Coronavirus: Ryan Reynolds to don Deadpool suit and enact plots of upcoming films as fan asks him to spread joy
The coronavirus pandemic has left the world in a grip of fear. With flights canceled and production of shows and films stalled or postponed indefinitely, things look pretty bleak right now. We could all use a laugh right now and some fans have been wondering whether Ryan Reynolds will step up to bring some cheer. Reynolds, as everyone knows, always brings joy online as well as offline with his tongue-in-cheek posts and hilariously snarky replies.
With many theatrical releases facing possible postponement, a fan tweeted hoping that Reynolds would enact the plots of the upcoming films, as his character Deadpool. Deadpool is known to take potshots at famous pop culture icons. The fan tweeted, "In lieu of theatrical releases, @VancityReynolds will re-enact the plots of upcoming movies as #Deadpool on Youtube."
To which Reynolds responded, "I would totally do this."
This brought on a flood of requests from fans. One tweeted, "Please do this. Please. With the bad hand this stupid virus has dealt us, this would be just the perfect dose of the best medicine & really add a little light & laughs in the darkness."
"I want him to reenact midsommar, and hereditary tbh if it hasn't been done yet, (sic)" wrote a hopeful fan. Another wrote, "You really need too. It looks like everyone is going to be home and bored. (sic)"
"This would be the best thing ever," another excited fan wrote.
Reynolds is known for his snarkiness and his social media feeds are always a joy to read. The 'Deadpool' actor always pokes sly fun at his wife, Blake Lively, in his posts and interviews. Don't worry, she doesn't take it lying down either and hits back just as playfully each time.
It would be great fun to watch Reynolds as Deadpool take on upcoming films.
