In an interview with Empire Magazine, when Emma was asked what do they think about playing a villain role in Deadpool 3 and joining the multi-verse, which is new to them, Emma replied-
“I’ve watched Spider-Man and Black Panther. I was like, ‘Look, you’re gonna have to debrief me into this’. It’s such an intricate world. There’s so much to it. It’s an absolute mind-f**k. All the language and the Easter eggs, and this person is related to that person who did this, and this person came back and this person’s dead… it’s amazing. I really understand why it means as much as it does to so many people. It’s a phenomenon, and I feel really lucky to be part of it, especially Deadpool because I love the fact that it’s self-aware, and critical of its own inner workings,” they said.
Further speaking about their antagonist role in Deadpool 3, they added- “I feel really excited to play a villain. I haven’t done that, and it’s an itch I want to scratch.”
