Warner Bros. has delivered an internet-breaking first-look image of Ryan Gosling as Ken in Greta Gerwig's forthcoming live-action Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie.

As only the second official look at the film ahead of its summer release next year, the team behind Barbie have truly upped the ante; Gosling is inhabiting a Breaker High, '90s return-to-form in this latest sneak peek, as he's pictured sporting a six-pack, an orange spray tan and platinum blonde hair.

Gosling and Robbie will star alongside supporting castmates Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, America Ferrera, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir and Issa Rae, as well as fellow Canadians, Michael Cera and Simu Liu, the latter of whom confirmed his involvement earlier this year. Liu is rumoured to be playing another Ken doll, and his role apparently "involve[s] a lot of dancing." Fun!

Barbie will arrive in theatres on July 21, 2023. Check out Gosling and Robbie in character below.
