When Ryan Reynolds posted a bunch of pictures to his Instagram with Make-a-Wish kids on the set of the Untitled Deadpool Sequel, it made us smile. Reynolds embraces the persona of Wade Wilson, but at heart he’s still a dad, and seeing these kids with cancer is hard for anyone. Wade Wilson famously had terminal cancer, and the whole reason he got his healing ability was to save his life. As Reynolds said: “Deadpool kicked Cancer in the taint, but these kids do it for real every day.” The pictures are really sweet, so scroll through them below on Reynolds’s Instagram page.

One of the best parts of playing the Big Red Jackass is welcoming @makeawishamerica and @childrenswishfoundation 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 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.) 🇨🇦⚔️
Summary(?): After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Untitled Deadpool Sequel, directed by David Leitch, stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, and Zazie Beetz. It will be released on June 1st.
