Ryan Reynolds Dons Deadpool Costume to Make Wishes Come True

Deadpool isn’t exactly the best role model for kids, but they love him — and Ryan Reynolds — anyway.

“One of the best parts of playing the Big Red Jackass is welcoming @makeawishamerica and @childrenswishfoundation onto set,” Reynolds shared in an Instagram post on Monday.

“Deadpool kicked Cancer in the taint, but these kids do it for real every day,” he continued. “These foundations make dreams come true for a lot of super-brave kids. They also make dreams come true for parents, who just wanna see their kid smile.”

The kids also got to take home a prop from the upcoming sequel. Reynolds explained, “HUGE thanks to our Prop Master, Dan Sissons, for making sure every kid left with his/her own sword. (Bamboo versions. Not stabby-stabby versions.) 🇨🇦⚔.”

“Deadpool 2” will hit theaters on May 18, 2018.
