‘Deadpool’ Star Ryan Reynolds Breaks From Shooting to Visit Young Fan Battling Hodgkin’s Disease (Photos)

Actor meets young boy in Vancouver

The Merc With a Mouth also definitely has a heart.

Ryan Reynolds took a break from filming “Deadpool” in Vancouver on Friday to spend time with Tony Acevedo, a young boy with Hodgkin’s disease who asked the Make a Wish Foundation if he could meet the comic book character.

“Tony Acevedo asked Make A Wish Foundation if he could meet Deadpool,” Reynolds wrote on Instagram. “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 has shared a number of Deadpool related things on social media in recent months, including an image of the Marvel character delivering a baby on Mother’s Day and another of the character stretched out on a bearskin rug.

“Deadpool” is scheduled for release on February 12, 2016.
