Deadpool himself has teased a team-up with New Zealand's Hunt for the Wilderpeoplestar Julian Dennison.

Ryan Reynolds dressed in the character's tight red superhero costume for an Instagram post in which he gives the teen a piggyback.

"Giving Julian Dennison a warm Deadpool welcome as we stare off into our beautiful future together," he captioned the pic.

The image along with the "future together" comment has sparked rumours that Dennison will play a part in the upcoming Deadpool sequel.

"Deadpool's new sidekick?...Ricky 'F***in' Baker!!!!!" commented banananaman82.

A teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 dropped in May, ahead of its reported release in 2018 or 2019.

Up-and-coming actor Dennison gained the world's attention with his role in Taika Waititi's film, which received critical acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival.
