Speculation about Taylor Swift’s potential role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe gained momentum when she was seen supporting Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce in a game against the New York Jets in the company of Deadpool 3 stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, Deadline reports. The film’s director, Shawn Levy, was also in attendance.

Considering Taylor Swift’s status as arguably the most prominent figure in the entertainment industry and her close friendship with Ryan Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, the idea of her appearing in Deadpool 3 doesn’t seem far-fetched. Moreover, Deadpool movies are known for their celebrity cameos and tendency to playfully reference real-world stars.

Rumors of Taylor Swift joining the MCU once again swirled as she was seen with Deadpool 3 stars Ryan Reynold and Hugh Jackman, as well as the movie’s director, Shawn Levy, at Sunday’s Kanas City Chief’s football game.

Rumors of Taylor Swift potentially playing Dazzler have circulated for several years. However, she is just one of the X-Men characters rumored to make an appearance alongside Hugh Jackman’s Logan in Deadpool 3. Other names include Taron Egerton portraying a version of Wolverine and the potential returns of Famke Janssen as Jean Grey and Halle Berry as Storm.

It’s important to note that none of these casting speculations have been officially confirmed, but they are generating significant buzz on social media. Still, seeing the Deadpool 3 trio alongside Taylor Swift could be coincidental. The singer was also at last Sunday’s Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears and may have just wanted friends around to help deal with the media storm.

Dazzler/ Alison Blaire can convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams. Created by Tom DeFalco and John Romita Jr., she made her Marvel Comics debut in 1980’s Uncanny X-Men #130. Like Taylor Swift, Alison pursued a career in music. However, she used her powers to enhance her singing. Over the years, Dazzler has been a member of various superhero teams, including the X-Men and the Avengers.

Deadpool movies are known for their celebrity cameos and tendency to playfully reference real-world stars.

Dazzler has not had a prominent role in any Marvel cinematic movies, although the character, portrayed by Halston Sage, did make a brief appearance in 2019’s Dark Phoenix. Interestingly, Ryan Reynolds previously expressed enthusiasm about an appearance from Taylor Swift in Deadpool 3, as some of the movie is being shot in the same location as the singer’s All Too Well short film.

“Are you kidding me? I would do anything for that woman. She’s a genius,” Ryan Reynolds told Entertainment Tonight in 2022, while not confirming a definite appearance from Taylor Swift in Deadpool 3. While Swift is primarily recognized for her achievements in the music industry, she does have some acting background.

Taylor Swift has previously been featured in movies such as Valentine’s Day, The Giver, and Cats, as well as television shows like CSI and New Girl. More recently, Swift was part of the ensemble cast of David O. Russell’s comedy thriller Amsterdam, where she acted alongside other well-known actors from the superhero movie world, including Margot Robbie, Christian Bale, and Zoe Saldana.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is preparing to release The Eras Tour worldwide on October 13. Filming for the project, directed by Sam Wrench, took place during three shows at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. It showcases the show, which spans over three hours, with a setlist of 44 songs divided into 10 distinct acts that conceptually portray Swift’s ten studio albums.
