Deadline: ‘Deadpool 3’: Emma Corrin Lands Lead Role In Marvel Studios Sequel

EXCLUSIVE: Following the news that Hugh Jackman would be reprising his Wolverine role in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3, Ryan Reynolds looks to have found his next co-star. Sources tell Deadline that breakout The Crown star Emma Corrin has joined the cast. Details behind the character are unknown other than they will play the villain.

Shawn Levy is on board to direct with Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese returning to pen the script. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin penned a previous draft. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will join Reynolds and Levy as producers.

This will mark the first Deadpool film in which Marvel Studios will work hand in hand with Reynolds and Team Deadpool. Feige’s involvement comes after he helped revamp the Spider-Man franchise when he came on to help in the creative effort for that Sony series.

Marvel has had its eye on Corrin going all the way back to the holidays, but working out what has become a busy schedule for the Emmy nominee had to be overcome before they could fully commit. Arrangements were settled during the past week, and Corrin is on board.

Corrin is best known for the role of Lady Diana Spencer in Season 4 of the Netflix’s The Crown, earning Golden Globe and Critics Choice awards as well SAG and Emmy nominations. Even though they would not appear in the most recent season, Corrin was hard to miss in 2022, with the Amazon drama My Policeman premiering at the Toronto Film Festival and the Netflix-Sony co-production of Lady Chatterley’s Lover bowing at Telluride.

Corrin can be seen onstage at the Garrick Theatre in London’s West End starring in Orlando, Neil Bartlett’s new adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s modern masterpiece and directed by Michael Grandage. They also recently signed on to the A-list ensemble of Robert Eggers’ Nosferatu, which also stars Lily Rose-Depp, Bill Skarsgard and Nicholas Hoult.

Corrin also recently wrapped production on the FX limited series Retreat.

IndieWire: Emma Corrin Was Shocked by How Much ‘Hate’ They Received Coming Out as Non-Binary

The “Crown” Emmy nominee recently landed a villain role in Marvel Studios’ “Deadpool 3.”

Emma Corrin’s coming-out in 2021 was not without its stumbles.

The actor, who uses they/them pronouns, was recently featured in Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue alongside other up-and-coming generational talents. In the interview, Corrin discussed how the process of coming out as non-binary in spring 2021 led to difficult revelations about being an openly queer person in Hollywood.

At the time, Corrin publicly changed their pronouns and spoke about wearing a chest binder, but they told Vanity Fair that they didn’t notify their team the announcement was coming.

“I might have [messaged them] over WhatsApp and just said, ‘I’m going to post this,’” Corrin said. “I don’t think there was any big discussion about it.”

However, Corrin said, “Naively, maybe, it took me aback how much hate I got for that. It was quite a reality check. But for a lot of people, it did help. Especially around conversation of gender and stuff, it does help a lot of people to see someone living as a nonbinary person in the world. I know how much other people’s accounts helped me, that’s my motivation for keeping my social media at the moment.”

Corrin also spoke about playing feminine roles like Princess Diana on “The Crown,” which earned them an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy nomination in 2021, and more recently leading “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” also on Netflix. They said they’re certainly open to playing male roles in the future. Corrin was most recently cast as a villain in Marvel Studios’ “Deadpool 3” opposite Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman.

“There aren’t a lot of nonbinary parts out there,” Corrin said. “My experience on this earth has been a female one, up until recently, and I still love all those parts of me. It’s interesting that I’m not offered male parts, but I would equally be drawn to that! I suppose it’s also what the industry sees you as, and I think, hopefully, that is shifting… I would love to play nonbinary, new parts, male parts. Anything, as long as it’s right.”

Corrin’s remarks come at a time both challenging and liberating for queer storytelling and performers in the film and TV space. In a recent GQ UK interview, “The Last of Us” star Bella Ramsey, who came out as non-binary in January, spoke out on vitriolic reactions to the HBO series’ LGBTQ storylines and characters: “I know people will think what they want to think. But they’re gonna have to get used to it. If you don’t want to watch the show because it has gay storylines, because it has a trans character, that’s on you, and you’re missing out.”
