Ryan Reynolds has released a new video of himself as Deadpool, talking about the actor's favorite subject: Ryan Reynolds. The nearly five-minute clip has Deadpool teaming up with actor-director Taika Waititi as as Korg from Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame doing a reaction video for Reynold's upcoming Free Guy, which is due in theaters on August 13.

The video, which Reynolds uploaded to both Twitter and YouTube, has a teasing caption describing it as "two members of the MCYouTube react to the upcoming film Free Guy." While this framing is certain to drive plenty of wild speculation--it's Deadpool's first official crossover appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe--it is worth tempering future rumors and speculation by stating that while Waititi and Reynolds do both star in Free Guy, they're in completely different roles. Check out the video below to enjoy all the meta goodness, which mocks the movie's repeated delays, tropes of movie criticism, and Disney+.

Free Guy stars Reynolds as Guy, an NPC in a violent video game who becomes aware of the world around him and breaks free of his NPC life. Waititi plays Antoine, the game's publisher who wants to shut down the entire game due to the ensuing chaos caused by Guy no longer sticking to the script. The film also stars Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) and Joe Keery (Stranger Things).

The movie is directed by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things), and the first trailer arrived in December 2019. It will finally hit theaters on August 13.
