Ryan Reynolds welcomed a brave little boy onto the set of upcoming ‘Deadpool’ movie and let the young cancer sufferer try on his mask.
Tony Acevedo, who is battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma, got the chance to wear the iconic red and black Deadpool mask and gloves thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The 38-year-old actor Reynolds gave Acevedo a big hug on the set of the Marvel movie in Vancouver, which is due for release in 2016.
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
Reynolds shared the heart-warming photos on his Instagram page.
Last week Ryan also gave Deadpool’s katana sword to 15-year-old Calista King, who had surgery for malignant brain tumours.
Tony is a real superhero. Let’s hope he can beat cancer the same way Deadpool vanquishes his enemies!
