Emma Corrin asked for a personal trainer for Deadpool 3 but was turned down

Emma Corrin asked for a personal trainer for Deadpool 3 but was turned down

Emma Corrin revealed in a video interview with British GQ that she sought out a personal trainer to transform into the villain Cassandra Nova in Marvel’s “Deadpool and Wolverine,” but the studio turned her down. It turns out that undergoing a physical transformation wasn’t what the Marvel team had in mind for Corrin’s MCU debut.

“It’s funny because I asked if I could get a personal trainer and they said no, they said I didn’t have to do any physical training, I was ready to go through a major transformation but they said, ‘That’s not required of you at all, please stop.’ I tried.”

Comic book readers know Cassandra as Charles Xavier’s evil twin sister. It has yet to be revealed how the character will factor into the Deadpool/Wolverine storyline. Speaking to Entertainment WeeklyKorine said Ryan Reynolds and director Shawn Levy told them that the villain Hans Land (Christoph Waltz) in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds was at the forefront of the duo’s minds when they conceived the villain in Deadpool and Wolverine.

“He’s so polite and kind and unassuming, which is really scary,” Corinne said. “And it’s even more sinister because he doesn’t have to do anything.”

“Ryan and Sean came up with this idea, which I was totally on board with: ‘We want this evil character to not be evil in the sense that you expect her to be. We want you to be so enamored by her, so fascinated by her, that when you think she might have completely gotten into your soul and you two are going to be best friends for life, you die,’” Corinne added.

Levy previously told Empire that he approached Korine to star in the film after seeing them perform in a stage production of Orlando last year. Levy arranged a meeting with Korine, but they had no idea what it was for, given Marvel’s extreme secrecy. Korine told Levy that they were completely confused about the MCU and would need a crash course in all things Marvel if they were to accept the role.

“Hands up, I’m not a Marvel fan,” Korine said. “I saw Spider-Man and Black Panther. I was like, ‘Look, you need to explain this to me.’ It’s a very complicated world. There’s so much stuff in it, it’s so confusing. All the language and Easter eggs, and this person is related to the person who did this, and this person is back and this person is dead… It’s amazing.”

“I really understand why this story means so much to so many people,” Corrin added. “It’s a phenomenon, and I feel really lucky to be a part of it. Especially ‘Deadpool,’ because I love the fact that it’s a self-aware, self-critical movie.”

“Deadpool and Wolverine” opens in theaters July 26. Watch Korine’s full interview with British GQ in the video below.
