One of the movies all of us comic book nerds are waiting to see is “Deadpool”. And if you are a comic book nerd you know that Ryan Reynolds will be portraying the insane, sometime superhero. The film is being shot in Vancouver, British Columbia where Reynolds was born. Well, on Friday April 10th Reynolds was walking through an underground parking garage when he was struck by a car driven by a paparazzi photographer who fled the scene. Reynolds was not injured. Maybe playing an invincible superhero has rubbed off on him.
Since the “Deadpool” movie is still shooting, the production company as well as Mr. Reynolds are lucky the accident wasn’t more serious. It could have been an incident where production could have been delayed or where Ryan had to be replaced or where the production had to shut down all together. Reynolds actually first portrayed the role of Deadpool in the 2009 movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”. Also if the accident had been more serious it could have had an adverse affect on his family. He and his wife, Blake Lively just had their first child. A little girl they named, James.
Reynolds seems to be taking the incident all in stride. He jokingly tweeted back to a buddy Dan Newlin, who asked how he was doing, that he would call if the network would put the show “Beachcombers” back on the air. The Show run from 1972 to 1990.
