Check out this new featurette that has been released for Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming video game-inspired action movie Free Guy and it revealed a new character in the film named Dude.
Dude is a super buff version of Ryan Reynolds’ character Guy, and the two end up facing off against each other in the film. It’s insane, and I’m shocked that they didn’t save this reveal for the movie!
The promo is hilarious as Reynolds talks about the lengths that he went through to get this huge for the movie. He mentions drinking “Protein Bombs” that are made of “100% human muscle” and because of this, he no longer fits into his Deadpool costume. He also jokes around about how he fathered his youngest daughter while he was this buff and shares that his wife Blake Lively gave a fully-grown human baby.
The story is about a bank teller named Guy who “discovers he is actually a background player in an open-world video game and…decides to become the hero of his own story…one he rewrites himself. Now in a world where there are no limits, he is determined to be the guy who saves his world his way…before it is too late.”
Free Guy was directed by Shawn Levy (Stranger Things), and it will be released on August 13th, 2021.
