Ryan Reynolds is known for his humor and sarcasm, especially on social media. This time though, he’s using his snark to confirm the news of a Free Guy sequel.
The actor took to Twitter over the weekend to announce that Disney has confirmed the development of Free Guy 2. This news comes with a bit of irony for Reynolds as he notes in the tweet that this film was initially pitched as an original piece and not based on a pre-existing media property. It looks like it won’t stay that way, and now Free Guy is the exact franchise Disney mocked in their marketing.
The news of a sequel comes as no surprise as the film dominated its first weekend at the box office, bringing in over $25 million domestically. It was also met with praise by critics and received an A rating on CinemaScore.
