Is Free Guy Connected Elsewhere To The MCU?
New Rockstars theory gives us yet another reason to see Ryan Reynold’s upcoming film…
I’m not gonna lie. I think Ryan Reynolds actually plays himself in most films.
That’s not a shot — there are not many celebrities I’d like to meet more — and I think his work is darn good. However, while I don’t expect the real Reynold’s to be as crass at Deadpool or as dumb as his character in R.I.P.D., I do expect he’s pretty funny in general.
So, when I first saw a trailer for New Guy, I remember thinking “man, this could be a Deadpool movie, minus the swearing and gristle.” And that made sense at the time.
But now, after I wallowing in the wonder that is New Rockstars, I am beginning to think there might be more to the connection.
Possible spoilers ahead…
Still here? Good.
In a recent video, New Rockstars spoke about “Deadpool.” And they wondered aloud whether Noobmaster69 — Thor & co.’s videogame nemesis — is secretly Deadpool.
And, they also speculated as to whether Free Guy is being controlled by Deadpool; thereby connecting the movie with Marvel’s extended universe.
Anyway, that was only one of the fun things to come out of the below video:
FREE GUY Trailer Breakdown! Deadpool NoobMaster69 in MCU?
- Free Guy, the Fortnite-inspired game film starring Ryan Reynolds, has a new trailer that could explain how Deadpool could enter the MCU as NOOBMASTER69 from Avengers Endgame!
- Is Ryan Reynolds’ FREE GUY (2020) the Wreck-It Ralph / Ready Player One type story its trailer suggests it is? Or is there a deeper agenda to the film including firearm confiscation in a deliberately ironic commentary of Reynolds’ roles as Deadpool, which could easily tie Wade Wilson into the MCU by confirming him as NoobMaster69, Korg’s Fortnite enemy in Avengers Endgame?
- Erik Voss breaks down this Free Guy trailer shot by shot for all the gaming Easter Eggs you might have missed. What’s the deeper significance of Taika Waititi’s role in Free Guy?
I am definitely hoping to catch this one.
But, I won’t be alone.
Importantly, New Rockstars replied to the video, adding:
Sure, Ryan Reynolds appearing as Wade Wilson as NoobMaster69 in Free Guy sounds a little nuts… but is it any less insane than JK Simmons returning as J Jonah Jameson in Far From Home? Or Jamie Foxx Electro in Spider-Man 3? Bruce Willis from Unbreakable in the Split post-credit scene? With Disney now owning 20th Century, a Free Guy post-credit scene with RR as Deadpool trolling Thor and Korg on Fortnite wouldn’t just be a fun payoff… it’s a perfectly set-up no-brainer that would be easy to shoot and make this film a MUST-SEE for millions of viewers.
Finally, what do you think of the video/theory? Let us know in the comments.
