Ryan Reynolds spent some time recently putting smiles on the faces of some very special kids while filming for Deadpool. He met with Tony Acevedo, a little boy fighting Hodgkin’s Disease, and 15-year-old Calista King who is a huge Deadpool fan. He sent King home with Deadpool’s sword and let little Tony don Deadpool’s mask and gloves.
Tony’s visit was through Make A Wish Foundation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he wanted to meet with Deadpool because, “Deadpool never dies and everything he touches has magical powers.”
See Reynold’s Instagram posts after the break.
Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool. 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. Huge thanks to @makeawishamerica
15 yr old Calista King – World's greatest #deadpool fan – visited set yesterday. Sure, we put her in the film. Sure, I said a lot of terrible words around her. And her mother. And especially her grandmother. But more importantly, she left with Deadpool's sword. I can't think of a better person to have it.
