Ryan Reynolds Grants Young "Deadpool" Fan's Wish with Set Visit

"Deadpool" star Ryan Reynolds welcomed Tony Acevedo, a young fan with Hodgkin's Disease, to set for a Make-A-Wish Foundation wish come true.

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."

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.
