Deadpool 3 trailer brought back a huge Marvel character but hardly anyone recognised him

Deadpool 3 trailer brought back a huge Marvel character but hardly anyone recognised him

Fans barely recognised the character in the new trailer

There are a few films that fans cannot wait to hit cinemas this year, and one of them is definitely Deadpool 3, with fans already riled up and ready to watch their favourite celebs in kick-ass action.

Breaking walls (literally) and bringing together multiple universes like never before, if you’re a fan of Marvel then you probably watched the new Deadpool 3 trailer that dropped.

Featuring blood, gore, hilarity and a lot of swearing, Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise his role of the loud-mouth antihero on 26 July this year.

But do you know who won’t return? T.J. Miller.

Miller appeared in the first two films as Weasel, the best friend of Wade Wilson. The actor confirmed on the Jason Nash podcast that he won’t be returning after being treated ‘horribly’ by Reynolds on set though it was agreed to be a misunderstanding.

Even though we won’t see the sidekick there’s plenty more characters coming back to join the cast.

Aaron Stanford is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to step back into the character Pyro for Deadpool’s new addition.

During the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer released during the Super Bowl, fans were teased about his return after portraying Pyro in in X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand.

Wolverine, Deadpool and Pyro all in one movie.

Stanford recently opened up about being asked to join the cast and told Deadline: “I’m very excited to be revisiting this role, and couldn’t think of a better place for Pyro’s resurrection than the Deadpool universe.”

Pyro was a bad ass character in X Men, but it appears that a lot of people didn’t recognise him in the trailer.

On X, users shared their shock at the announcement that Stanford was reprising his role and had been featured in the trailer.

One person wrote: “I totally missed that was him! LFGGGGGG”.

Another shared: “I barely recognized him.”

Others were shocked by Wolverine and Pyro returning to the same film.

A user theorised: “If they’re showing him and wolverine in the marketing for this movie I can’t even imagine what crazy people are coming back to their old roles.”

Although we don’t really know what the plot is going to be about except a little sliver of what’s been shared online regarding Wolverine and Deadpool’s collaboration to take down a big bad, the addition of old faces can only bring good things for the film.

Pyro is set to return to the Marvel universe.

I mean, after electrocuting Brad Pit in Deadpool 2, how are they going to top it?

But director Shawn Levy gave us some hints about what to expect when he told Deadline at last year’s Toronto Film Festival.

Levy said that the film was going to feel ‘grounded’ and ‘real’, something like ‘a descendant of Midnight Run, and 48 Hours, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles’ and not like ‘a descendant of Airplane.’

Even Matthew Vaughn, the filmmaker behind X-Men: First Class told BroBible’s Post-Credit podcast that the scenes he had seen from the film are ‘unbelievable’.

So, we’re in for a treat.

He said: “That’s going to be the jolt… the Marvel universe is about to have a jolt of them and it’s going to bring that body back to life… I think Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are about to save the whole Marvel universe.”
