When you think of Ryan Reynolds, you probably think of his hilarious Twitter presence and Deadpool.
You probably don't think of a bleach-blond Reynolds in a superman costume, right?
Yeah. It exists.
I randomly selected a movie called “Paper Man” on Amazon Prime. I have so many questions for @VancityReynolds. https://t.co/YNMgB1E42t— Lance Ulanoff (@Lance Ulanoff)1586397167.0
Paper Man, which came out circa 2010, is:
"...A comedic drama about an unlikely friendship between Richard, a failed middle-aged novelist who has never quite grown up and Abby, a 17-year-old girl whose role in a family tragedy years earlier has stolen away her youth. Richard has moved to a Long Island beach community for the winter season in order to overcome his writer's block."
The movie also stars Jeff Daniels, Emma Stone, and Lisa Kudrow. Ryan Reynolds stars as a character called "Captain Excellent."
But just like Wikipedia cannot fully explain Captain Excellent's role in the story, Reynolds cannot explain anything about the movie.

Of course, the bleach-blond hair has recently become a lockdown trend amongst men.
So perhaps Reynolds was just getting a decade head start.

But just like Ryan, we have no answers.
In 2010, the world was a very different place.
You can get Paper Man here.
