It turns out that the Marvel team did not plan for Corrin to physically transform for her MCU debut. Emma Corrin told British GQ, "This is funny because I did ask if I could have a personal trainer and they said no." Corrin said that the Studion told her that she didn’t have to undergo any physical training.

Corrin further added, "I was so ready to undergo a huge transformation but they were like, That’s absolutely not required of you. Please stand down." Marvel comic book readers will recognize Cassandra Nova as the villainous twin sister of X-Men leader Charles Xavier, who is frequently portrayed by Patrick Stewart in the film versions.

It's unclear exactly how the figure fits into the Deadpool and Wolverine narrative. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Corrin revealed that when Ryan Reynolds and director Shawn Levy were brainstorming ideas for their Deadpool and Wolverine rival, they mentioned that Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds villain Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) was their first thought.
