There are roles that seem to be born just for a specific actor. As Robert Downey Jr is the only Iron Man, Hugh Jackman is forever Wolverine. And Deadpool can only be Ryan Reynolds.
Instead of choosing a business path like a parent or imitating the two brothers in the police industry, the youngest son of the Reynolds family chose to pursue an acting career when he was only 15 years old. Owning a handsome face and an ideal height of 1m88, it is not difficult for Canadian guy Ryan Reynolds to be noticed by Hollywood soon and give many opportunities on screen. But only with Deadpool can people see what is the pinnacle of Ryan’s career where talent and passion intersect.
Ryan Reynolds Before Deadpool
Although very hard to participate in many different types of roles, from comedy – action, horror to romance, but after more than 20 years of artistic activity, Ryan Reynolds has not really made a breakthrough. Even with a series of starring works such as Safe House, R.I.P.D, Self / less and especially “disaster” superhero Green Lantern (2011).
Things only really changed when Deadpool achieved great success in 2016.
In 2004, Ryan Reynolds fell in love with “Deadpool” when he happened to see a comic book with a scene of the mutant spitting at his own photograph. During Blade: Trinity (2004), directors David Goyer and Ryan Reynolds discussed the idea of making a movie for Deadpool together. The project is shelved but Ryan Reynolds is still passionate about the character.
In 2009, Ryan Reynolds first had the opportunity to express the image of Deadpool in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But when he sealed his mouth, Deadpool was no longer Deadpool. Ryan’s failure to play Deadpool lies in the overall failure of the entire film.
Despite being busy with a series of private projects after that, Ryan Reynolds kept on dreaming of the “Deadpool dream”. Also in 2009, he and screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick completed the rough script of the red-shirt mutant’s own film, but Fox ignored it.
Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool (2016)
In 2014, Ryan Reynolds ventured a sample video of Deadpool on social media. The excitement of the audience contributed to make Ryan’s burning desire come true in 2016.
Deadpool is a very famous anti-hero character in Marvel comics. With a muddy, apple-like personality, who likes to swear with the superpower of “break the 4th wall” (the term for the ability of a character to chat, talk to the audience, even realize that he is a personality) fictional character), the mercenary Wade Wilson / Deadpool is a very unique superhero model.
But to bring Deadpool to the screen in the most honest and charming way is not simple.
The film grossed $ 783.1 million (while the budget was only $ 58 million) with sobbing praise from both critics and the public. It even received two Golden Globe nominations. It can be said that Deadpool has “saved” the career of an amateur from the country of maple leaves.
“Deadpool is very feminine. At least that’s the way I see him.” – Ryan shared in Variety’s article on January 3, 2017.
Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2 (2018)
This is the 10th installment in the X-Men series, and the sequel to the 2016 film Deadpool. In the film, Reynolds transforms into Wade Wilson / Deadpool, a smart warrior with the ability to recover. But he suffers serious bodily injury after undergoing a test of biological mutation. He is the founder of X-force, a group of protective mutants, to protect young mutant boy Russell.
Throughout this movie on the family theme, he threw many humous shades: from the satirical comic book companies DC and Marvel to the immortal monuments of popular culture.
Deadpool 2 became the most successful X-Men universe film with $ 785 million, surpassing Deadpool with $ 783 million worldwide. X-Men: Days of Future Past ranked third with nearly 748 million dollars.
Ryan’s co-star, actor Josh Brolin likened him to another acting legend: “He’s like the comedian Daniel Day-Lewis of comedians. And I’m a 50-year-old guy who makes fun of him all the time.”
