Director Shawn Levy has not quashed the swirling rumors about Taylor Swift’s potential cameo in Deadpool 3. Speculation has been rife that the global pop sensation might appear in the upcoming Marvel movie as Dazzler, a superhero known for her ability to transform sound into light beams and energy.
The rumor mill went into overdrive when Swift was spotted at a football game at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey alongside Deadpool 3 stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, as well as director Shawn Levy. When questioned about these rumors, Levy neither confirmed nor denied the possibility. In response to the enthusiastic demands from Swift’s fans to see her in the role of Dazzler, Levy cleverly dodged the question, saying, “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.”
Regardless of this speculation, Swift is already making waves in the film industry with her latest project, the Eras Tour concert film. Released just last week, the film quickly became a colossal success, becoming the highest-grossing concert movie in the history of the United States. Over its opening weekend, it raked in a staggering $123.5 million worldwide. Even before its release, the film set records by generating $26 million in three hours in pre-sale ticket sales for AMC, making it the chain’s highest single-day pre-sale earnings.
Swift’s concert film provides an intimate glimpse into her ongoing tour and has garnered widespread acclaim from critics. It currently boasts a perfect 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, reflecting the universal praise it has received.
As for Deadpool 3, the production temporarily halted due to the ongoing strike among Hollywood actors. Despite the pause, the team had managed to complete half of the filming process. Fans of the Deadpool series can still enjoy the first two movies, which are available for streaming on Disney+. Deadpool 3, starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, is highly anticipated and is scheduled for release on May 3, 2024. Until then, fans will have to patiently await further updates regarding the potential involvement of Taylor Swift in the film, keeping the excitement levels at an all-time high.
