Reshoots for Deadpool 2 are currently underway and Canada's Children's Wish as well as the United States' Make-A-Wish foundations were invited to the set to meet the Merc with a Mouth. Ryan Reynolds took to social media to share some of the pictures of the children visiting the set and gave them some nice words of encouragement along with a pretty awesome gift. It was recently revealed by Josh Brolin that Deadpool 2 was heading back to Vancouver to do reshoots, which should only last a few weeks.
The Make-A-Wish and Children's Wish Foundations go out of their way to give children with cancer some joy in their lives and this particular group of kids got to go hang out with Ryan Reynolds on the set of Deadpool 2 in Vancouver. Reynolds shared photos from the visits on his social media accounts and mentioned that all of the kids that came by the set to hangout were given replicas of Deadpool's katana swords. The actor assured that the swords aren't the "stabby-stabby versions." He had this to say.
"One of the best parts of playing the Big Red Jackass is welcoming Make-A-Wish America and Children's Wish Foundation of Canada onto set. Deadpool kicked Cancer in the taint, but these kids do it for real every day. 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. 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.)"
One fan did take offense at the idea of kids visiting the R-rated set of Deadpool 2 and attempted to go after the actor, saying, "Guys [D]eadpool is [an] R rated movie and those kids are watching it...I think something is wrong here." Ryan Reynolds was quick to nip this in the bud, and countered the exchange with this comeback.
"Yup. Deadpool is Rated R. If my kid went through a fraction of the sh*t these kids deal with daily, I think they can watch whatever they like. That's just my .02 cents."
From the pictures that Ryan Reynolds shared, it looked like the "Big Red Jackass" was successful in his mission to make some families smile. Reynolds uses some language that Wade Wilson would use in Deadpool 2, but he seems genuinely happy that he was able to help out these kids. Reynolds isn't the only real-life super hero, as we've seen Tom Holland visiting a children's hospital as Spider-Man along with Chris Evans and Chris Pratt bringing Captain America and Star-Lord, respectively, to hospitals as well.
As previously noted, it was recently revealed that Deadpool 2 was heading back into Vancouver for reshoots under the working title of Daisy. Josh Brolin, who plays Cable, took to Instagram to share a video of a man doing an intense work out, claiming it was him, while calling out Ryan Reynolds' abs as nothing more than CGI magic. The two actors seem to have a great time working together and have been poking fun at each other on social media since production began last year.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18th and the Make-A-Wish and Children's Wish foundations just gave some children a sneak preview and a day that they will never forget. It's not every day that you get to see real-life superheroes helping out those in need, but the new crop of DCEU, MCU, and other superhero actors are doing a tremendous job. You can check out some of the photos from the Make-A-Wish and Children's Wish visits to the Deadpool 2 set below, courtesy of Ryan Reynolds' Facebook account.
