Is Taylor Swift making a surprise cameo in Marvel’s Deadpool & Wolverine?

Is Marvel 'Ready For It'?

Global superstar Taylor Swift seems to be able to do it all, but is she really set to make a cameo in Marvel’s most anticipated film of the year, Deadpool & Wolverine?

For months, Marvel fans and Swifties have been theorising that the Love Story songstress has nabbed a role in the Deadpool franchise‘s third instalment, which is set to hit cinemas on July 26.

While it would be epic to see Swift trade her bedazzled Eras Tour leotards for a supersuit, fans will have to wait a while longer for that dream to come to fruition.

Yep, Entertainment Weekly exclusively reported on June 10 that the musician won’t appear in Deadpool & Wolverine.

So, why were people so hellbent that she would?

Rumours that Swift was Deadpool & Wolverine‘s secret weapon went into overdrive in October 2023 when she was spotted with the film’s stars, Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, as they cheered on her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, at a Kansas City Chief’s NFL game.

Also in attendance was the movie’s director, Shawn Levy, who — for keen-eyed Swifties — appeared in the singer’s self-directed All Too Well: The Short Film.

Not to mention, Swift and Reynolds’ wife, Blake Lively, are extremely close friends, so if there was ever an in for her foray into Marvel films, there it is!

Entertainment Weekly debunked the Swift x Marvel rumours just as IMAX debuted a new poster for the film that featured Reynold’s Deadpool and Jackman’s Wolverine sporting friendship bracelets.

But what does the accessory have to do with Swift’s apparent link to Deadpool & Wolverine, you ask?

Well, friendship bracelets became synonymous with the star’s worldwide Eras Tour after the release of her Midnights album track, You’re On Your Own Kid, which features the lyrics: “So make the friendship bracelets/Take the moment and taste it.”

Ever since, making friendship bracelets en masse has bonded Swifties, who trade them when attending the tour.

Adding fuel to the fire, Levy and Reynolds have failed to confirm nor deny their buddy’s involvement in Deadpool & Wolverine.

Chatting to Fandango in May, Reynolds said that “straight-up dishonesty isn’t in the cards” when addressing the rumours.

“Movies like this, there’s so much speculation about so many people that might end up in the film. I saw one that was convinced Elvis was in the movie,” he said.

“Anything can happen and that’s sort of what I love about this universe. Surprises are the essence of Deadpool.”

Meanwhile, Levy told Entertainment Weekly 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.”

Deadpool & Wolverine hits cinemas on July 26, 2024.
