The veteran artist will end his run with the spinoff series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Following his retirement announcement, he has now opened up on the matter and has revealed the reason behind his decision.
In a conversation with Joining All Movement on YouTube, Aaron Toney said that stunts are a young man and woman’s game. He remembers being the young 25-year-old kid in the room. The artist recalled his time on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, where he was the youngest kid and everyone was like, ‘Who are you?’ and he was just bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. He mentioned that they were like, ‘Is this your first job?’ and were telling people that it was ‘this kid’s’ first job. He noted that being on that project was life-changing, it was great and a blessing for him.

He said that doing The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and being the older guy in the room and seeing the young kids is like seeing David Warren in the room. He called the kids’ work amazing. The stunt performer stated that it was serendipitous because it was so beautiful.
He mentioned that he went, ‘Wow, 15 years ago I was the young guy. Now I’m the old guy in the room,’ on the sets of the Marvel series. It is the major reason why he retired from Marvel. Toney asserted that if he continues to be the old guy in the room, he would love it, but he thinks it is time for him to go as Falcon double. He noted that he threw everything that he ever wanted to do at this character. He pushed himself for the project and has no regrets.
