No cameo for Taylor Swift in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’, new report claims

Taylor Swift is not set to star in the upcoming superhero movie, Deadpool & Wolverine, despite speculation from fans.

According to an exclusive report by Entertainment Weekly, the singer of ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ will not be making an appearance in the next instalment of the Marvel franchise.

Despite IMAX posting an Instagram picture yesterday showing its two heroes holding hands and wearing friendship bracelets, a symbol of Swift fandom and more specifically ‘The Eras Tour’, it has been revealed that the singer won’t be involved in the film.

The rumours began after fans noticed the film’s stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman in attendance with Swift at a Kansas City Chiefs game last October, along with the film’s director Shawn Levy.

Some fans of MCU speculated that she might portray the comic book character Dazzler in the upcoming movie.

It’s well known that Swift is friends with both Reynolds and Levy, with the former attending her recent show along with his wife Blake Lively, and Swift including their children’s names in her song ‘betty’, and with Levy starring in Swift’s short film All Too Well.

However, it seems Swift’s friendships with Levy and Reynolds don’t necessarily suggest her involvement in the film, which will be next month.

While neither Levy nor Reynolds addressed the rumour for some time, Levy told EW in April: “I regret that I was not quicker to shut it down the first time, so I’m going to default to my very true situation, which is as much as we love each other, the fear of death is so intense in me regarding Ryan and how he desperately wants to avoid talking about all of these proliferating rumours.”

Back in May, Jackman, Levy and Reynolds spoke with Fandango about the rumour. When the interviewer presumed that the trio would lie about Swift’s possible involvement, Levy responded: “I think we’re gonna go with avoidance, rather than dishonesty.”

Reynolds added: “Straight up dishonesty isn’t in the cards right now,” before explaining: “Movies like this, there’s so much speculation about so many people that might end up in the film.”

He continued: “I saw one that was convinced Elvis was in the movie. Anything can happen and that’s sort of what I love about this universe. Surprises are the essence of Deadpool.”

Deadpool & Wolverine is scheduled to premiere on July 26.

As for Swift, she kicked off the UK leg of her Eras Tour last week with three shows at the Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.

The singer is headed to Liverpool next, where she’ll play three shows at Anfield Stadium, supported by Paramore.

After that, she’ll play a slot at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff (June 18) before heading to London for three sold out shows at Wembley.
