- Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming Deadpool 3 may feature several X-Men characters from the MCU, and fans are now imagining Taylor Swift joining the team.
- Swift’s previous attempts at acting have been unsuccessful, but a role in Deadpool 3 could revive her acting career.
- While there is no confirmation that Swift will appear in the film, fans believe she would be a perfect fit for the role of Dazzler, a mutant pop star with the ability to transform sound into light.
Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 boasts the inclusion of many X-Men premiering in the MCU. Now, a fan artist has imagined what it would be like if Taylor Swift joined the team.
The singer-songwriter has made her name in music, but Swift is no stranger to acting. In addition to appearing in Tom Hooper’s cursed Cats film, she has also had roles in Amsterdam and The Giver. Now that Hugh Jackman is officially reprising his role as Wolverine in a comic-accurate suit, it is anyone’s guess what X-Men could appear, and fans’ imaginations are running wild.

In an Instagram post shared by @bosslogic, one artist imagined Swift as X-Men character Dazzler. Featured briefly in X-Men: The Animated Series, the mutant is a pop star who can transform sound into light. A perfect ability for any performer, Swift would be a welcome addition to the cast in this role.
Fan images like these have kicked the rumor mill into high gear. It is no secret that Swift is friendly with Reynolds, being pictured with the Deadpool actor and his wife, Blake Lively, at sporting events and the like. If Dazzler is included in Deadpool 3, securing the singer for the role would seemingly be easy.
Including her in the imminent franchise film would be a meta-inclusion that fits right into the tone of Deadpool, but it could also cement Swift as a Hollywood actor. Her previous attempts at segueing into acting have not had the best outcome. Through no fault of her own, it seems the Shake It Off singer only had a bad habit of picking projects doomed to fail. The uncanny valley aspect of the musical Cats even turned off Andrew Lloyd Webber. Despite David O. Russell’s impressive filmography, Amsterdam flopped spectacularly at the box office, and The Giver was no better. Getting cast in a big Marvel Studios movie would save her acting career if that is something that she chooses to pursue.
But of course, this is just a rumor. There has been no confirmation that Dazzler will appear in Deadpool 3. Most confirmed cameos are from Marvel veterans who have yet to jump to the MCU. Many original X-Men cast members are rumored to appear in Deadpool 3, and there may not be room for cameos of characters who have yet to have a significant role in live-action. If it ever happens, however, Swift would be the obvious choice to play the mutant.
Deadpool 3 will premiere in theaters on May 3, 2024.
