Ryan Reynolds, Gregor Robertson Get Chummy On Deadpool Set
|The Huffington Post 18 Apr 2015 at 03:36|
Downtown condo dwellers, workers, and general gawkers will have to move along now that actor Ryan Reynolds and his "Deadpool" movie have finished filming on a busy Vancouver roadway.
Reynolds who was born and raised in Vancouver and his stunt double were regularly spotted shooting action scenes on the Georgia Viaduct over the past two weeks. The road, which normally sees thousands of vehicles, was closed to accommodate the Marvel anti-hero film.
"The production and the City of Vancouver thank you for your patience during filming," said a city news release on Friday.
"Deadpool" will bring almost $38 million to Vancouver and create 1,100 jobs during the shoot, said city officials.
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson visited Reynolds and the "Deadpool" viaduct set on the last day of filming:

You don t have to guess what the pair talked about, because Reynolds revealed their high-level discussion about a Whistler-to-Vancouver waterslide:
It s not every day you get to ask the Mayor about building a gigantic waterslide from Whistler to Vancouver. https://t.co/gWOiVJdqAA

At this rate, Reynolds may turn out to be an actual superhero if that waterslide is built AND "The Beachcombers" gets rebooted .
Blake Lively And Ryan Reynolds
At the Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live Concert on June 1, 2013 in London, England, the pair make a rare appearance together; she in a 70s style mini dress with a cape detail and he in a sexy street style chic blue leather jacket and matching jeans, shirt and tie.

At San Diego Comic Con on July 24, 2010, the twosome, who weren t a couple then (Ryan was married to Scarlett Johansson), wore complementary white-and-black outfits. See! It was meant to be!
At the Spike TV Scream 2010 awards, Oct. 16, 2010, the pair wore contrasting yet complementary outfits; Ryan sporting yet another leather jacket and jeans and Blake channeling her inner Greek goddess in a flowing dress with a high slit.
At the premiere of "The Green Lantern" in June 2011, the co-stars seemed to subconsciously know that one day Blake would be walking down the aisle in white.
