Ryan Reynolds narrowly escaped serious injury when a barricade that was holding back hundreds of fans gave way and almost crushed the actor. The 43-year-old star was at CCXP 2019, a Comic-Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil on Saturday to promote his new movie, "Free Guy." The event brought several major Hollywood stars south of the equator including Daisy Ridley and the rest of the "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" cast.
The "Detective Pikachu" star was waving and greeting thousands of screaming fans when he jumped down off the stage to shake a few hands. As soon as he approached the swarming fans, the barricade broke and Reynolds used his impressive reflexes and response time to fling himself out of the way and onto the stage.
