Ryan Reynold has the highest grossing movie Deadpool compared to Ryan Gosling’s Crazy, Stupid, Love, the reason why is because Deadpool already had a set fan base through Marvels comic and movie fans, so it decreases the integrity of the Deadpool movie gross compared to Crazy, Stupid, Love which had no previous fan base.
