‘The Crown’ star Emma Corrin has joined the cast of both Marvel’s third ‘Deadpool’ film starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman.

Details are being kept under wraps but it is said that Corrin will play the lead villain character in the project.

Shawn Levy, who made ‘Free Guy’ and ‘The Adam Project’ with Reynolds, is directing ‘Deadpool 3,’ which will officially join the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned the first two ‘Deadpool’ films, returned to write the third. Reese has previously confirmed that ‘Deadpool 3’ will remain R-rated, even within the family-friendly MCU.

Further plot specifics for the highly anticipated feature are under wraps. Filming on that begins later this year ahead of a November 2024 release date in cinemas.

Before that Corrin has already lined up another part in ‘The Northman’ and ‘The Lighthouse’ director Eggers’ ‘Nosferatu’ which begins filming next month in Europe for Focus Features. Bill Skarsgård will play an ancient, nocturnal Transylvanian vampire count who desires Lily Rose-Depp’s, haunted young woman.
