‘Deadpool’ Almost Had a Lot More Sex in It

Fox’s Deadpool couldn’t quite be called a “sexy” movie per se, but the Merc with a Mouth’s standalone debut almost had a lot more sex in its holiday-themed sex montage that fans no doubt remember from the movie. It’s the one that took place before Deadpool developed an invincible dick.

The update comes from co-star Morena Baccarin, who plays mercenary Wade Wilson’s love interest, Vanessa, in the film. Shortly after their meeting relatively early on in Deadpool, the two have a year’s worth of sex across the calendar in a matter of minutes, with a number of “themed” sessions tied to holidays — namely Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, Lent, Chinese New Year, and just a little bit of pegging on International Women’s Day.

But on Conan, Baccarin mentioned the crew spent almost two whole days just filming sex scenes, and at least some of them weren’t included in the final cut. “There’s a lot left on the cutting room floor,” she says, “because there are a lot of holidays.” She thinks the final version of the movie had “enough sex” and “nobody needs to see more than what was in the movie.”

Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool himself, has somewhat agreed in the past, having once said of the montage, “It’s not as titillating as it is just sort of funny and horrifying at times.”
