The ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike has us asking ourselves two very important questions: what will the release date be for Deadpool 3, and will Taylor Swift be featured in the film? Director Shawn Levy responded to rumors after he was spotted at a Kansas City Chiefs game with Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and Taylor Swift herself, according to Yahoo! Sports. Though many would consider this star-studded get-together to be the smoking gun that confirms the “Anti-Hero” singer has something to do with the upcoming film, Levy didn’t confirm or deny the rumors, asserting that it’s not for him to say.
The fact that Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy will neither confirm nor deny Taylor Swift’s appearance in the upcoming film has many convinced she’s in the movie.
One important fact to consider is that Taylor Swift is good friends with Ryan Reynold’s wife, Blake Lively. So even if it looks like the Deadpool 3 cast got together to watch the game, their joint attendance may have just been a social call rather than a business outing. Speaking to the rumors, Shawn Levy said that he refuses to comment because it’s something that the MCU or Taylor Swift herself should announce, and not him.
The prevailing rumor that’s circulating is that Taylor Swift will take on the role of Alison Blaire/Dazzler in Deadpool 3. Dazzler is a mutant who boasts the ability to transform sound vibrations into powerful light and energy beams, and often struggles to find a balance between her life as a singer and a superhero.
But since the upcoming Deadpool movie is only half completed, it remains to be seen if the rumors are true, or if avid fans of the pop star are just letting their imaginations run wild.

The fact that Deadpool 3 has halted production due to the ongoing strike raises some questions, however. Most importantly, if the movie is half finished, has Taylor Swift already filmed scenes? Or if she’s truly on board and hasn’t worked on the set yet, has she signed an NDA that prevents her from talking about whatever role she may have in the movie?
One thing that’s certain is that Taylor Swift would make a worthy addition to the Deadpool 3 lineup. Not only does Swift know how to sing, but Levy has also compared her talents to Steven Spielberg when it comes to staying true to her creative visions and convictions. Levy mentioned that Swift has the makings of “one hell of a director” and points to her many past projects that highlight her artistic instinct.
The prevailing rumor that’s circulating is that Taylor Swift will take on the role of Alison Blaire/Dazzler in Deadpool 3.
There are three possible scenarios that we can think of at this point in time. The most disappointing scenario would be that Taylor Swift has nothing to do with Deadpool 3, but given her friendship with Blake Lively, she simply wanted to invite her friends to the Chiefs Game, and they happened to be in town.
The second scenario is that she wanted to have a business meeting with Levy and co, but has not signed a contract yet, which would explain why nobody wants to confirm or deny the rumors. The third scenario is that a contract has been signed, and they’re working out the details, but have a clause in the contract that prohibits them from talking about further developments until we get closer to the release date, which remains uncertain at this point in time.
So to answer your question on whether Taylor Swift will appear in Deadpool 3 or not, there’s not enough information to confirm the rumors at the time of this writing. But given what we know, it’s not outside the realm of possibility.
