Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds to put Wrexham football heroes like Ben Foster in new Marvel movie alongside Wolverine | The Sun

RYAN REYNOLDS is lining up players from Wrexham for parts in his latest Deadpool movie.

The Hollywood star is tipped to give cameo roles to top scorer Paul Mullin and goalkeeping hero Ben Foster when Deadpool 3 starts filming this month.

Reynolds is well-known for featuring his different projects together – and even wore a Wrexham baseball cap in a trailer to promote his latest Deadpool movie.

The latest in the Deadpool series – also starring Wolverine Hugh Jackman – is even being filmed in the UK which will make it easier for the Wrexham players to take part.

Filming starts in Pinewood Studios later this month with the movie due out next year.

When asked if any players could feature in the movie, Wrexham executive director Humphrey Ker said: "I would be quite surprised if not.

"Ryan is very good at you know, layering through all his part elements of his life and his career and everything, they all interconnect in all sorts of different ways.

"I'm sure they'll be, who knows, Paul Mullin to play an X-Man?"

Foster said: “Just been in for a chat with the chairman, the one and only Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds…

"He’s even said that he’ll put me in the new one with him and Big Hugh Jacko, friggin’ Wolverine,”

The teaser for the new movie revealed to fans how superstar Hugh Jackman will reprieve his Wolverine character in the latest movie.

Reynolds and comedy pal Rob McElhenney documented their journey into buying the North Wales club with documentary series Welcome to Wrexham – and saw the team promoted to the Football League for the first time in 15 years.

To celebrate their promotion to League Two next year, the stars laid on a luxury trip to Las Vegas for the team.

Movie director Shawn Levy has complained that Reynolds has become too obsessed with Wrexham to have time to film Deadpool 3.

Levy, who will direct the movie, said: “His obsession with Wrexham and by the way the obsession of all of Wales with Ryan Reynolds is becoming problematic.

"I’m trying to get us ready to shoot Deadpool and he’s so distracted by this football team.

“So no I can’t get you tickets, and I need to downgrade his obsession, because he won’t get any work done."
