We must believe that Ryan Reynolds felt that he was seen too much in the poster in recent years … Indeed, the Canadian actor announced on social networks that he would take a little sabbatical, far from the film sets. Joke or not?
Ryan Reynolds: a golden career
It’s been a while since Ryan Reynolds got used to showing his face in theaters for one or two annual productions. It must be said that the 44-year-old actor revealed itself very early on via the small screen in the 90s. He thus appears in series such asBeyond the Real: The Adventure Continues, X-Files: At the frontiers of reality or even A roof for three (for which he obtains the main role).
In the 2000s, he took over the big screen by increasing the number of comedies and action films. We remember appearances noticed in American Party: Van Wilder PR, Blade: Trinity, Cellular, Mi $ e prizes or even Proposal. However, while most of his films are well received commercially, he still lacks a level to cross. And it’s not his mixed performance in Green Lantern and X-Men Origins: Wolverine who will say the opposite. However, this last film will paradoxically change his career completely, sincehe plays the anti-hero Deadpool for the first time.
Indeed, in 2012, it was announced that Ryan Reynolds would reprise the role of the mercenary in a solo film. The actor will then get involved like never before to give the best possible adaptation of the most eccentric Marvel character ever. Dead Pool then released in 2016, and achieved enormous critical and commercial success. A success that will further extend the already established notoriety of Ryan Reynolds. Clearly there will be a before and an after Deadpool, for him.
Sabbatical leave in sight
While in recent years, it was solicited from all sides (Deadpool 2, Detective Pikachu, Hitman & Bodyguard, Fast & Furious: Hobbs and Shaw), Ryan Reynolds now wants to slow down. Thus, it is during his last shots on the film set Spirited (planned on Apple TV +) that the actor made his announcement on social networks.
In the caption of the photo (in which he stands alongside Will Ferrell with whom he shares the poster), Reynolds wrote this:
This is the end of my shots on the set of Spirited. Not sure that I would have been ready to accept a film which presented so much challenge three years ago. Now is the perfect time to take a little sabbatical away from the movies. Singing, dancing and playing in a sandbox with Will Ferrell made my dreams come true. And this is my second collaboration with the great Octavia Spencer. It’s the perfect timing to take a little sabbatical away from the movies. I will miss working with such talented designers and artists.
The news of the actor, it is true, has been very busy in recent months. We remind you that in this year 2021, Ryan Reynolds was showing in two important films: Hitman & Bodyguard 2 and Free Guy, which has worked very well in the United States. The actor is also expected to meet alongside Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot for the film. Red Notice, which will be available on Netflix from November 12. The actor is therefore very far from having been idle.
Are you bluffing, Martoni?
Obviously, the first questions arise, following this announcement of withdrawal from Ryan Reynolds. The first, which is obvious: what will happen to the franchise Dead Pool ? We know that since FOX went under the Disney banner, the anti-hero now belongs to Mickey’s house. a Dead Pool 3 is also planned, with Ryan Reynolds who would play the main role again. Could this break call everything into question?
Second question: is the actor bluffing? We know that since he took on the Deadpool costume, Ryan Reynolds has become a prodigy humorous posts and hoaxes on social media. We remember, for example, his fake letter written by a Deadpool fan, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the film’s release. It is not forbidden that the terms “sabbatical leave” and “break” do not have the same meaning when they come out of the mouth of a troublemaker like him.
His wife Blake Lively, in any case, reacted to this announcement, not without humor. So, as usual, she trolled her husband on social networks by stating that:
Michael Caine did it first.
A hilarious nod to rumors of the 88-year-old British actor’s retirement. Nevertheless, this…
