Ryan Reynolds Teases Upcoming Movie 'Free Guy' at New York Comic Con!

Ryan Reynolds steps out on stage for the Free Guy panel during New York Comic Con on Thursday afternoon (October 3) at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.

The 42-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-stars Jodie Comer, Lil Rel Howery, Joe Keery, and Utkarsh Ambudkar, as well as director Shawn Levy.

The lucky crowd at the event got to see the first footage from the film, but we won’t get to watch it at home yet.

“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,” Shawn said (via THR). “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.”

“I haven’t been this fully immersed, engaged and pumped [about] something since Deadpool,” Ryan said. “It spoke to the moment in some way.”
