Ryan Reynolds on the similarities between ‘Welcome To Wrexham’ and ‘Deadpool’

Ryan Reynolds bought Wrexham A.F.C. with Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator, actor, and producer Rob McElhenney even before meeting him. In the upcoming FX, docuseries Welcome to Wrexham, their journey with the team and town will be chronicled. The series will premiere with two episodes on Wednesday, August 24 at 10 p.m. ET, streaming the following day on Hulu.

A series of subsequent episodes will follow through at the beginning of October. Their goal was to help the fifth-tier club get promoted to a better league using their resources. Trying to raise the status of the Red Dragons, the third oldest pro soccer team in the world would prove to be a daunting task.

Reynolds and McElhenney had to part with some personnel to bring in new and improved players. It was alleged that one of these moves included a hefty price tag for a player with scoring ability. Upon being asked, jokingly, if the player’s one-year contract was greater or lesser than the budget for his upcoming Marvel Studios film Deadpool 3, Ryan’s response was interesting.

During a Zoom video promoting Welcome to Wrexham, Reynolds joked, “Well, you have to take that up with Kevin Feige.” According to Reynolds, Deadpool 1’s budget was simply 58 cents and spit. I think it’s interesting that you even bring it up because there is a tangible parallel there, which is that I think great things happen when constraints are present.

The most common reason for a lack of creativity, in my opinion, is due to a lack of time and money. When you’re trying to create a National League operation with a club like Wrexham, you have to take a sustainable approach.”You don’t want to set a scale that’s just obscene, but rather, you want to develop a team that you can keep and sustain over time.

Our goal is to create a sort of model there. We similarly viewed Deadpool. When the studio took away money that we needed for our budget, we turned it into lemonade. In terms of this project, that is how we have been approaching it.”It wasn’t Ryan’s intent to make himself the star of Welcome to Wrexham, unlike the Deadpool films.

As early as then, we had the edict that we wanted to contribute to Wrexham’s story. Reynolds said, “We don’t want Wrexham to become part of our story.” As a result, it’s pretty self-explanatory when you keep those guardrails in mind. We don’t want it to become the ‘Rob and Ryan Show.’

However, we do want to give our viewers insight into the amazing and insane walk it is to attempt something this crazy and unexpected. In addition to playing in the oldest international stadium on earth, this is the third oldest professional football club on earth. To every one of us, it is a serious matter.

No matter how old you are in Wrexham or how young you are in Wrexham, remember that I love you. There is a passion. There is a spirit of belonging to Wrexham A.F.C. in every person out there. There are high stakes from the very beginning. Centering the club is an easy choice, since, no matter how you spin it, that’s what will happen in the long run.”
