‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ is set to hit theaters in less than a month, and fans are buzzing with excitement. The movie promises over 20 rumored and confirmed cameos and will feature the return of beloved characters from the Deadpool franchise, including Morena Baccarin’s Vanessa. Vanessa, who initially died in ‘Deadpool 2,’ was resurrected at the end of the film when Wade stole a time-traveling device from Cable.

Vanessa and Deadpool were undoubtedly the best couple in Fox’s ‘X-Men’ franchise, but their relationship didn’t endure. Trailers and private screenings have revealed that Vanessa and Deadpool broke up sometime after ‘Deadpool 2.’ ‘Deadpool & Wolverine,’ set six years later, shows Vanessa with a new boyfriend.

This was probably good news for the actress, as she had complained over the years that filming intimate scenes with Ryan Reynolds was absolutely horrific—not because of the actor, but because of the costume.

Deadpool and Vanessa shared several intimate moments on-screen, including a sex scene montage in the first film. They celebrated various occasions with themed outfits, covering holidays like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and International Women’s Day. Baccarin discussed the montage in a 2017 interview with Conan O’Brien.

[The film] was really fun… minus the two days of sex scenes, it was wonderful, the whole experience. […]It took two days to shoot the sex scene, because I think it was us making sweet love for an entire calendar year. So it was all the holidays, you know. So we dressed differently for every one.

A year later, Baccarin told ‘People’ magazine that kissing Reynolds in the Deadpool costume was horrible. Because of the costume’s materials, it felt like kissing a giant rubber condom.

I keep saying that kissing him in that mask is like kissing a giant latex condom. It basically just smells like rubber the entire time.

It’s not all bad, though, as the actress also mentioned that Reynolds was professional throughout, making the experience bearable. Fortunately, there will be no sex scenes or kissing between the two in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’
