Watch out, Batkid. You have some competition now.
Meet Kid Deadpool, a.k.a. Tony Acevedo. A young boy diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease, Acevedo made a wish to visit the Deadpool movie set through the Make A Wish foundation. And no one granted that wish better than Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, who shared his Deadpool mask and gloves with Acevedo. Reynolds then shared the experience on his Instagram page, fully confidant that Acevedo will beat the disease just as easily as he whipped Deadpool.
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
