Ryan Reynolds has got an adorable new Deadpool 2 co-star, and the actor just welcomed him in the best way possible!
Reynolds took to Instagram to let fans in on the fact that 14-year-old Julian Dennison has officially joined the cast of Deadpool 2 by sharing a fun picture of himself in full Deadpool gear giving his new co-star a piggy back ride.
“Giving Julian Dennison a warm [Deadpool] welcome as we stare off into our beautiful future together,” wrote Reynolds in the caption of the photo.
Dennison might be a relative newcomer to the states, but fans of Director Taika Waititi’s Hunt For The Wilderpeople will undoubtedly recognize the young star. Dennison played the unforgettable Ricky Baker in the 2016 comedy about a rebellious kid and his uncle who go missing in the New Zealand bush, sparking a national manhunt.
There’s no information on who Dennison is set to play just yet, but we’re already looking forward to seeing how his character crosses paths with Reynold’s Deadpool on the big screen!
The young star isn’t the only fresh face we’ll be seeing when Deadpool 2 hits the big screen. Actor Josh Brolin has also joined the cast of the highly anticipated marvel flick as Cable.
Deadpool 2 is set to be released in June of 2018.
