Ryan Reynolds is no stranger to going a bit meta; after all, Deadpool 2's end credits see him playing himself reading the final Green Lantern script (a film starring Reynolds that was far from successful with critics and fans), before he appears as Deadpool and apparently shoots himself.
And he's now bent our minds even more by apparently accidentally making an extra cameo in his new movie, in a shot he wasn't supposed to be in.
Reynolds stars in new Netflix action movie 6 Underground, directed by Michael Bay, and it turns out that he might have appeared in one more scene than he was supposed to.
Back when he was filming the movie in Italy in September 2018 the actor shared a video of himself on Instagram, in which he leaned against a wall in a street and chatted to his followers about the shoot.
"Best part about shooting with Michael Bay?" he said in the video. "I don't know. A lot of people would say the action, but for me, it's the stillness. Those quiet moments" – before a high-speed car chase drowns him out.
And it seems that his fun Instagram video may in fact have made it into the final cut of the film.
As pointed out on a Reddit page called MovieDetails, if you pause the movie 14 minutes and 42 seconds in, you can spot a man standing against a wall in the background - and the scene looks very similar to the one in the background of Reynolds' Instagram video, with a black car being flipped into the air.
Is this just further proof that the actor loves to mess with us all in unexpected ways?
6 Underground follows six untraceable agents, each of whom is the very best at what they do, who decide to go totally off-grid and erase their pasts to form an elite task-force to help save the world.
Reynolds stars as One, the mastermind behind the plot who then recruits the rest of his team – spy Two (Mélanie Laurent), hitman Three (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), parkour runner Four (Ben Hardy), doctor Five (Adria Arjona) and driver Six (Dave Franco), later adding sniper Seven (Corey Hawkins).
6 Underground is now available to watch on Netflix.
