Actor Aaron Stanford to Reprise Role as Pyro in New MCU Film

Aaron Stanford is set to make a comeback in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as Pyro, a character he previously portrayed in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. The exciting news was revealed in the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer that premiered during the Superbowl on Sunday. Stanford expressed his enthusiasm for revisiting the role, stating, “I couldn’t think of a better place for Pyro’s resurrection than the Deadpool universe.”

While specific details about the plot of the film remain under wraps, director Shawn Levy has shared some insight into the overall tone of the movie. He aims for the film to feel “grounded” and “real,” drawing inspiration from classic buddy comedies like Midnight Run, 48 Hours, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles. This approach suggests a departure from the more over-the-top comedic style of films like Airplane.

In an appearance on BroBible’s Post-Credit podcast, filmmaker Matthew Vaughn, known for his work on X-Men: First Class, praised the upcoming film. Vaughn mentioned that he has seen snippets of the movie that are “unbelievable,” hinting at an exciting and fresh take on the Marvel universe. He went on to express his confidence that actors Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman will deliver a standout performance that will have a significant impact on the Marvel franchise as a whole.

Aaron Stanford’s return to the MCU follows his recent work in Paramount’s Finestkind, where he starred alongside notable actors such as Ben Foster, Clayne Crawford, Jenna Ortega, and Tommy Lee Jones. Stanford has also made a name for himself with prominent roles in television series like Syfy’s 12 Monkeys, CW’s Nikita, and ABC’s Traveler. His diverse career includes recurring appearances on hit shows like HBO’s Perry Mason, AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead, and NBC’s Third Watch.

While Stanford has showcased his versatility as an actor in a range of projects, he is perhaps best known for his portrayal of the mutant Pyro in the X-Men franchise. His contributions to films like The Hills Have Eyes, Tadpole, Hollywood Ending, and 25th Hour have solidified his reputation as a talented and dynamic performer in the industry. Stanford is represented by Global Artists Agency and Luber Roklin, highlighting his continued presence in the entertainment world.
