Emma Corrin, renowned for portraying Princess Diana in The Crown, is stepping into the spotlight again as she joins the cast of Marvel and Disney’s highly anticipated Deadpool 3 as a villain. Despite not being a big Marvel fan, Corrin is thrilled to embrace the challenge of playing an antagonist, something she has long been eager to explore. In a recent interview conducted for A Murder at the End of the World prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Corrin expressed her excitement about being part of the complex and intricate comic-book world, acknowledging that she feels fortunate to be a part of it.
Having made a name for herself with her breakout role in Netflix’s The Crown, Corrin’s journey to success continues as she shares the screen with Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, who is reprising his iconic role as Wolverine within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Reynolds announced Corrin’s casting in February, celebrating her addition to the Deadpool family after her acclaimed performance in The Crown.
While Corrin may not have been well-versed in the Marvel universe initially, she is now fascinated by its depth and intricacies. She confesses to having seen only a few of the major releases, such as Spider-Man and Black Panther, but was captivated by the elaborate web of connections, Easter eggs, and interwoven storylines. Her enthusiasm for joining the MCU has grown, and she considers herself lucky to be a part of the phenomenon, particularly Deadpool, for its self-awareness and ability to criticize its own inner workings.
The upcoming Deadpool movie, now under the helm of Marvel Studios after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Studios, holds great promise with its predecessors’ impressive box-office performances. However, filming has been put on hold due to the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike, and fans will have to wait until after the strike is resolved to see Corrin’s portrayal of the villain alongside Reynolds and Jackman on the big screen. Deadpool 3 is slated to hit theaters on May 3, 2024.
