“Deadpool 3” Adds Emma Corrin to Cast Alongside Ryan Reynolds & Hugh Jackman
Emma Corrin has landed a major role in Deadpool 3 alongside Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman. Deadline has the scoop that The Crown season four star (she played Lady Diana Spencer) will play the villain in the movie, although details about her character are being kept under wraps. It’s a major coup, both for Corrin and for director Shawn Levy and the Deadpool 3 team, and both will benefit mightily from the connection.
Deadpool 3 is the first film in the franchise to be released directly by Marvel Studios (the first two films were under the 20th Century Fox banner) and is already the source of a ton of fan excitement over Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine. Deadpool reports that Marvel has been eyeing Corrin for a while now, and after working out scheduling details, the deal seems to be done. Corrin won a Golden Globe and Critics Choice award for her work in The Crown and picked up an Emmy and SAG nomination, too. Corrin recently starred in Amazon’s My Policeman and the Sony and Netflix co-production Lady Chatterley’s Lover.
Deadpool 3 will find Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with the Mouth coming into contact, at long last, with Wolverine (Reynolds has been courting Jackman for years), with Levy directing from a script by longtime Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Levy has already promised fans of the first two films that Deadpool 3 will be as hardcore as ever, and adding a talent like Corrin in the villain role only adds to the intrigue surrounding Marvel Studios’ first full dance with one of the most absurd and beloved characters in their stable.
