A gathering of stars at a recent NFL game is fueling a fresh wave of rumors surrounding the cast of Deadpool 3. Pop sensation Taylor Swift was seen with Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy and stars Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, igniting speculation about Swift’s potential role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s no secret that Taylor Swift and Reynolds have crossed paths in the social scene before, thanks to Swift’s friendship with Reynolds’ wife, Blake Lively. However, their public appearance at a recent NFL game alongside Shawn Levy has brought old Marvel rumors back to the surface.
The whispers center around the X-Men character Dazzler, a mutant with the ability to convert sound into light, a role seemingly well-suited for a global pop icon like Swift. Speculation about Swift donning Dazzler’s iconic attire isn’t new, as it traces back to the days of Fox’s X-Men era.
What we know about Deadpool 3 and Taylor Swift’s potential Marvel future
The rumored plot of Deadpool 3 hints at an exciting team-up between Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, with the two reprising their roles as the Merc with the Mouth and Wolverine, respectively. The duo is said to be evading the Time Variance Authority, also known as the TVA, which was initially introduced in Marvel’s Disney Plus series Loki.
There’s currently no official word on Taylor Swift’s involvement in Deadpool 3, but the swirling rumors don’t seem far-fetched given the film’s rumored multiverse storyline. The incorporation of different universes and timelines can serve as a plausible backdrop for new characters to emerge in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making the inclusion of a star like Swift as Dazzler a possibility.
Production for Deadpool 3 is currently on pause due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike. Although the WGA strike concluded recently, bringing a sigh of relief to many in Hollywood, the standstill persists for numerous projects, including several Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
Dazzler made her first comic book appearance in The Uncanny X-Men #130, released in February 1980. Tom DeFalco and John Romita Jr. are the two creative forces behind the character, who has previously been seen in live-action in 2019’s Dark Phoenix, with Halston Sage playing her.
Deadpool 3 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2024. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Taylor Swift’s potential Marvel Cinematic Universe role and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
