Los Angeles, May 24: Actor Ryan Reynolds, who will play the title role in the upcoming film "Deadpool", helped a cancer-struck young fan’s dream come true through Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Tony Acevedo, battling Hodgkin’s disease (also known as Hodgkin’s lymphoma), got the chance to meet Deadpool on the film’s Vancouver set. Acevedo was also able to embody his favourite comic book character by wearing the Deadpool mask and gloves, reports variety.com.
“Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool,” Reynolds captioned an Instagram photograph.
“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 added.
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, will release on February 12, 2016. (Bollywood Country Report)
