Welcome to Ryan Reynolds Online. We are one of the largest and most comprehensive fansites dedicated to the most amazing actor, Ryan Reynolds. You might know Ryan from 'Two Guys and Girl and a Pizza Place" and his upcoming movie "The Green Lantern". We have a large gallery filled with thousands of photos of the man himself.

Since Ryan is currently travelling around promoting his new movie Safe House he has been asked about the rumoured Deadpool movie which fans have been talking about since the release of X-Men Origins – Wolverine.
In a recent interview Ryan has hinted that the script is in place, it has nothing to do with Wolverine and the movie will be R-rated.
IGN also asked Reynolds about a sequel to Green Lantern, which he answered by saying “no idea”, before explaining things such as budgets to the interviewer. Which seems a polite way of saying that the film made a little over its budget back and wasn’t that well received, so don’t hold your breath on that one, either.
Ryan Reynolds has revealed that he feared his acting career was over after he accidentally gave his ‘Safe House’ co-star Denzel Washington a black-eye during a fight scene. The two actors were scrapping in a moving car when Reynolds made contact with the Philadelphia star’s face.
“Ryan gave me a black eye. There’s a scene where I reach over to try and choke him where I have my handcuffs on and we were flying around in the car. He wasn’t actually driving the car but it just happened – as I was reaching forward he was flying back. He went, pow!” a website has quoted Washington as saying.
“I never had a black eye in my life but I can’t say that anymore!” he said.
Following the incident, the 35-year-old actor admits he thought he would be asked to leave the set and the film.
“That was my early retirement… It was weird to feel my face on fire,” he added.
Ryan Reynolds and Reese Witherspoon are set to play artists Margaret and Walter Keane in new movie ‘Big Eyes’.
The pair became famous in the 1950s and 60s after their paintings of large-eyed kids were one of the first mass marketed art sensations at the time.
The film will be produced by Tim Burton.
According to reports, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski have written the script for the motion picture, which is set to start filming this spring – years after having an idea for the project.
“We are ecstatic to have this dream cast for our dream project,” a website has quoted the pair as saying in a statement.
“Walter is a larger-than-life antihero – charming, funny, dangerous, and a little crazy. Ryan will knock it out of the park. As for Reese, she will be perfect as Margaret – soulful, decent, transforming from vulnerability to learning to fight for herself,” the statement read.
When Margaret and Walter split they ended up in court, as she tried to get her share of the credit after he had claimed to be the genius behind the work.
They were given an easel each and told to prove themselves, which resulted in Margaret’s ability being clear to see.
Ed Wood is set to direct the movie, while Lynette Howell and Jamie Patricof will assist Burton in producing through their new company Electric City Entertainment.
If a picture is worth a thousand words this one speaks volumes.
A photo of actor Ryan Reynolds and his Gossip Girl, Blake Lively, has surfaced on the Internet, providing a behind-the-scenes shot of the couple celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends.
The picture of the lovebirds was posted online by a person known only as ‘dtheman24′ who was using the iPhone app Instagram.
The mystery person added the caption: ‘Thanksgiving dinner table! Johnson’s [sic] and Livelys.’
The snap was taken last month at the Johnson Mill Bed and Breakfast in Utah, which is owned by Lively’s sister Robyn, and her husband, actor Bart Johnson.
The two couples are shown sitting at the table, on the side nearest the wall.
Johnson, 40, who appeared in the High School Musical films, is the third from the left. He is sitting next to his wife Robyn, who is next to the 24-year-old Gossip Girl star.
Reynolds, 35, is sitting on the other side of his girlfriend – his co-star in the Green Lantern.
The Hollywood couple were spotted kissing each other in Utah that weekend.
Johnson’s mother Charlene runs the bed and breakfast full-time but he owns it despite living in Los Angeles with his wife and three children.
The photograph of the celebrity couples surrounded by family and friends is a grainy one but it clearly shows a relaxed Lively and Reynolds.
The Canadian actor divorced actress Scarlett Johansson earlier this year, while his blonde girlfriend had a summer fling with J Edgar star Leonardo DiCaprio.
Ryan Reynolds looks hot on the movie poster for his latest film, Safe House.
The new poster for the sexy Ryan Reynolds’ thriller Safe House has fans drooling. The Universal Studios picture is sure to be an exciting ride: It chronicles Reynolds as a rookie CIA agent working alongside rogue CIA operative Denzel Washington when their safe house in South Africa is attacked.
While the first poster didn’t even show Ryan Reynolds, the latest promotional poster for Safe House certainly does (pictured right). The film is directed by relative unknown Daniel Espinosa, and marks his U.S. movie debut. It also stars Up in the Air and The Departed actress Vera Farmiga and Academy Award nominee Sam Shepard.
2012 is gearing up to be a big year for the handsome 35-year-old Reynolds. Ryan Reynolds spent this past Thanksgiving with gorgeous girlfriend, Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, and her family in Utah. Lively and Reynolds then traveled to Ryan’s native Vancouver to spend Christmas and New Year’s with his family. It certainly looks like things are getting serious for the genetically blessed couple.
People magazine reports Lively has also been spending a serious amount of time in Boston where Reynolds is filming another action movie, R.I.P.D., which is scheduled for release in 2013.
Ryan ended his marriage to actress Scarlett Johansson in 2010 after just two years. Reynolds was briefly linked to Sandra Bullock back in January 2011, prior to getting cozy with Blake in October 2011. Ryan was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in November 2010.
Check out the trailer for Safe House below. The film is slated for release on Feb. 10, 2012.
X-MEN spin-off Deadpool is likely to go into production in 2012 with Ryan Reynolds still attached to star in the project, The Geek Files has learned.
In what is exciting news for X-Men fans, those involved with the 20th Century Fox project are hopeful that Deadpool will film this year. In addition, we’ve heard that Hugh Jackman’s second solo mutant adventure, The Wolverine, will definitely go into production in 2012.
Fan favourite Deadpool, the name used by smart-mouth mercenary Wade Wilson, was introduced in X-Men Origins: Wolverine with Reynolds in the role but the new film will reboot the concept so it’s far closer to the comics. There has been talk that the script even sees Deadpool poking fun at his initial big-screen appearance, which will be portrayed as a work of fiction that isn’t part of the film’s own reality.
Check out this interview Ryan did with MTV, talking about his character in The Green Lantern.
“When we meet Hal Jordan, he’s a cocky, sarcastic, arrogant type of guy and he’s given this extraordinary gift,” Reynolds told MTV News at CinemaCon recently. “Rather than [have] that amplify those character traits, he’s in fact humbled by it and given purpose in his life, which is what he lacked.”
Audiences won’t have to wait too long before Jordan undergoes that transformation. “We’re into it [early],” Reynolds said. “It’s an accelerated process. You don’t really want the movie to start in the third act.”
Jordan isn’t the only character who will experience a full-scale reinvention. In the new movie, Sinestro (Mark Strong) is a faithful member of the Green Lantern Corps that Jordan joins. But as DC Comics fans know, Sinestro will eventually take a dark turn — one that will be hinted at in the film.
“You definitely feel it. But he’s an ally in this film,” Reynolds said. He added about Jordan’s relationship with Sinestro, “I would say it’s contentious. Humans are looked down upon by a lot of the Green Lanterns — they’re kind of a sub-species.”
Deadline reports that 20th Century Fox has hired Tim Miller to direct Deadpool. Who is Tim Miller, you may ask? A first time director, he’s spent most of his career as a visual effects artist, most notably on X-Men and X2: X-Men United. A spin-off from X-Men Origins: Wolverine (though the project smartly distances itself from that film), Deadpool is a cancer -stricken mercenary with zero conscience and who never shuts up, earning him the nickname “The Merc With The Mouth.” A subject of medical experiments, Deadpool’s greatest tool – other than being quite handy with guns and swords – is the fact that he is nearly impossible to kill due to regenerative powers.
While some may be a bit hesitant to be happy about a first time director on a project like this, I am absolutely ecstatic. The Wernick/Reece script is impeccably structured and could be visual dynamite, meaning that if Miller works off the page and adds in his own tricks, the film could be brilliant. The only concern that I have is that Fox hired Miller because they know they can control every move he makes, meaning that we may not get the Deadpool movie we all want and deserve. But before we get worried about all of that, let’s just see the damn thing go into production.
Heres a small update on the Deadpool movie. It looks like its still a possibility! The following is from Empire
As for Deadpool, the movie which will reintroduce Ryan Reynolds as the wise-cracking mercenary who was given such short shrift in Wolverine, Donner confessed that it would be “a total reboot. We’re either going to pretend that didn’t happen, or mock it, which he could do.”
No director has yet hopped on board Deadpool, although the film has been offered to the likes of Robert Rodriguez in the past. “We’re looking for a director, yes,” said Donner who, mindful of Reynolds’ ever-growing logjam of work, added that the film would shoot in the next year or so. “He’s very involved, Ryan. He’s working with the writers on the screenplay and it is as much as it is ours.”
And Donner also confirmed that this would be the Deadpool of the comics, and not the mute mutant we saw in last time around, right down to Deadpool’s scarred face. “I’m tellin’ ya, it’s true to the comic,” she laughed. “You’ll see all of them. You’ll see Wade Wilson, the good-looking Ryan Reynolds! You’ll see Deadpool in his costume and you’ll see the cancer-scarred face.”
Ryan Reynolds isn’t just playing Green Lantern in a movie, he’s also writing about the character for the introduction to “Green Lantern: Secret Origin,” a re-release of the 2008 series that examined the start of Hal Jordan’s superhero career.
The full introduction is posted at ComicBookMovie.com, and in about 500 words, Reynolds describes his history with Hal, and admits that he wasn’t an expert on the character until recently. all that changed, however, when talk of a film came up.
“About a year and a half ago, I first sat down with Martin Campbell, Donald DeLine, and a man whom I consider responsible for the resurgent interest in Green Lantern, Geoff Johns,” writes Reynolds. “They were all eager to build a big screen superhero who would both live up to his lengthy legacy, yet simultaneously find a foothold with a whole new audience–young and old alike.”
“Hal Jordan was about to become a living, breathing person. And I was going to be the guy to do it,” he continues. “No pressure…”
Reynolds gives credit to the book for helping him delve into the character. He even says it was “the introduction [he] was looking for.” So now he’s giving back by writing his own introduction to the book for readers.
Written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Ivan Reis, “Green Lantern: Secret Origin” is being re-released on April 12, just under two months before the “Green Lantern” movie is released on June 17.
Ryan Reynolds already played the role of Wade “Deadpool” Wilson in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” though most comics fans — including Reynolds — agree that it wasn’t the best translation of the character to the live-action world.
A solo “Deadpool” movie has been in development for some time now, and though Reynolds has been busy lately with “Green Lantern,” he revealed that all is not lost for fans of Marvel’s Merc With The Mouth.
“‘Deadpool’ is still in the works,” he said in an interview with Empire. “I’m not sure how logistically it works in terms of scheduling, but yeah, I want it to happen.”
Those “logistics” are indeed a big problem for Reynolds right now. He’s a hot commodity in Hollywood these days, with “Green Lantern” due in June, summer romantic comedy “The Change-Up” due in August, and upcoming work on a “Green Lantern” sequel and an adaptation of Dark Horse’s “R.I.P.D.” comic book series.
That’s not to say Reynolds is worried about crossing the streams with regards to his comic book work, though.
“Those two universes are completely different,” he said of the Marvel and DC franchises specifically. “Superhero movies are so pervasive in pop culture, I don’t look at them as superhero roles as much as just roles. … They’re such different people. Deadpool is about a guy in a highly militarized shame spiral, Green Lantern is more universally themed.” Source
Just received this press release, which confirms that Green Lantern, based on the DC Comic book will headline this year’s MCM Expo in London in May:
MCM Group are delighted to announce that much-anticipated action-adventure Green Lantern will be the official title sponsor of the next MCM Expo, which takes place at ExCel London on 27-29 May.
Now in its tenth year, MCM Expo is London’s comic con, covering movies, comics, games, anime, television and more. The UK’s premier gathering for all things pop culture, the show is the ideal venue to showcase such a highly anticipated movie with roots in comic books.
Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, along with Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard and Mark Strong, and is directed by Martin Campbell (GoldenEye, Casino Royale). The upcoming Warner Bros release, based on the popular and long-running series from DC Comics, is due to hit UK cinemas in June.
As part of MCM Expo, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will also be showcasing the upcoming Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters videogame, due for release on all formats in the summer.
“We are absolutely delighted that Green Lantern is title sponsor of May’s MCM Expo,” commented show co-organiser Bryan Cooney. “If ever a movie was tailor-made to appeal to our 50,000+ visitors it is Green Lantern, so we’re thrilled that the London MCM Expo is to play a key role in Warner Bros.’ launch of the film and videogame.”
Ever since it debuted at Sundance in 2010 audiences have been clamoring to see “Buried” the buzz-heavy buried alive thriller starring budding superstar Ryan Reynolds. More than a year later the film arrived on DVD with so little fanfare that many film fans may not have even known it was there. How did Lionsgate, the company that produced and distributed “Buried” manage to screw up the release of this unbelievably good movie? I will tell you how; it’s your fault.
Ryan Reynolds stars as Paul Conroy a truck driver working for a civilian contractor in Iraq. Though we never actually see the attack we eventually learn that Paul was driving near the end of a convoy delivering supplies when it was attacked. Paul was knocked unconscious and now finds himself awake buried in wooden box somewhere in the desert.
That is the set up of “Buried;” the execution involves a cellphone, a lighter and Ryan Reynolds’s considerable talent for fearful breathing, screaming and general freaking out. Director Rogrigo Garcia puts us in the box with Reynolds and the feeling as shockingly claustrophobia inducing considering that we can just turn off the DVD and walk away.
As the camera roams around as if making room for Paul to squirm around us, his fellow captives, we squirm and breath shallow breaths and desperately hope whatever oxygen is left will be enough. We leap when the cellphone he’s been given in order to arrange ransom rings and we feel every bit of Paul’s rage at the series of functionaries and fools who attempt to placate and pacify the buried man.
Most of all we feel Paul’s anguish as calls to his wife go unanswered and a call to his mother offers the saddest of all results. The harsh voice of the kidnapper is a muffled, thickly accented growl that offers no hope of reprieve even if outrageous demands of millions of dollars are met. Any outward sound, explosions or even the sound of the Muslim call to prayer, somehow heard through the dirt offer as much hope as terror.
Buried is a triumph of a cinematic technique from the ways in which Garcia induces claustrophobia within the audience through classic film techniques in lighting and editing to the exceptional makeup and especially the well measured terror of star Ryan Reynolds who shakes off all of his natural charm to expose a man in pure terror and what that experience might be like for anyone.
So, why did “Buried” bomb so badly? It’s our fault. As filmgoers we say we want different and challenging movies and we talk a good game about wanting to see “Buried” as the buzz was building but when it comes along we tend toward avoiding it. Take for instance another much more famous claustrophobic experience in fear, Best Picture nominee “127 Hours.” Despite near universal acclaim and Oscar nominations audiences have stayed away and the film has barely broken a meager 20 million dollars at the box office.
The makers of “Buried” pushed the film out to a few theaters and while critics raved, audiences stayed away and sought more familiar and safer movies. For heavens sake “Piranha 3D” made more than both “Buried” and “127 Hours” combined in its first week at the box office! This is your fault!
Never mind that “Buried” has more honest terror in 10 minutes of it’s 95 minute runtime than a million “Piranha 3D’s” or “Hostel’s” or whatever other garbage Eli Roth types slap their name on, Americans want their movies dumb and ugly not exceptionally crafted and truly terrifying. That’s why “Buried” is languishing in obscurity on Netflix and gathering dust in Redbox’s across the country. It’s YOUR FAULT!
You can make up for your lack of taste however. Rent “Buried” today. Give some love to a movie that deserves it and will pay it back with a movie watching experience more honest and compelling than anything you have seen other than maybe “127 Hours” or maybe a handful of other film’s released in the last year.
