procreate. I think only two of n7 were made.

That theory as the most ridiculous thing in the whole movie. If they were for them to breed why make him a blade runner and risk dying in the process several times? Why make an experiment where Tyrell himself dies?

Chris, Ridley Scott has said that Deckard's a Replicant many times over the years.

Here's a video of him saying it from over 10 years ago, lol.
