Ryan Reynolds meets 8-year-old super fan on ‘Deadpool 2’ set

Tue, Aug 8: Actor Ryan Reynolds creating a big stir in Vancouver on the set of "Deadpool 2," meeting with fans, including members of the VPD. Aaron Mcarthur reports.


Vincent Carmichael is a huge Deadpool fan, even though he’s never seen the R-rated film because he’s just eight years old.

That didn’t stop him from spending the last two days on the set of Deadpool 2, which has been filming in the streets of Downtown Vancouver, dressed up as a pint-sized version of the Marvel comic book hero.

According to Vincent, every time he visits the set, “I put on this costume straight up.”

Vincent was hanging around the set with his mother Caitlin on Monday and the crew took a shine to him right away. Eventually, the mini-Deadpool got a chance to meet a couple of the stars of the highly anticipated sequel. Just don’t ask him who they are.

“I met the bad guy,” he said, referring to the villain Cable played by actor Josh Brolin. Reynolds posted a photo of the encounter to his Twitter account.

Vincent had so much fun that his mother agreed to let him return to the set on Tuesday.

That’s when he got to spend some time with star Ryan Reynolds, who gave Vincent a couple of pieces of advice.

“He said, ‘Stay in school,'” mother Caitlin said. “And he said, ‘Be nice to your mama,’ which I totally get behind.”

Vincent said he expects Mom will remind him of Reynolds’ pearls of wisdom “every single day.”
