WATCH: ‘Free Guy’ Trailer Puts Ryan Reynolds in a GTA-Like Game

Ryan Reynolds is Guy, a background character in an open-world video game who suddenly breaks free of his intended role and decides to rewrite himself as a hero.

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds is once again hitting the big screen in the comedy epic adventure film Free Guy!

Like the popular Marvel character, Reynolds will be playing another unexpected hero in this film, a guy intended to be just the Guy. About two months ago, we saw the first poster for movie, and now we're getting its first trailer! Check it out below:

Ryan Reynolds is indeed one of the biggest stars of today, having already played two pop culture icons just in the past three years: Deadpool and the beloved Pokémon Pikachu in the film Detective Pikachu. Reynolds also plays the lead in the new Michael Bay film from Netflix, 6 Underground.

In Free Guy, Ryan Reynolds is Guy, a bank teller who lives in a bizarre world where people armed with heavy weapons is a normal sight. During a bank robbery, which has become a routine to him and his coworkers, Guy suddenly feels like he must take action and he does, acquiring access to the truth behind their existence— that they are background characters in an open-world video game. From thereon, Guy rewrites himself to become the hero of his world.
