Deadpool 2: Ryan Reynolds Responds To A Fan Criticizing Make-A-Wish Kids’ Set Visit

Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds recently met with kids from Make-A-Wish America and the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada who came to visit him on the set of the sequel project. The actor took to Facebook and Instagram to share some pictures with the kids. In the pictures, Ryan can be seen hanging out with the kids wearing his Deadpool costume and signing fake swords given to the youngsters.

“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 the set,” Reynolds captioned the pictures on social media. “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.)”

In his post, Reynolds praised organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Children Wish Foundation for making the dreams of both kids and their parents come true.

While most of the fans are happy with the Deadpool 2 actor’s gesture, one of them was not pleased to hear the news. He pointed out that Ryan’s film is R-rated and not appropriate to watch for children under 17.

Guys Deadpool is (a) R rated movie and those kids are watching it… I think something is wrong here,” the fan noted as spotted by JustJared.

Reynolds responded back saying “Yup. Deadpool is Rated R. If my kid went through a fraction of the s–t these kids deal with daily, I think they can watch whatever they like. That’s just my .02 cents.”

Promotions for the film are underway as more production photos, teasers and BTS pictures are expected to be released soon. Fans can get their hands on them by registering to the newsletter of the fan site created by the studio.

Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 also stars Josh Brolin as Cable, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa and T.J. Miller as Weasel. The film will land in theatres on May 18, 2018.
