Deadpool 3 Adds The Crown Star As Its Villain


Deadpool 3 production updates that Emma Corrin, star of the television series The Crown, joins Marvel Studios first R-Rated movie as its villain. The studio slates the movie for a September 6, 2024 release and production has shared close to zero hints as to how far the development of the movie is coming along, let alone the start of principal shooting.

Rumours about various actors supposedly doing cameos, such as Chris Hemsworth, Brad Pitt, Tom Hiddleston and Chris Evans have come and gone. Quite a number of Marvel characters have also surfaced online as rumoured to appear in the movie, like Spider-Man in light of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which may or may not include the three spideys, the Hulk, Fantastic Four’s Human Torch and even more than a handful of X-Men.

However, we are still left with just the video Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman shared about what the movie will be like. This definitely promises to be a fun ride, and the movie will have everything Deadpool in it. Kevin Feige even reiterated that the movie would retain its R-Rating, making it Marvel’s first.

Deadline reports that the multi-award-winning and Primetime Emmy nominee Emma Corrin is now part of the much-awaited buddy-movie from Marvel Studios. The actor is officially on board as the movie’s villain, whose specific character is still under wraps.

The actor, identifying with pronouns they/them, is taking up the fourth spot in the list of the official cast. Apart from Reynolds and Jackman, only Leslie Uggams’ Blind Al is on the official list. Perhaps, Wade truly can’t do without his favourite roommate.

As the studio is notorious for keeping its secrets in a molecular seal, unless the movie includes a web-slinging character, the story remains a mystery. The plot, the premise, is anybody’s guess.

At the moment, fans are only speculating that Corrin will either be Typhoid Mary or Lady Deathstrike. But then, given the fact that Deadpool 3 is in the MCU phase that is already deep in its multiverse narrative, the possibility of presenting a gender-bend version of another formidable Deadpool villain is not an impossibility.

Corrin’s first acting performance was in 2017, with Cesare as Mica. Followed by the 2018 short Alex’s Dream as Beth. They began their television career with Grantchester as Esther Carter, then in Pennyworth as Esme Winikus. It was in 2020 with Misbehaviour as Jillian Jessup and especially The Crown as Princess Diana that they captured the attention of critics and audiences alike.

More recent works from them are Anna X, Ten Percent, Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Toronto International Film Festival winner of the Tribute Award for Performance, My Policeman, just last year.

Aside from Deadpool 3, Corrin will appear in Nosferatu as Anna Harding. They have also wrapped filming as Darby Hart in an upcoming TV mini-series titled Retreat.

Meanwhile, the upcoming Deadpool sequel promises to maintain the ‘mature’ comedy it has been known for, as the movie keeps Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese as its writers. New to the franchise but certainly not new at working with Reynolds is Shawn Levy, who will be at the helm of the film. Feige, Levy and Reynolds have producer credits.

Time and again, Marvel assures fans that the third instalment of the movie about the Merc with a Mouth would keep the rating he is well-loved for. This will be the first Deadpool movie under the MCU ever since Disney got Fox. Naturally, people have expectations and among these are certain characters that can now be utilized thanks to the Multiverse from Phase 4.
