I'm not a huge Deadpool so none of this news bothers me either way and at this point Reynolds or not my expectations are not high in the least.

I actually liked him in Safe House with Denzel even though he didn't do anything exceptional.

He's still winning at life though. He's rich, famous, was once married to Scarlett, and now he's with Blake Lively. Why does he need to muck up these superhero movies? I feel like he still gets less hate than Ben Affleck who actually made a turn around since Daredevil and won a Best Picture Oscar for a movie he produced. Ryan Reynolds has had a bad streak for the last decade.
I agree with the people who say this is his last chance. I hope it ends up being good, because I don't want to sit through another Blade Trinity or Green Lantern.
I think he likes them and just embraces them no matter how much they suck or he might suck in them. Plus it's a check. He might have got his fill of romcoms.
It's similar to Evans cuz he was doing a whole bunch of that superhero/sci-fi stuff that all weren't that good or he wasn't that good in them but it landed him Johnny Torch and that led to Cap.
Maybe Reynolds should do more sci-fi stuff it don't work out with Deadpool.
