Ryan Reynolds makes fan's wish come true on Vancouver set

Ryan Reynolds is back in town filming scenes for the upcoming Deadpool adaptation, but his heroic quests don’t end after the cameras stop rolling. Reynolds recently greeted a young fan whose Make-A-Wish Foundation dream was to put the Marvel character.

Tony Acevedo, a six-year-old American fan with Hodgkin’s Disease asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation to meet Deadpool, so the children’s charity brought Acevedo to the film set in Vancouver last week.

“Deadpool never dies and everything he touches has magical powers,” Acevedo told the Foundation, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.


The B.C.-born actor was just as touched to meet the young boy, sharing a couple of photos to his new Instagram account.

“Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool,” Reynolds wrote on his Instagram, “I wasn’t expecting him to sneak the mask, put on the gloves, smile… and then beat Deadpool about the face, arms and jugular with blazing speed. Tony’s next fight is with Hodgkin’s Disease. Hodgkin’s Disease best be wearing its brown pants.”

This is the second time Reynolds has made a kid’s wish come true on set. Two weeks ago he welcomed 15-year-old Calista King, “world’s greatest Deadpool fan” to the set. King is currently sick with a brain tumour.
