Whenever natural disasters hit, millions of citizens can lose a lot. Donations have helped quite a bit for relief, and much of that is thanks to some well-known public figures that voice their support and donate a sizable amount of money to help. Now, Ryan Reynolds took a quick break from filming Deadpool 2 to voice his support for victims of Hurricane Irma.
Reynolds took to social media to share a photo of him wearing a t-shirt with the text, “Hope. Heal. REBUILD,” on top off his Deadpool costume. You can see the photo down below, courtesy of Reynolds’ official Twitter account.

The citizens of Houston, Texas recently suffered major damage to the city after Hurricane Harvey hit. Thankfully, people are showing their inner hero by sending donations to those in Houston who were affected by the damage. Now with Hurricane Irma headed towards Florida, people worldwide are already gathering what the resources needed to send to those who will be harmed by its effects.
Fans of all things superheroes and comic books can use these tragic situations to do something truly heroic. It is always great to see some of the actors/actresses who bring our favorite heroes to life on the big screen take the opportunity to spread awareness and support for people affected by these natural disasters.
Reynolds also shared links for people to check out in order to share their support. You can visit Americares.org or charitynavigator.org for an opportunity to donate to help the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie
So it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think 20th Century Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big screen as soon as possible.
There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focuses on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.
