This past Friday saw Ryan Reynolds hit by a car driven by the paparazzi.

Reynolds, who is presently filming Deadpool in his hometown, was struck by the car in a parking garage in Vancouver.

Canada's CTV News reports the car drove off after striking Reynolds, and that the police are investigating.

The report mentions that Ryan Reynolds was not injured by the incident.

"While walking, Ryan was struck by a paparazzi driving a car through an underground parking garage,” Reynolds’ publicist, Leslie Sloane, confirmed.  “The man fled the scene. Ryan is okay.” 

It's said the police presently have "an idea" who hit Reynolds, and also that the hotel where the parking garage is located is fully cooperating. As Reynolds wasn't hurt by the incident, it's said the police need to speak with Reynolds in person to determine charges.

As the incident happened this past Friday, we see that Reynolds was unaffected as filming continued on Deadpool Saturday, with Reynolds tweeting out the image of Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead.


"Deadpool" has a February 12, 2016 release directed by Tim Miller starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein and Brianne Hildebrand.


Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
