Breaking News:Will Taylor Swift Play Dazzler in Deadpool and Wolverine? Here’s Why Marvel Fans Are Convinced



Will Taylor Swift Play Dazzler in Deadpool and Wolverine? Here’s Why Marvel Fans Are Convinced
“Anything can happen and that’s sort of what I love about this universe,” Ryan Reynolds has said

Fans have speculated for months that the Grammy winning singer, 34, will be making a surprise cameo in the upcoming third Deadpool film, Deadpool & Wolverine.

Set to release this summer, the movie is bringing the foul-mouthed assassin and his claw-wielding frenemy into the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time thanks to Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, who had previously owned rights to the characters. And judging from the first trailers, the film’s timeline-jumping plot will include a handful of superhero easter eggs and cameos of characters from past Fox X-Men films — including Azazel (played by Jason Flemyng; last seen in X-Men: First Class), Lady Deathstrike (Kelly Hu; X2: X-Men United), Sabretooth (Tyler Mane; X-Men), Toad (Ray Park; X-Men), and Pyro (Aaron Stanford; X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand).

But there’s one mutant from Fox’s past that might be played by another star: Dazzler.

Known in the comics by her real name Alison Blaire, Dazzler is a mutant who can convert sound vibrations into various forms of light, like lasers, strobes, blasts holograms and more. She balances her super powers with her career as a singer, dancer and actor.

Audiences first briefly saw Dazzler in 2019’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix, in a scene starring Halston Sage. But they almost met her on screen in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, where — in a deleted scene not included in the theatrical cut — a Dazzler record appeared to be held up while Sophie Turner’s character Jean Gray shopped in the mall with Tye Sheridan’s Scott Summers.

Turner, a pal of Swift’s, posted an image from the moment to her Instagram in April 2016. “#FlashbackFriday to that time Cyclops and I went shopping at the mall and found our favorite singer’s album,” she captioned it, adding “(pre 1989, of course).”

Her reference to Swift’s chart-topping pop album wasn’t just a shout-out to a friend; it was also poking at a longstanding rumor at the time that Swift would be playing Dazzler.

Months earlier, in July 2015, Swift had appeared in a photo with Turner and her X-Men: Apocalypse costar James McAvoy as the trio posed backstage with the movie’s producer Simon Kinberg at Swift’s Montreal concert. That picture, and the fact that X-Men: Apocalypse was in production, sparked speculation that Swift would be making an appearance as Dazzler in the movie.

Kinberg would go on to debunked those theories, telling MTV they were all his “fault” because, as a huge Swift fan himself, he would play 1989 on set all the time.

“It was what I was listening to every morning to get sort of energized and I would listen to it on the set every day for Apocalypse,” he told the outlet, explaining he went to the concert with Turner and McAvoy, as well as film stars Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne. “So we went to the show, me and those people, and then she invited us to come back and meet her afterwards. It was just a photo backstage at the concert, and that was the only time we ever saw her.”
