Ryan Reynolds Helps Young Cancer Patient Meet Deadpool

Deadpool might as well be nicknamed the Merc With a Heart.

Ryan Reynolds helped a young fan’s dream come true through the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Tony Acevedo, battling Hodgkin’s disease (also known as Hodgkin’s lymphoma), got the chance to meet Deadpool on the upcoming film’s Vancouver set. Acevedo was also able to embody his favorite comic book character by wearing the Deadpool mask and gloves.

“Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool,” Reynolds captioned an Instagram photo. “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.”

Reynolds met another fan, 15-year-old Calista King, who has a brain tumor, last week. She got a walk-on role in the film and went home with Deadpool’s sword.

Deadpool, which also stars Ed Skrein as Ajax, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and T.J Miller as Weasel, hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
