Ryan Reynolds Comes Clean About What Superhero He Really Wanted To Play

Published

Rare are the actors in Hollywood who are even allowed to play a superhero in both DC and Marvel movies. Normally, never the twain shall meet. However, when you have the acting chops, charisma and overall talent of Ryan Reynolds, all rules go out the window. Such was the case when the beloved actor portrayed both Green Lantern and Deadpool.

Although, we can’t help but wonder what the world would be like with a Ryan Reynolds version of The Flash. Also, who would have the comedic cajones to fill the hysterical red shoes as the new Deadpool? Lucky for us, we’ll never have to live in a universe without Ryan playing everybody’s favorite foul-mouthed hero!
