Twitter was abuzz earlier this month when rumors started going around that Taylor Swift could be in the upcoming Deadpool 3 because she was seen hanging out with Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, and DP3 director Shawn Levy.
A lot of fans have been guessing that Swift is going to be playing the mutant Dazzler in the film, and Levy himself has been asked to comment about the rumors on Swift making a cameo. Talking to The Wrap, Levy says, “I’m going across the board. ‘No comment’ because that’s a double whammy. That’s Taylor-related. And it’s MCU-related. I’m no dummy. You’re going to have to wait and see.”
Though Swift is mostly known for her music, she does do the occasional appearance in films, like the Cats musical as well as her short appearance in Amsterdam which is arguably the best way to kill a person onscreen:

Seeing that their scoops have ended up being hit and miss lately, we should also take this rumor with a grain of salt. After all, plans could change. Deadpool 3 is currently looking at a huge delay thanks to the SAG-AFTRA strike, and who’s to say Swift or anyone else in the cast could get into some kind of public tiff that could have studio heads demand the re-editing of the film—just look at what happened to Ansel Elgort around the release of West Side Story.
For now rumors are rumors, but fans are hoping they get an update on DP3 soon.
