Is there any actor in the world with such a wicked, self-deprecating sense of humour as Ryan Reynolds? The Hollywood actor is a great combination of good looks and funny bones, as he continues to entertain us both on and off screen. While the actor has been part of quite a few popular blockbusters, his most popular role is indubitably Deadpool in the X-Men franchise. It was a role that Reynolds was born to play.

And yet, the beginning was terrible, as he made his debut as Wade Wilson in X-Men: Origins - Wolverine, something every X-Men want to forget. Including Reynolds himself. Persisting with being a superhero, Ryan tried his luck with another franchise, playing Green Lantern for DC. That turned out to be even more terrible.
But thanks to a test footage that went viral, Ryan Reynolds got another chance to play Deadpool, that too as the main lead. The rest is blockbuster history, as both the Deadpool films were not only hits with the fans and also earned big bucks, despite the R-Rating.
