Ryan Reynolds takes photo with Vancouver Police while filming 'Deadpool 2'
A few streets in downtown Vancouver were shut down Tuesday due to a careless vespa rider in a red suit.
Deadpool 2 has been filming in the city for the past few weeks, and Vancouver-born Ryan Reynolds drew a crowd to watch the filming of a scooter scene.
Many snapped pictures of the morally ambiguous super-hero hanging out on his bright red vespa (it’s so the blood won’t show) as he was pulled throughout the city hooked up to the back of a truck.
So walk out to the street and see a total badass @VancityReynolds is that you? #DeadPool2 pic.twitter.com/EIGAmAbIKK

Reynolds himself thanked the Vancouver Police Department for their help in locking down the streets for filming (of “Spider-Man”) by posing for a picture with the group and posting it to his Twitter account.
Thank you #VPD. And the great people of Vancouver for putting up with road closures and traffic delays as we film Spider-Man downtown. pic.twitter.com/EweL1TtM2k

We’re sure that this won’t be the last time we see Reynolds filming around Vancouver in the coming weeks, or newcomer Cable (being played by Josh Brolin) who has also been spotted around the city.
Deadpool 2 is set for theatres June 2018.
