Ryan Reynolds cancelled his arm surgery to fly to China for “Deadpool 2” promotions, ahead of the franchise’s surprise theatrical debut in the country.
The 42-year-old star had injured his left arm shooting the film and was scheduled to have surgery in New York on Sunday, but skipped the appointment. Last week, Fox announced that a re-cut, PG-13 “Deadpool 2” would hit Chinese screens on this Friday. This was the first time the franchise has passed the country’s stringent censorship rules.
According to Variety, Reynolds told his fans in Beijing that he was not going to let the surgery interfere with his “dream” to visit China. Deadpool 2 is the sequel to Reynolds’ widely popular Deadpool aka ‘Merc with a mouth’.
