It looks like the Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds just keeps on doing his unconventional heroic acts even outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise.
Right after we got a first look on the trailer for his upcoming film with director Michael Bay, 6 Underground, we're now getting a poster of another film starring Reynolds… and yes, it seems that he is playing yet another hero that kinda breaks the all-righteous trope of supers.
Check out the poster for Free Guy below:
In the poster, we see Reynolds who play as Guy, clad in an office uniform doing the iconic Superman pose where he opens up his button-down shirt from the chest to reveal his 'S' logo, only Guy's just wearing the same uniform underneath.
"On a very literal level, Free Guy is about Guy, who's a bank teller. He works in a bank, and his bank gets robbed 17 times in a day, and eventually he realizes that's weird and not normal," the film's director, Shawn Levy reveals, via the Hollywood Reporter. "Ryan and I have talked about Free Guy as a superhero origin story without the cape and tights and the IP. If you were living in a video game and could master the system, your powers would be limitless."
Other stars appearing in the film are Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok director), Joe Keery (Stranger Things) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve). In a clip shared by Ryan Reynolds on Twitter, he and Waititi had seemingly 'forgot' about the Green Lantern movie where they first got to work together.
I remember the first time I met Taika. It was way back in 2019, but it feels like it wasn’t 10 years ago. #FreeGuy #introductions #NewFriends @TaikaWaititi pic.twitter.com/8gPZ8ZYxId
