The world has seen Ryan Gosling in a variety of roles including the romantic Ryan Gosling in ‘The Notebook’ and ‘La La Land’, action hero Ryan Gosling in ‘Drive’ and ‘Blade Runner 2049’, and even the comic Ryan Gosling in ‘The Nice Guys’ and ‘Crazy Stupid Love’ since he became an A-list actor. These are only a few of the characters the three-time Academy Award nominee has introduced to the big screen. Even then, upcoming Ryan Gosling films like ‘Wolfman’ may still reveal other sides of the actor. Everything a Gosling fan may anticipate seeing on the big screen, starting with the first of the Canadian Hollywood heartthrob’s new sides, is listed below for a sneak peek of these upcoming personas: Ryan Gosling, aka “the spy.”

‘The Gray Man’

For a while, it appeared like Ryan Gosling’s portrayal as the enigmatic “Driver” in the 2011 film Drive—who sports one of the baddest crime-fighting outfits in movie history would be the closest thing he would ever get to portraying a superhero. It therefore seems particularly lucky that Anthony and Joe Russo, two directors who contributed to permanently redefining superhero movies, will be helming his upcoming feature.


It is difficult to picture Ryan Gosling playing a villain, a part he has occasionally performed (most notably in the films ‘Murder By Numbers’ and ‘The Believer’), but not recently. Furthermore, a Goosebumps episode from his youth was his last substantial foray into the horror genre. When he plays the title character in the upcoming Blumhouse remake of a Universal monster movie, it seems as though both streaks might come to an end.

The actor

The film noir hero is a side of Ryan Gosling that has been showcased numerous times, both in the modernised sense with the aforementioned ‘Drive’ and ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’ in 2012 and in the classic meaning with filmmaker Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad the year after. Well, it goes without saying that the man is good at playing these kinds of characters, and as far as I’m concerned, he is welcome to play them again anytime he pleases, which is why I’m looking forward to seeing The Actor.

‘Project Hail Mary’

Ryan Gosling’s portrayal of astronaut Neil Armstrong in Damien Chazelle’s breathtaking biopic First Man, released in 2018, revealed a newer side of the actor. The fact that the actor has another space adventure coming up suggests that he may not be ready to make a full return to Earth anytime soon.

Ryan Gosling is co-producing a number of upcoming movies, including ‘The Underwater Welder’, but it is unknown if he will also act in any of them. The Hollywood Reporter claims that the actor was actually considering making it his second directing effort after writing and directing the fantasy drama Lost River in 2014.
