Ryan Reynolds And Scarlett Johansson: A Married Couple
Ryan Reynolds is now leading a happily married life with Blake Lively, his co-star from Green Lantern and Scarlett Johansson is engaged to Colin Jost, the Saturday Night Live star.
But, many of us have forgotten, or so it seems, that these two actors used to be married not too long ago.
As a matter of fact, Deadpool and Black Widow were husband and wife for around two years before they called it quits. All this happened when Johansson was along the lines of entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Deadpool And Black Widow Said Their Vows In 2008:
The two actors started dating sometime in April 2007, all the while keeping their relationship as private as they could.
This was the time when social media hadn’t entered the scenario, which made it easy to keep their relationship under the wraps. Regardless, rumor mills still flowed stating the two were together.
While neither of them confirmed the same, they instead confirmed their engagement three days after the premiere of Iron Man.
Reynolds and Johansson tied the knot just four months later, on September 28, 2008. Their ceremony was a private affair at a wilderness retreat near Vancouver and was a huge secret.
No photos of the ceremony were leaked to the press or the magazines, and the couple never agreed for an interview.
Funny that Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson were once married. Now their going to try and put him in the end credits 😄

In an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, the Deadpool actor revealed that their married life did not include any work talk in the house.
He also said that Samuel L. Jackson had sent him 10,000 bees as a gift for their wedding.
In an interview with Glamour, which released sometime before the couple’s first anniversary, Johansson commented about her husband’s appearance on the show and stated that it had made her uncomfortable.
Life After Marriage:
Soon after the interview, Johansson joined the MCU as Black Widow in Iron Man 2.
She also later admitted that both of their crazy work schedules were posing a challenge for the two as they were not being able to spend time together as a family or invest in it.
Come 2010 and the couple was living separately, even putting their $4.5 million Los Angeles home for sale on the market.
It Still Wasn’t Over:
On the cover of InStyle in Mat 2010, Johansson revealed in a statement that she felt comfort in being married and that she enjoyed cooking for her husband.
Moreover, Reynolds cheered for her from the audience when she won the Tony Award the next month for her role in A View from the Bridge.
Just a few months after that, the couple announced their separation on December 14, 2010. They also stated that the decision was mutual, filled with love and kindness and that they would appreciate some privacy.
Ever since their divorce, both the actors have talked a lot about their marriage, more so than they did when they were together. They also stated how they wanted to keep their lives and the details of their story private.

Ryan Reynolds And Scarlett Johansson To Possibly Reunite?
It will be ten years after their separation, and Reynolds is all set to be a part of Black Widow, Johansson’s solo Marvel film, which is slated to release on May 1, 2020.
Sources suggest that Marvel will introduce their newly-acquired character of Deadpool into the MCU in a post-credits scene in Black Widow.
While all this is still just speculation, even if Deadpool does make his first appearance into the MCU in Black Widow, it still does not mean that he will be working together with Johansson.
