Remember when that image of Taylor Swift alongside the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse started making the rounds? Following that many began to speculate that the pop star could have a role in the upcoming film and perhaps would be portraying Allison Blaire aka the mutant pop star ‘Dazzler’.
However, not long after this speculation began, producer Simon Kinberg denied said rumor but didn’t deny that the mutant could be appearing in the film. Well, a new posted on Twitter earlier today by actress Sophie Turner (who portrays Jean Grey in the film) has once again shined some light on the rumor.

Sure, just because an image features a Dazzler album cover, it doesn’t exactly confirm that we will be seeing the character debut in the film. However, with Turner also inclduing a reference to Swift’s album 1989, things do seem a bit suspect when it comes to this one. Additionally worth noting is that the actress also tagged Swift in her Instagram post of the same image.
Do you think there’s a chance that we’ll see Swift as the mutant who converts sound into light when the film hits theaters next month? Sound off and let us know what you think about the matter in the comments section below.
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
Only the strong will survive when X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27, 2016.
