Ryan Reynolds has a plan for the whole town of Wrexham
“So if you can find a way to interconnect these two and raise them both up simultaneously, it’s an amazing and profound effect and a win win for everybody. “
His plan comes as he and co-owner, Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Rob McElhenney, have begun a two-year documentary about their attempt to turn the National League team, the world’s third oldest professional side, into a “global force”.
And Ryan, 44, knows more about turning the tables than Wrexham FC.
His career low came when he played that other superhero in the 2011’s widely-panned Green Lantern.
Speaking on Jason Bateman and Will Arnett’s SmartLess podcast, Ryan recalls an awkward encounter with its third host, Will and Grace star and co-host Sean Hayes.
They had bumped into each other as Sean was on the way to see Green Lantern in the cinema.
“I said, ‘Don’t do it! Save yourself the tickets – I will hand you $12 and free popcorn’,” laughs Ryan. “At the time it really hurt. I felt like I let people down.”

So how did all this enlightenment come to Mr Deadpool? “By grinding up 45 self help books and snorting it like the biggest line of coke you’ve ever seen,” he jokes. “My meditation technique is to make a silent… scream.”
Let’s hope he’ll soon hear cheering from the terraces instead.
