Daniel is a huge Marvel fan, but Deadpool is his hands-down favorite superhero. The boy from Plympton, UK, was beyond ecstatic to meet him.
“Daniel picked up the phone and Ryan asked if he knew who he was,” Stephanie said.
“As soon as Daniel realised, he asked if he could FaceTime him and then he was very, very hyper.”
Daniel’s family has been determined to make his last few months as special as possible. Nevertheless, they were blown away that their efforts to get ahold of the incredibly busy Ryan Reynolds were successful.
“I messaged his assistant to say how eternally grateful we all are for him taking the time out to talk to Daniel. It was absolutely fantastic,” Stephanie said.
“I’m so happy for Daniel – it’s something he wouldn’t normally have been able to do and he was so excited. He told all his friends and his teachers.”
“It’s nice to see him so excited because he has been a bit down lately.”
