One Princess Diana actress had already been cast in Marvel with Elizabeth Debicki in Guardians of the Galaxy, but the actress who plays a younger Diana in The Crown has also found her way to the Marvel family.
As announced by Ryan Reynolds, Emma Corrin has been cast in an undisclosed role in Deadpool 3:

No details have been revealed about Corrin’s role in the film yet, but fans are already going into speculation mode. With the movie said to be dealing with alternate timelines, some think that Corrin could be playing a Deadpool variant in the form of Lady Deadpool, who runs the Deadpool Corps with several other variants of Deadpool.
One other fan spec is that she is playing the role of Gwen Poole a.k.a. Gwenpool, who is neither Gwen Stacy nor a Deadpool variant. In the comics, Gwen is a character from our ‘real world’ and finds herself transported to the Marvel Universe. Using her knowledge of all-things-Marvel, Gwen manages to lead her own superhero life, crossing over with several other characters like MODOK and even Deadpool himself.
I guess if Gwen did have a super power, it’s that she’s also able to break the fourth wall, but unlike Wade, she actually uses her power in a way to alter her reality. Her story can get ridiculously meta, but if there was a time to introduce her, I think the third DP movie would be perfect.
Then again, it’s all just speculation. With the movie set to come out later next year, it will probably be a while before we get a new update.
