Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool came through for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and a young fan as Reynolds visited with Tony Acevado while filming the movie in Vancouver.

Ryan Reynolds posted the following images on his Instagram account where he shared his experience with making Tony Acevado's, a young child suffering from Hodgkin's lymphoma, dreams come true.

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



"Deadpool" has a February 12, 2016 release directed by Tim Miller starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, TJ Miller, Brianne Hildebrand and Ed Skrein.


Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
