Our first look at Deadpool in the MCU has arrived!
Well, kind of. Seeing as Disney owns Marvel and Fox, and the latter means they have Deadpool (as part of the X-Men universe screen rights) and upcoming Ryan Reynolds movie Free Guy under their umbrella, the massive corporation can show off the type of three-way marketing crossover only they can deliver. Take a look at a Free Guy trailer reaction video featuring Reynolds’ Deadpool and Taika Waititi‘s much-loved Korg, the Kronan warrior we were introduced to in Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.
“I’ll be reacting to a trailer for a movie which I honestly thought came out, like, a year ago,” quips Deadpool. Indeed, the pandemic hasn’t been kind to the film’s release plans; it was at one point set for release in July 2020, then December 2020, then May 2021.
The film’s finally heading to cinemas (although, at this point, I guess it really just depends on how your city/state is doing). Free Guy, starring Reynolds, Waititi, Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Joe Keery, hits Australian cinemas on August 12th and US cinemas on August 13th.
In “Free Guy,” a bank teller who discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game, decides to become the hero of his own story…one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way…before it is too late.
