`Deadpool` has finally made its way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to the quirky teaser of `Free Guy` unveiled on Wednesday. The nearly five-minute-long promotional teaser of Ryan Reynolds` upcoming action-packed film `Free Guy` also unveiled `Deadpool`s much-speculated news. In the video, Ryan reprises his antihero role to promote the film with the help of Thor Ragnarok`s lovable character Korg, voiced by filmmaker-actor Taika Waititi who is also Ryan`s fellow star in `Free Guy`.

As the video continues, viewers can see `Deadpool` operating its own video channel that reacts to movie trailers in the clip. The comic book character sits with Korg as the pair crack jokes about the film`s preview, including Ryan`s films too. “Oh, his face is so punchable,” `Deadpool` jokes and later refers to Ryan as a “Canadian Cumberbatch”.
As the video continues, viewers are unveiled with the news that Disney, which owns Marvel, also claims ownership of 20th Century Studios — previously 20th Century Fox — home of `Deadpool` and Free Guy, as per People Magazine. “DP is officially in the MCU!” Ryan wrote alongside the clip on Instagram. “He`s starting with reaction videos, then some social influencer work, onto Parks appearances all leading up to some after-credit work by 2030,” Ryan added.
`Free Guy` that stars Ryan as `Guy`, a non-playable character (NPC) who becomes conscientious of his role in a video game and must survive the game`s coders and the game company`s boss, played by Waititi, on their quest to eliminate him. The Shawn Levy-directed film also stars Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery and Joe Keery, among others.
The action-packed, sci-fi comedy is set to hit theatres on August 13. The film`s release date had previously been bumped back three times from an initial release, planned for 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
