Emma Corrin is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
The actor, who portrays Princess Diana in The Crown, has been cast alongside Ryan Reynolds in the third instalment of Deadpool.
Ryan, who hasn’t yet confirmed whether he’s welcomed his fourth child with Blake Lively, cheekily shared the news on social media:
“A new addition to the family! The Deadpool family, for clarity. Which is just like a real family except with less swearing… Welcome, Emma Corrin!”

Emma also reacted to the news on their Instagram writing, “I actually tried out for @wrexham_afc, but they put me in Deadpool instead?? HOLY SH**!!!” (They’re, of course, referring to the Welsh football club Ryan co-owns.)
“Beyond honoured to join this bonkers family.”

Shawn Levy, who worked with Ryan on Free Guy and The Adam Project, will be directing Deadpool 3. Plus, it was confirmed last year that Hugh Jackman would be onboard for the project too!
