DEADPOOL: Ryan Reynolds Makes a Fan’s Dream Come True for Make-A-Wish

     May 22, 2015


The Merc with a Mouth also has a big heart, too. Ryan Reynolds has been delivering a steady stream of images while shooting Deadpool, but his latest is extra special. Reynolds just shared some photos from Tony Acevedo’s visit to the Vancouver set. Tony is battling Hodgkin’s Disease and asked to meet Deadpool as his Make-A-Wish Foundation wish. Not only did Tony get some face time with Reynolds in full costume, but he also got to rock the Deadpool mask and gloves himself.

And this isn’t even the first time Reynolds made a fan’s dream come true while shooting the movie. He also met Calista King, a 15-year-old fighting a brain tumor. She got a walk-on role in the film and went home with Deadpool’s sword. It’s always exciting checking out new images and getting first looks at sets and costumes, but there’s really nothing more heartwarming than getting a peek at moments like this.


Deadpool also stars Ed Skrein as Ajax, Morena Baccarin as Copycat, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead and T.J Miller as Weasel, and is set to hit theaters on February 12, 2016. Here’s the official synopsis:

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.
