Good morning, sheeple!
~ Antwan's first line as he enters the game studio
Drop in Dude now!
~ Antwan orders his staff to send Dude into the game.
Antwan out!
~ Antwan's last words in the film.

Antwan Hovachelik is the main antagonist of 20th Century Studios' 2021 action-comedy film Free Guy.

He is the egomaniacal and narcissistic CEO of Soonami Games who stole the idealistic codes for the enhancement of the fictional open world video game "Free City".

He was portrayed by Taika Waititi, who also played Viago Heimburg in What We do in the Shadows, Surtur in Thor: Ragnarok, Adolf Hitler in Jojo Rabbit, IG-11 in The Mandalorian and Ratcatcher in The Suicide Squad.

History

Little is known about Antwan other than he is the CEO of Soonami Games and his games had major success. Because of this, he developed an egomaniacal and narcissistic personality.

During the film, Antwan became aware of Guy's popularity and orders his staff to get rid of him in order to turn Free City 2 to a hit.

Antwan orders Keys and Mouser to reboot the entire server, but Keys refuses and gets fired. Guy loses his memory after the reboot, but all of his data is restored after Molotov Girl kisses him.

As Guy and Millie persuades other NPCs in the game that they're more than programming, Antwan attempts to shut down the game, with Keys assisting him. Antwan then sends Dude, a muscular yet dimwitted variant of Guy which is developed for Free City 2 into the game, but Guy is able to befriend him. Antwan personally goes down to the server room and start destroying the servers, but Guy makes it to the island in time. Antwan tries to smash the last server anyway out of spite, but Millie convinces him to return the code and the property to her and Keys by letting him keep the rights to Free City.

In the end of the film, Antwan is arrested for his crimes and the sales of Free City 2 goes downhill. Keys, Mouser, and Millie start a new company with the recovered code to release Free Life, bringing Guy, Buddy and the Free City NPCs into it.

Personality

Antwan is a classic example of a business executive who values profits and intellectual property more than the people who make them. He is arrogant, selfish, cruel, egotistical, apathetic, greedy and ruthless. As the CEO of Soonami, he centers the entire business around himself, whilst doing little to nothing in regards to game development or helping employees with any problems they may have. Not only that, but Antwan tends to claim credit for everything Soonami has done, brushing the actual developers aside. He's also perfectly content with destroying their lives' work if it meant increased profits, as he was planning to do with Free City when the sequel was coming out.

Antwan is so loathsome that he is despised by virtually everyone at Soonami. Mouser, in particular, remained loyal to Antwan but was agitated by his egocentric lifestyle, so much that he warned Keys about his impending first arrival. In his first appearance, he casually fires an employee for no reason other than to amuse himself, showing how little he values Soonami's workers. It's not until Antwan's thievery is exposed that Mouser finally stands up to him and refuses to give him the location of Free City's servers.

Trivia

  • His name was misspelled as Antoine prior to the film's release.
  • Free Guy and The Suicide Squad, both of which Taika Waititi starred in, came out in 2021. In fact, they came out a week apart.
