Every Upcoming Ryan Reynolds Movie

Ryan Reynolds has a busy slate of upcoming movies. From his best to his worst movies, Ryan Reynolds consistently entertains. Though he’s taken on more serious roles in movies like The Amityville Horror, Reynolds is best known both on- and off-screen as a comedic presence, as well as a romantic lead. He was already a notable name before playing the lead role in 2016’s Deadpool, but the hugely successful release of that movie — along with Reynolds’ talent for social media and viral marketing — has made him one of Hollywood’s most popular stars today.

After the release of Deadpool 2 in 2018, the superhero franchise was effectively put on pause due to Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. Since then, Reynolds has voiced an adorable miniature sleuth in Detective Pikachu, starred in the Netflix action-comedy Red Notice, and even appeared in the music video for Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down.”


There are still several Ryan Reynolds movies scheduled to be released over the next couple of years, so there are plenty more of his films for fans to look forward to. Here is every movie Ryan Reynolds has coming up, including a Christmas Carol-inspired musical.

The Adam Project (2022)

After Red Notice, Ryan Reynolds’ next Netflix project is a time travel movie directed by Free Guy‘s Shawn Levy. Previously untitled, The Adam Project follows a man who goes back in time to aid his 13-year-old self. The film is now in post-production and is scheduled to begin streaming on Netflix at some point in 2022. The Adam Project also stars Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, and Catherine Keener.

Spirited (2022)

The musical Spirited is one of the more intriguing future projects on Reynolds’ schedule is a live-action adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, which was acquired by Apple in October 2019. Reynolds will produce alongside Will Ferrell, and Sean Anders and John Morris are attached to direct. Spirited is a retelling of the classic tale and also stars Octavia Spencer, Ferrell, and Sunita Mani. Spirited is currently in post-production and should release in late 2022.

Futha Mucka (TBD)

The animated short series Futha Mucka stars the voice talents of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. It was announced in 2020 for Quibi, but the streaming service has since been shuttered, though it’s possible Futha Mucka will live on to release as a Roku Original at some point soon.

Everyday Parenting Tips (TBD)

The upcoming Ryan Reynolds movie Everyday Parenting Tips is a comedy based on a New Yorker article. Reynolds will play a dad struggling to raise his kids in a world that has been taken over by monsters. Paul King is set to direct the film, which is currently in pre-production.

Deadpool 3 (TBD)

The sequel Deadpool 3 was in limbo for a bit, but the Ryan Reynolds movie is now officially in the works. The two previous Deadpool movies have a combined box office total of almost $1.5 billion, so making another sequel makes a lot of sense. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin are set to write the film, with Reynolds reprising his role as the title character. The Deadpool 3 movie is currently in development, although a release date has not been revealed.

Dragon’s Lair (2022)

The iconic Dragon’s Lair — an arcade game created by Rick Dyer and Don Bluth — is getting adapted by Netflix with Reynolds to star. Originally released in 1983, Dragon’s Lair was known for its superior graphics, rapid-fire, choice-based game-play, and infamous difficulty. The Netflix adaptation will follow the heroic knight who is trying to rescue a princess from an evil dragon and a wizard. Don Bluth and Gary Goldman are set to direct Dragon’s Lair, which is expected to release on Netflix sometime in 2022.

Clue (TBD)

Ryan Reynolds is set to star in another upcoming game adaptation: Clue. Based on the popular board game, the Reynolds movie is the second such adaptation, following the 1985 cult classic movie. The Muppets director James Bobin is directing, with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman attached to star. The film is currently in pre-production status and doesn’t have a release date yet.

Imaginary Friends (2023)

Starring alongside John Krasinski, who is set to write and direct Imaginary Friends, Ryan Reynolds will play a man who can interact with other people’s, well, imaginary friends. The film is listed as a 2023 release, though there hasn’t been much news about it since it was first announced in late 2019.
