Emma Corrin Joining MCU as Deadpool 3 Villain.

The Crown's Emma Corrin will make their Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Deadpool 3 as a villain opposite Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman.

Very little about Corrin’s character is currently known, though THR is reporting that they will be the villain of the film, pitting them against Reynold's Deadpool and Jackman's Wolverine.

Corrin is known for The Crown, with their work as Princess Diana earning an Emmy nomination. They have also delved into the comic book space before with work on the Batman TV prequel Pennyworth and appeared in the Harry Styles feature My Policeman.

The first two Deadpool films were made at 20th Century Fox, and brought the character and Reynolds to new levels of popularity. The property moved over to Disney following the company’s acquisition of Fox, and the new installment will be the first R-rated film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney has set a release date of Nov. 8, 2024 for the feature.

The new film is luring Jackman out of retirement as Wolverine. The actor, who previously stated that 2017’s Logan would be his final time wearing the claws, surprised with an announcement in late September that he was returning.

In his post, Reynolds didn’t reveal which character Corrin will be playing, and also didn’t mention if the actor will play a human or a mutant. We’ll have to wait a little more to find out, but that information is certainly going to hit us sooner rather than later since the movie goes into principal photography soon.
