Pyro appears in a single shot of the first «Deadpool & Wolverine» trailer, perching on a platform of some kind next to an armored soldier. «God, I love this part,» he says, almost growling, before the trailer cuts away. For right now, it’s hard to guess what exactly his role in the story will be. Presumably, he’ll be a villain once again, as he seems to be leading the mysterious crew of wasteland combatants glimpsed in a couple of other shots.
One thing that does stand out is Pyro’s outfit, which, while much more conservative, still evokes his comic book looks. The red-on-yellow color palette from the comics is muted here, but the effect comes through, and he wears a pair of goggles that will remind longtime fans of his various masks.
We’ll have to wait and see just how big Pyro’s role will ultimately be when «Deadpool & Wolverine» premieres in theaters on July 26. Regardless, though, it’s great to see Aaron Stanford back in the role.
