It seems that barely a week goes by these days without a new Ryan Reynolds movie getting announced, as the 43 year-old looks to emulate his close friend Dwayne Johnson by becoming the busiest actor in the business. The former gin magnate appears to have developed a close working relationship with Netflix, and the majority of the most recent projects he’s signed on for have been for the streaming service.
The bad news for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that every time the Deadpool star adds something else onto his already packed schedule, the Merc with a Mouth’s debut in the world’s biggest and most popular franchise gets that little bit further away. Many of Reynolds’ upcoming titles have made a lot more progress than Deadpool 3, and unless Kevin Feige and his team start making some serious moves, it could be years before the irreverent assassin graces our screens once again.

Unless Ryan Reynolds plans on working flat-out for the next few years and starting on his next project as soon as he finishes the most recent one, it seems highly unlikely that every single one of these movies will be making it to the big or small screen in short order, but you still have to admire his work ethic for even contemplating the idea of juggling thirteen films at the same time.
