‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Supervillain Revealed – Emma Corrin’s Role Has Deep X-Men Ties


The buzz around Deadpool & Wolverine reached new heights with the trailer amassing 365 million views in its first day.

Amidst this anticipation, speculation has been confirmed: Emma Corrin is set to play Cassandra Nova, the formidable villain and psychic twin of X-Men’s Professor X. This character, emerging from the pages of New X-Men #114, represents a significant addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), marking Corrin’s debut as the live-action Cassandra Nova.

Cassandra Nova’s character is known for her destructive nature and vendetta against her brother, Charles Xavier, having attempted to destroy everything Xavier holds dear, including the X-Men. Her introduction to the MCU could have far-reaching implications, especially with the X-Men lore expanding and the potential lead-up to an Avengers: Secret Wars storyline.

The film, previously referred to as Deadpool 3, hints at Corrin’s role through subtle clues in its trailer, including a glimpse of a bald head, aligning with the longstanding rumours of Cassandra’s appearance.

Furthermore, official copyrights have linked Corrin to the role of Cassandra Nova.

This revelation sets the stage for an epic showdown in Deadpool & Wolverine. The film promises to bring together a host of characters from Marvel’s multiverse, with director Shawn Levy teasing numerous cameos fueled by the widespread affection for Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds, and Levy’s own filmography.

Deadpool & Wolverine will open in cinemas on 26 July.
