This is something, which Ryan Reynolds deserves after struggling in the film industry for a long time. At one point there were even hints that this might be the end of the career for Reynolds. After he was launched in the movie Green Lantern, the movie was a big disappointment. Further, no sequels or spin-offs were made. He was completely left out of the industry. Even his other movies like Safe House, The Change Up and R.I.P.D. fell flat at the box office. Then Deadpool was released, which turned everything for him and made Ryan Reynolds EWs Entertainer of 2016.
