Ryan Reynolds is a Canadian actor and film producer.


The code word to snap Deadpool out of his hypnotized state was "Ryan Reynolds".[1]

At the Crucible, when Deadpool's name was selected for a mission, General Ross asked Deadpool what he wanted to do, and Deadpool immediately suggests they abduct Ryan Reynolds - presumably in retaliation for his role in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie.[2]

  • Deadpool refers to his appearance as "Ryan Reynolds crossed with a shar-pei". This quote brought the character to the attention of Reynolds himself,[3] who would eventually portray the character in both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Deadpool. In the comic, Ryan Reynolds' name is misspelled as "Ryan Renolds."
