Ryan Reynolds's Hollywood domination may have been a long time in the making but his recent success in the record-breaking, box office-busting Deadpool has firmly cemented this adorable, endlessly witty, devilishly-handsome super-dad on the star circuit. And we couldn't be happier about it.

This also means, of course, that he now has the ability to be picky about the movies he stars in and is probably the reason why each one of his three upcoming films all sound pretty damn awesome:

1. 'The Hitman's Bodyguard'

Partnering up with an absolutely bangin' cast that includes Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek and Daredevil's Élodie Yung, Ryan Reynolds plays the world's top protection agent in the action-comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard. The story follows Reynolds and his new client, the hitman (Jackson), and considering they both come to the field carrying totally opposite agendas — decimate and protect — they hate each other. Regardless, they're now pinned side by side with 24 hours to get from England to the Hague with only a murderous Eastern European dictator (Oldman) standing in their way.

They had me at the cast line-up, tbh. Get in my face immediately.

Release date: 18 August 2017

2. 'Deadpool 2'

I know right? You're probably wondering whose balls he had to fondle to get a second movie — but who TF cares? It's coming and we could not be more excited to see Reynolds return as the Merc with a Mouth.

The movie was green-lit earlier this year and while we don't know much about the plot as of yet, we can happily chow down on chimichangas until that point — and, as 20th Century Fox has announced that October 6, 2017 and March 2, 2018 are set in stone for Marvel movies, it's most likely 2 will hit theaters on one of those days.

Release date: June 2018

3. 'X-Force'

Is one as Deadpool/Wade Wilson movie not enough for you? Then how about two — 'cause that's what you're getting! After many back-and-forths, the X-Force movie is finally in the works and, according to reports released in February this year, Reynolds is not only starring but he'll be co-writing the script with director Joe Carnahan! And you know what that means, don't you? It means it's going to be bloody hilarious.

Well, there you have it guys, three upcoming roles featuring Reynolds that, if I'm honest, all sound awesome!


Which one are you most excited for?
