NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 19: Ryan Reynolds attends The Contenders Screening of DEADPOOL With Ryan Reynolds at MOMA on December 19, 2016 in New York City.

It’s been said before, but we’ll say it again.

Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds is a superhero in the movies and in real life.

If he’s not helping a girl deal with her prom photos after a breakup or granting a boy with Hodgkins Disease his wish to meet the Deadpool actor, he’s FaceTiming a 5-year-old boy with terminally-ill cancer.

According to, Reynolds made Daniel Downing’s dream come true when he arranged a FaceTime chat with him from the set of Deadpool 2, which is expected to hit theaters in June of next year.

Daniel, who was wearing Deadpool’s face on his top, was so surprised to hear from the actor. Besides discussing his illness, Daniel was introduced to the Deadpool characters. His mother was so grateful and beyond elated that Reynolds took time out of his busy Hollywood life to talk to Daniel.
