Ryan Reynolds is the type of guy that has both a heart of gold and the mouth of a sailor. Deadpool has only proven this in spades, as Reynolds' Merc with the Mouth has only helped fuel this public perception of the Canadian-born actor. So it's no surprise that in a recent tweet from the set of Deadpool 2, Reynolds used that brand of charm and brass balls to help support those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. You can see his short, but sweet, message below:
Undoubtedly in the middle of production for Deadpool 2, it's always a pleasure to see someone like Ryan Reynolds take time out from his busy schedule to be what he always has been under the suit: a decent human being. It's the sort of stuff that would make him a proper Batman, if his sweetness weren't to be followed by a quippy crack involving profanity and more than likely someone's mother. Then again, that's the reason fans wanted him to be Deadpool, and Deadpool's gonna Deadpool.
More good guy points go to Reynolds for wearing a t-shirt supporting the rebuilding and recovery efforts over his Deadpool 2 gear, as he not only is showing his true colors, but he's helping distract from all of the duct tape on his suit. One can only wonder what's happened to him in the process of the David Leitch-directed sequel to one of 2016's surprising mega-hits, but whatever it is, we're sure his regenerative powers will cover it. But perhaps the best part about Ryan Reynolds' choice in charity links to include in his fowl mouthed fellowship greeting.
In times of natural disaster, it's sometimes hard to know who you can trust when it comes to donating towards recovery efforts. Thankfully, the sources provided by Reynolds' Twitter post, Americares and Charity Navigator, are pretty handy and legit resources for such efforts. The latter is especially helpful when evaluating where your money will do its best work getting into the hands of those who need it. You may not be one of the X-Men, but you can still make a difference where it counts.
Deadpool 2 kicks some ass, with a heart, on June 1, 2018. More importantly, we here at CinemaBlend send our continued support and wishes of safety to the communities being affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. If you would like to donate to either Americares or Charity Navigator, then you can use the links provided here and here, respectively.
