For his Make-a-Wish Foundation request, Acevedo wanted to meet Deadpool in the flesh, so he was flown out to the "Deadpool" set in Vancouver, where he met Reynolds and even got to try on the suit. On his Instagram, Reynolds joked that Acevedo was able to take on Deadpool, no sweat, and that "Tony's next fight is with Hodgkin's Disease... Hodgkin's Disease best be wearing its brown pants."
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
Since "Deadpool" officially started production, Reynolds has frequently turned to social media with wisecracks and reveals from the film, from the very first look at the official Deadpool costume to Deadpool's reaction to "Deadpool" #250, which officially killed the character.
"Deadpool" is scheduled for release on February 12, 2016.
