From Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Benedict Cumberbatch to Aaron Paul now, Marvel has provided us with the best of acting. No! we will never believe Robert is not Iron Man in the real world.
After the end of Marvel’s infinity saga with Avengers: Endgame in 2019, the Marvel Universe has shifted to Phase IV and V and fans have witnessed the introduction of several new characters into the mainstream like the Eternals, Ms. Marvel, Shang-Chi, etc.
Marvel is yet to disclose Aaron’s role in their upcoming projects but seeing his superstardom, we can expect him to get a much more significant character to bring to life from the comics. According to you, which side will his intense acting choose? The Good Guys or The Bad ones? The article will give you everything about Aaron Paul and his assumed role in MCU.
Who is Aaron Paul?
Aaron Paul is a 42-year-old American actor who is rated as one of the best actors of his generation. His popularity boomed with his role as Jesse Pinkman in the AMC series, Breaking Bad. The actor has garnered several accolades including the Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries, or Television Film in 2013 and the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2014.
He is also one of the two actors who have won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series thrice. Aaron is currently married to Lauren Parsekian and is blessed with 2 children. He has been working on several upcoming projects that are from big production houses and Marvel’s addition to this list has boomed his popularity globally. Since Breaking Bad came as one of the most appreciated series worldwide, there is no stopping for Paul and he has become a popular brand in the industry.
Aaron Has Given Many Critically Acclaimed Performances!
Aaron made his film debut in 1999 with The Last House on the Left, followed by several supporting roles in film and television. In the early 2000s, he also featured in multiple songs including Everlast’s “White Trash Beautiful” and Korn’s “Thoughtless”. In 2007, he had a recurring role as Scott Quittman on the HBO television series Big Love and co-starred in the 2008 film Need for Speed.
In 2009, Paul began starring in Breaking Bad as Jesse Pinkman, for which he won four Primetime Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe Award. Since then, he has been one of the most famous Television personalities and has also worked in the Apple TV+ series “Truth Be Told” in 2019-20. His contribution to The Path (2016-18) and Black Mirror (2017) has been well appreciated by critics and his dedicated fan base.
Aaron’s Role in MCU
Okay! So we have multiple assumptions for characters that can be given to Aaron Paul. The first one is Nova that has been in the talk for Marvel Studios as the writer of Moonknight, Sabir Pirzada has been taken on board to write the script for Nova. Marvel keeps most of its things secret and we have no clues about how this project will launch, either as a series or a movie. Paul will be an awesome choice for the role of Richard Rider.
The classy and badass acting of Paul is suitable for the sarcastic character of Johnny Storm, who is more popularly known as the Human Torch. He can also be presented as the new Ghost Rider But there are also chances of him entering Marvel as Bullseye. Charlie Cox has proven himself as the most suitable for the role of the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen aka Daredevil and MCU is currently working on a new series for him too.
The comics have presented Bullseye as one of the most powerful villains for Daredevil and Paul is the perfect actor to revive this character and torture Matthew Murdock throughout the series. Charlie vs Aaron will surely confuse us on which side to choose. Let’s hope Marvel breaks this suspense and tells us where they are going to place this super-talented actor.
