* HeReallyCanAct: ''Film/DefinitelyMaybe'' and ''Film/{{Buried}}'' both received positive reviews from critics, particularly about Reynolds' acting. Not to mention his performance in ''Film/SmokinAces'', especially in the final scene.
* HilariousInHindsight: [[Film/GreenLantern Green Lantern]] was married to [[ScarlettJohansson Black Widow]]. So was {{Deadpool}}!
* MisBlamed: For ''Film/GreenLantern'''[='=]s lackluster reception, by none other than the Deadpool fandom. After ''Green Lantern''[='=]s release, many fanboys began bashing Reynolds for his acting and decrying how he 'ruined Green Lantern' and will most certainly ruin Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds' acting is one of the few things fans and critics liked in the film. You'd think they wouldn't need to worry considering Reynolds has been previously praised for being perfect for Deadpool, but apparently some people have short memories.
