Deadpool Makes His Pitch to Enter the MCU in Hilarious “Free Guy” Reaction Video

Well, Deadpool’s back, and he’s brought a friend in a 4-minute plus reaction video to the Free Guy trailer. Watching Reynolds parody the trailer reaction videos in which someone watches a trailer or a music video and emotes, grandly, for the enjoyment of their viewers is funny enough. Only here, Reynolds is doing that for a movie he’s in, via his most famous character from another movie, and he’s upped the ante by bringing along a friend–Thor: Ragnarok‘s lovable rock monster, Korg (voiced by Taika Waititi). Now, Waititi co-stars in Free Guy (you following this?), and is also of course the director of Thor: Ragnarok and the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. Korg is the perfect, pleasant accompaniment to Deadpool’s perpetual snark. For every lacerating Deadpool barb, Korg has something cheerful to say. Get these two their own Disney+ series!

The fun here is Deadpool’s best-of-class quips, but as ever, he desperately wants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and asks for Korg’s advice on how to make that happen. Korg’s here to help (he advises Deadpool to check his email), and you can probably imagine how well the Merc with the Mouth responded to this.

If you were looking to start your Wednesday off with something absurd and funny, here you go. As for Free Guy, director Shawn Levy’s film is about a man named Guy (Reynolds) who finds out he’s an NPC (nonplayer character) in an open-world video game and is finally going to become the main player in his own life. The film premieres in theaters on August 13. To watch the trailer—via Deadpool and Korg’s reactions—check out the video below.
