Who Is the Villain in ‘Deadpool 3?’ Casting Rumors, Explained
Fans are eagerly waiting for any news about it Deadpool 3. We already know we’ll see a few familiar faces from Fox’s X-Men movies, thanks to director Shawn Levy’s subtle teases, but what do we know about the movie’s villain?
While we don’t know much about the upcoming sequel we do have some clues that allow for a pretty solid guess as to who the villain is.
Do we know who is playing the villain?
It was announced back in February that Emma Corrin had been cast in an antagonist role for the film. Corrin is best known for playing Princess Diana in the Netflix series, The Crown. Although the details of their character are still largely under wraps, fans are given plenty to speculate about.
So who do fans think Emma Corrin will play?
Cassandra Nova is the current front runner in the minds of many fans. Nova first appeared in 2001 and was revealed to be Charles Xavier’s twin sister. It makes sense to use her as a villain for the film because Marvel has full access to Fox’s character roster so it’s likely he’ll want to bring in a few X-Men. What better way to establish Xavier and his School for Young People in the MCU than to introduce a villain directly related to him and the other X-Men?
We know that Hugh Jackman is back as Wolverine and Famke Janssen is rumored to be back as Jean Grey, both of these characters are involved in Nova’s story in the comics. If Jean Gray is indeed returning, it lends some credence to the theory that Corrin will be playing Cassandra Nova.
Who else could Emma Corrin play?
Some have speculated that Corrin could be Death, a character from the comics who is a little infatuated with Deadpool, (mainly because he can’t die). She’s a lot like the grim reaper of the Marvel Comics Universe, Thanos is also in love with her in the comics, with her obsession driving him to kill half the universe (yes, that was his original motivation).
Death hasn’t really been done in the MCU yet, perhaps because it’s difficult enough to film such a character and concept. The MCU is wacky, but not that wacky, (at least not yet).
Will there be other villains in Deadpool 3?
Superhero movies often shake it up by giving us multiple villains in one movie, sometimes it works (Spider-Man: There’s No Way Home) and sometimes not (Spider-man 3). With all these new characters, Marvel might want to surprise us with a few more baddies. Although Corrin is the main antagonist we hope to see some familiar faces like Magneto, Ian McKellen’s return is already rumored so we will have to wait and see.
