In a surprising twist for fans of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and pop sensation Taylor Swift, recent rumours suggest that the “Shake It Off” singer might be making a cameo in the highly anticipated Deadpool 3.
However, contrary to popular speculation, it seems she won’t be playing the role of Dazzler, a character many believed she was perfect for.

From Singer to Actress
Taylor Swift, primarily known for her chart-topping hits and evocative lyrics, has been slowly carving a niche for herself in Hollywood. With roles in films like The Giver and Cats, Swift has demonstrated her versatility as an actress, proving that she’s more than just a musical sensation.

Deadpool 3 promises to be an exciting addition to the MCU, with Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the fourth wall-breaking antihero. The film has faced some production delays due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, but director Shawn Levy remains optimistic about meeting the planned release date of May 3, 2024.
Star-studded Cast and Cameos
Apart from Reynolds, Deadpool 3 will also feature Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.

The Dazzler Speculation
For years, fans have been clamouring for Swift to play Dazzler, a musical mutant in the Marvel universe. Given her musical background and star power, many believed she was the perfect choice. However, with Levy’s recent comments, it seems we might see her in a different role.
Here’s what Levy had to say on the matter during a recent interview with The Wrap:
They sure are loud. I’m going across the board. ‘No comment’ because that’s a double whammy. That’s Taylor-related. And it’s MCU-related. I’m no dummy. You’re going to have to wait and see.

Swift’s close friendship with Reynolds’ wife, Blake Lively, and her recent public appearances with other Marvel stars, has only fuelled the rumours of her involvement in “Deadpool 3”. The speculation reached its peak when Swift was seen with Reynolds, Lively, Jackman, and other celebrities at a football game.
