Wrexham AFC co-owner Ryan Reynolds has said that people will see that taking over the club isn’t “weird at all”.

The Deadpool star, who owns the club with fellow actor Rob McElhenney, made the comments during an appearance on The One Show on the BBC to promote his new blockbuster, Free Guy.

He also praised Wrexham’s community and described the club as “incredible”.

In the new film he stars as a background character in a video game who decides to become the hero.

Welsh presenter Alex Jones said: “It’s weird that you’ve chosen Wrexham, but we’re chuffed. It’s amazing”

Reynolds replied. “They’re amazing. “I think once people get to know Wrexham a little bit better they’re going to see how it’s not weird at all. It’s spot on. We’re really excited. ”

He also said: “Myself and Rob McElhenney is my partner on the project. We’re very very excited. The Wrexham club is incredible.

“More incredible still is the community around it, so this is as much a project investing in the Wrexham red dragons as it is investing in the Wrexham community itself so we’re really excited.”

I’m a Wrexham fan and even I think it’s a bit weird! Brilliant but still weird. I never understood why a Malaysian billionaire bought Cardiff City Bluebirds, upset everyone by making them play in red and changing their name to the Dragons, when all he had to do was buy Wrexham AFC who already play in red and are called The Dragons! At least Ryan and Rob did some proper research and saw the real potential. Wrexham were relegated from the football league when they lost to Brentford in May 2005. Brentford are now a Premier League side. That has… Read more »

RR is a dollar billionaire for a reason. His investment in the Gin brand gained him hundreds of millions and as a producer of his films he earns more than the tens of millions he gets for starring in them.
He isn’t as altruistic as all that and even though he does give millions to charity Wrexham AFC is a business venture.
