Morena Baccarin is set to appear in Deadpool 3 as Vanessa, reuniting with Ryan Reynolds after Deadpool 2. The actress was interviewed for her new film with Pierce Brosnan titled Fast Charlie by ScreenRant. When asked about what audiences should expect from her character in Deadpool 3, the actress promised an evolved relationship between Wade and Vanessa.

Baccarin stated that Reynolds and Shawn Levy have done a great job at evolving the relationship between the two characters and bringing a new angle to it with this film. She loves the fact that the two characters are emotionally connected and not presented as a cookie-cutter relationship. She said,


“I think it’s really cool that they are such well-met characters and that their lives… You can see them in and out of each other’s lives constantly. The comic, it’s the same way. So I think that the franchise and Ryan and the director, they’ve done a really great job of always reinventing that relationship and making it interesting, but maintaining the core thing that keeps them always coming back to each other. So I think there’s a little bit more of that in this film.”

It will be interesting to witness how Vanessa adds to the bigger multiversal story that Deadpool 3 is striving for. Deadpool 3 is set to be released in theaters on July 26, 2024. Fans can watch the first two Deadpool films on Disney+.
