WATCH: Deadpool and Korg react to ‘Free Guy’ trailer

PROMO. Deadpool and Korg appear in a reaction video to the trailer for the upcoming film 'Free Guy.'

Ryan Reynold's Twitter account

This marks Deadpool's first interaction with the Marvel Cinematic Universe

In a promotion that seemed to have come from out of nowhere, Ryan Reynolds posted a short trailer reaction of his upcoming movie, Free Guy, featuring his character Deadpool and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) character Korg.

Called Deadpool’s Maximum Reactions, this meta reaction features Ryan Reynolds as the immortal anti-hero and Taika Waititi as the walking, talking pile of rocks. Both actors also have starring roles in Free Guy.

In typical Deadpool fashion, the R-rated hero took digs at everyone from Disney buying Fox to insulting Reynolds himself, something Deadpool has done on multiple occasions.

Weirdly enough this is Deadpool’s first interaction with the MCU since the acquisition of Fox by Disney. However, MCU’s Kevin Feige has assured fans that Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool will be here to stay. In an interview with Collider, Feige promised to keep the movie R-rated but stated that won’t start until 2022 at the earliest.

Deadpool is one of Fox’s most lucrative Marvel movie franchises and went on to become one of the highest grossing R-rated films of all time, with its sequel surpassing its record.

Free Guy is also produced by 20th Century Fox and is one of the few movies produced in the middle of the monumental acquisition.

It was slated for release on July 3, 2020, but it was postponed thrice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be released in the United States on August 13. – with reports from Adrian Soriano/Rappler.com
