Will Bladerunner 2049 finally tell us if Deckard is a replicant or not?

No.

You can stop reading now if you want.

For those of you still with me, there's an interview with BLADE RUNNER 2049's director Denis Villeneuve for French Magazine Allocine (via Playlist). When asked about the fact that having an older Harrison Ford cast in the new film seems to prove that Deckard is in fact human, Villeneuve responded:

Not necessarily.

The debate rages on! Even though Ridley Scott has already affirmatively confirmed Deckard was in fact a replicant, stating that the inclusion of the Unicorn scene in the 1992 cut is supposed to hint at that. However, Harrison Ford, in a 2013 AFI interview, said "I thought it was important that the audience be able to have a human representative on screen, somebody that they could have an emotional understanding of."

So what do you guys think? Replicant or not?

Either way, BLADE RUNNER 2049 will be blade running to theaters October 6th, 2017

Harrison Ford played the role human.
Whether Scott always had in mind he was a replicant is debatable, but later cuts of the film certainly suggested as much.
Did Tyrell create him without a limited lifespan and just release him into society to see what happened, or was there a more specific plan behind this? Was Rachael always part of this plan and what's her lifespan? Once you accept Deckard as a replicant, it throws up a hell of a lot of questions. If the sequel addresses some of those it

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Deckard was not a Replicant

.. but Blade Runner Deckard is. It's implied in the theatrical cut, but not even remotely ambiguous in the Director's and Final cuts. It's not even a debate.

I haven't seen but two cuts of the movie (the theatrical and Director's Cut), but I know that both Ford, and Philip K. Dick in his book, did not think Deckard was a replicant. And more to the point, Ford did not PLAY Deckard as a replicant. He was clumsy where Rutger Hauer was eloquent in their final fight. If he was a replicant, he must've been a model that Tyrell hadn't revealed to the public yet. I don't think it's a question that needs answering, because I know there are people who love the
