Hugh Jackman strikes again!

The first trailer and poster for Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming movie Free Guy were released yesterday, giving us the first look at Reynolds as Guy, a non-player character in the open-world video game Free City, which was based on a combination of Grand Theft Auto and Fortnite. The movie also stars Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Taika Waititi.

Sometime after the Free Guy poster was released, Jackman posted a hilarious fan-edited version on Instagram, featuring himself as the leading man, along with the caption, “A small edit to make this a much better promotional tool. Thank you @Karthik_nj #repost” As you might expect given the history between these two frienemies, after seeing altered version posted by Jackman, Reynolds quickly and jokingly responded with, “What the s&$t?!?”

Check out the altered Free Guy poster below.
