Shawn Levy is directing the sequel with Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the writers of the first two films, penning the script. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin also wrote a previous draft of the script.
Deadpool 3 will be the first Deadpool film produced under the Marvel Studios banner after the first two films were produced at 20th Century Fox, with Marvel’s Kevin Feige working alongside Reynolds and the rest of the production team.
Corrin portrayed Lady Diana Spencer in Season 4 of the hit Netflix series, The Crown. The role earned them a Primetime Emmy Award nomination in 2021. Corrin also earned a Golden Globe Award and Critics Choice Award for their performance. They also appeared in the 2022 Amazon drama, My Policemen and the 2022 Netflix feature Lady Chatterly’s Lover.

It will be interesting to see what character that Levy, Reynolds, Feige, and the writers have in mind for Corrin.
Deadpool 2 introduced Cable and a more faithful interpretation of The Juggernaut to the big screen. It will be interesting to see if Deadpool 3 brings another famous Marvel villain from the comics to the forefront who Corrin will portray.
