Ever since Disney bought Fox fans have been waiting to see what's next for Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool. Disney has been publicly in favor of keeping that franchise going, but how the R-rated character would fit into the family-friendly Marvel Cinematic Universe, was far from clear. But now, it's sort of happened. Deadpool has made an appearance alongside another MCU character in a new video. Deadpool, and Thor: Ragnarok's Korg are doing a reaction video for Reynolds' new film Free Guy. Welcome to what happens when brand synergy eats its own tail.
But it has to be said, this video is hilarious. The two characters are doing a classic YouTube "reaction video" to the Free Guy trailer. Deadpool is snide and sarcastic just how we remember him. Korg is hilariously slow on the uptake. Free Guy already looked like a funny movie but it gets even better with these two watching the trailer. Check it out.
This video is everything you'd expect from Deadpool in what is essentially his first real appearance under the Disney banner. He makes a series of jokes at the expense of Disney and the purchase of Fox by the company, which is the reason Free Guy is getting this odd brand cooperation. He even calls out Deadpool 2 and its decision to "fridge" a character. At the end, he actually talks a bit of smack about Ryan Reynolds, implying that Free Guy is part of the reason we haven't seen Deadpool 3 yet.
As the video itself points out, the inclusion of Korg here wasn't a random decision purely for comedic purposes. Taika Waititi, who voices Korg, has a role in Free Guy, and clearly somebody saw that these two had Marvel connections and had the idea to bring it all together to promote Ryan Reynolds' new film. Whether this is brilliance or insanity is still unclear. The fact is that only Disney would even be capable of putting something like this together. You have to own...everything, in order to get Marvel characters to appear in a promo for a 20th Century Studios film that takes shots at Disney+.
Of course, this video isn't exactly MCU "canon" but it does give us a pretty good idea of just what Deadpool in the MCU might actually look like. There are a few points where Deadpool's language needs to be bleeped, but for the most part he keeps it PG-13. One could certainly imagine that if Deadpool actually met Korg in a movie, their interactions would go pretty much like this. Of course, now I want Korg to appear in Deadpool 3. Korg needs to become Deadpool's new sidekick.
All this was done to bring more attention to Free Guy, and it's a safe bet that, as far as that goes, it will probably work. Fans of the MCU and Deadpool are going to love to watch this and it might very well get people to go check out the new comedy who otherwise might not have done so. Free Guy opens August 13.

Together, the two make a “reaction video” parody video, where they watch the trailer for the movie, and snarkily comment along. You can watch the full hilarious Free Guy “reaction video,” featuring the voices of Ryan Reynolds and Taika Waititi, right here.
And here, we all thought that Pietro in WandaVision was going to be the first X-Men universe/MCU crossover. But nope, it was this promo video for a non-Marvel based film. So of all the MCU characters who could have interacted with Deadpool first, why Korg? Well, the voice of Korg, Taika Waititi is actually in Free Guy. So that’s your answer right there.
In his trademark fashion, Deadpool finds a way to mock not just the movie he’s there to promote, but also the recent success of the MCU on Disney+. He even takes shots at Deadpool 2. And he cracks a joke that Free Guy is just something leftover from a “fire sale” after Disney bought 20th Century Studios from Fox. Ouch. There might be a little truth to that wisecrack. It still looks like a fun movie regardless of said Fire Sale though.
In any event, this actually makes us long for an official Deadpool/Korg meeting on the big screen. At some point, Deadpool 3 is going to be a reality. Why not team him up with a bunch of random minor characters from the MCU? Korg can be there. Maybe resurrect the Warriors Three from the Thor franchise. They really deserved better.
Free Guy hits theaters exclusively on August 13.

On Tuesday, Ryan Reynolds published a video on his YouTube channel. In the video, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Korg (Taika Waititi) react to the trailer for the upcoming 20th Century Studios film Free Guy. Reynolds and Waititi happen to star opposite one another in the movie, which they play up in the reaction video. It’s genuinely very funny, and should intrigue Marvel fans:
Korg was one of the breakout stars of Thor: Ragnarok, teaming up with the Asgardian near the end of the movie. In addition to directing the movie, Taika Waititi also voiced Korg. This is the first time we’ve seen the alien creature since Avengers: Endgame. It’s also the first time that we’ve seen Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool interacting with an MCU character. Of course, Disney owns Free Guy after buying Fox, so this is really just a clever marketing scheme. Nevertheless, the conversation at the end of the video directly references Deadpool’s future in the MCU.
Some of the best jokes in the video revolve around Disney+. Deadpool says that Korg was not his first choice, but everyone else was too busy over on the streaming service.
“You have a Disney+ show, don’t you, f***face?” is also up there near the top. All jokes aside, the fact that Disney let Reynolds make this at all shows its commitment to the character. Deadpool 3 might not be out next year, but this is the best sign yet that it’s in the works.
It’s been seven months since the second season finale of The Mandalorian came out on Disney+, and while everyone agreed to respect the concerns of the spoiler-phobic at the time, Disney has announced a new Disney Gallery behind-the-scenes special that will reveal all of the secrets of Din Djarin’s climactic confrontation with Moff Gideon and his Dark Troopers—not to mention the eventual fate of little Grogu, whose magic blood hopefully has nothing to do with The Rise Of Skywalker.
