Last February, it was announced that Emma Corrin had joined the cast of Disney/Marvel’s “Deadpool 3.”
Corrin is best known for starring in The Crown, Pennyworth and FX’s upcoming series A Murder at the End of the World. In a recent interview with Empire, while promoting the new series A Murder at the End of the World, Corrin reveals that she will play a villain in “Deadpool 3.”
Please note, Emma completed this interview before the strike and it is an interview about A MURDER AT THE END OF THE WORLD.
You can see what the actress said below:
“I feel really excited to play a villain. I haven’t done that, and it’s an itch I want to scratch.”
“I’d heard about the project but, classic Marvel, they couldn’t tell me anything about it. Absolutely nothing. Zilch. So I met [Shawn] being like, ‘I don’t know what this is about.’”
“Hands up, I’m not a Marvel person. I’ve watched ‘Spider-Man’ and ‘Black Panther.’ I was like, ‘Look, you’re gonna have to debrief me into this.’ It’s such an intricate world. There’s so much to it, it’s an absolute mindfuck. All the language and the Easter eggs, and this person is related to that person who did this, and this person came back and this person’s dead… it’s amazing. I really understand why it means as much as it does to so many people. It’s a phenomenon, and I feel really lucky to be part of it. Especially ‘Deadpool,’ because I love the fact that it’s self-aware, and critical of its own inner-workings.”
In “Deadpool 3,” a weary Wolverine finds himself recovering from his injuries when he comes across a loudmouth Deadpool who has time traveled forward to heal his greatest pal in the hopes to befriend the wild beast and to team up to take down a foe they both have in common.
