"Well, if everyone says so," Reynolds wrote in the caption. "#FreeGuy is in theaters. Cool stuff happens." He concluded the post by adding, "Unrelated, did Joe Keery delete his Instagram account? I can’t tag him."

Many celebs and fans took to the comments section to congratulate the actor on the recent success.

Canadian former ice hockey player, Hayley Wickenheiser wrote, "Congrats Ryan" while actor Liam Hemsworth liked the post.

One of the fans commented, "Avengers scene SENTT ME i nearly screamed in theaters" while another fan replied to his question about Keery's account, "He doesn't show up for me either, and I'd like to think it's because he just blocked both of us."

"Free Guy" is a light-hearted action-comedy movie that explored the boundary between the real and the virtual world. The "Deadpool" star portrayed a Blue Shirt Guy in the movie who is basically an anti-hero character.

Considering the COVID-19 situation, David A. Gross, who runs consulting firm Franchise Entertainment Research told AFP, "This is a very good opening under difficult conditions. The Delta variant is taking a toll."

The movie earned $28.4 million during its opening weekend in North America. The movie earned $51 million globally. Reynolds took to Twitter on Sunday to announce that Disney confirmed the sequel to "Free Guy."

"Aaaannnnd after 3 years messaging #FreeGuy as an original IP movie, Disney confirmed today they officially want a sequel. Woo hoo!! #irony."

The actor jokingly replied to his own tweet on the same day and wrote, "If it isn’t called, “Albuquerque Boiled Turkey” we’ve failed."

Reynolds will be next seen in the action-comedy movie, "Red Notice," which is directed and penned by Rawson Marshall Thurber. The movie also stars Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot.
