Deadpool 3 Has Cast Emma Corrin As Its Villain

Deadpool / Emma Corrin

It’s a very good week for Emma Corrin. Yesterday, The Crown’s original Diana (from Season 4 of the Netflix royal drama) was added to the growing cast of Robert Eggers’ hugely-anticipated Nosferatu – and now, they’ve added another role to their increasingly busy upcoming slate. If Corrin had to play posh as Diana, they’ll be likely channelling something very different (and much more foul-mouthed) as the latest cast addition for Deadpool 3.

According to Deadline, Corrin has joined the production and is set to play the villain – though, it’s currently unknown who that villain will be. In fact, all details on Deadpool 3 are scant for now. All we know is that it’ll be the first Deadpool film officially set in the MCU, with Shawn Levy on board as director and Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick returning on script duties (though an initial draft was penned by Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin). It goes without saying that Ryan Reynolds will once again be the Merc With A Mouth – and, as he revealed in an internet-breaking video last year, he’s bringing with him Hugh Jackman, making his return to playing Wolverine (after giving the character a perfect, emotional send-off in Logan).

Expect this casting to continue to rocket Corrin’s rising profile – since they starred on The Crown, Corrin has acted opposite Harry Styles in My Policeman, and is currently on stage in London in a theatre production of Orlando. Swearing up a storm in Deadpool 3 and creeping around for Eggers’ Nosferatu, after playing literal royalty? That’s range.
