THE INFAMOUS Deadpool will make his return to our screens in just a few weeks time, with fans all over the globe eagerly-anticipating the latest instalment .

Played by Wrexham AFC co-chairman Ryan Reynolds, the character has become one of Marvel Studios' most well-loved figures over the years.

Deadpool and Wolverine (played Hugh Jackman) is due to hit cinema screens from July 25.

After a six-year wait, fans can brace themselves for yet another hilarious comic book comedy in what is the third Deadpool film.

Join Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman as they team up to combat a mutual enemy and save the multiverse. 


Ahead of that though, we've taken a look at five films featuring Ryan that you could watch ahead of the movie's release (aside from the obvious of Deadpool and Deadpool 2!).

Mississippi Grind (2015)

Rated 91% on Rotten Tomatoes

Synopsis: Down on his luck and facing financial hardship, Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) teams up with younger charismatic poker player, Curtis (Ryan Reynolds), in an attempt to change his luck. The two set off on a road trip through the South with visions of winning back what's been lost.

Critics say: "Well-acted and steeped in Southern atmosphere, Mississippi Grind is a road movie and addiction drama that transcends each of its well-worn genres."

Buried (2010)

Rated 87% on Rotten Tomatoes

Synopsis: Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is a U.S. truck driver working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone, it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

Critics say: "Wringing a seemingly impossible amount of gripping drama out of its claustrophobic premise, Buried is a nerve-wracking showcase for Ryan Reynolds' talent."

Free Guy (2021)

Rated 80% on Rotten Tomatoes

Synopsis: When Guy (Ryan Reynolds), a bank teller, learns that he is a non-player character in a bloodthirsty, open-world video game, he goes on to become the hero of the story and takes the responsibility of saving the world.

Critics say: "Combining a clever concept, sweet, self-aware humour, and a charming cast, Free Guy is frivolous fun."

The Voices (2014)

Rated 74% on Rotten Tomatoes

Synopsis: A likable guy pursues his office crush with help from his evil talking pets, but things turn sinister when she stands him up for a date.

Critics say: "The Voices gives Ryan Reynolds an opportunity to deliver a highlight-reel performance -- and offers an off-kilter treat for fans of black comedies."

Life (2017)

Rated 68% on Rotten Tomatoes

Synopsis: Astronauts (Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds) aboard the International Space Station are on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As members of the crew conduct their research, the rapidly evolving life-form proves far more intelligent and terrifying than anyone could have imagined.

Critics say: "Life is just thrilling, well-acted, and capably filmed enough to overcome an overall inability to add new wrinkles to the trapped-in-space genre."
