Did Taylor Swift CONFIRM her role in Marvel movie? Details here

Taylor Swift’s ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ album is out now

Taylor Swift’s surprise double album, The Tortured Poets Department, became accessible online in the early hours of April 19, and fans began listening to it. When they reached the finish, they noticed that the final song, Clara Bow, ended with the word Dazzling.

Swift is suspected of dropping an Easter egg concerning Deadpool and Wolverine. Earlier speculations stated that the pop sensation will appear in Marvel Studios’ R-rated superhero picture, presumably as X-Men member and superheroine Alison Blaire, nicknamed Dazzler.


Many hypotheses have stated that, in addition to Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s representations of the film’s eponymous characters, more unexpected cameos from the Marvel universe will be included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Taylor Swift’s involvement in Deadpool & Wolverine has not yet been confirmed. Notably, Reynolds and filmmaker Shawn Levy are friends with Swift and have appeared in her music videos, implying potential cooperation.

Even though Swift later disclosed that The Tortured Poets Department is a double album, with fifteen additional songs released as The Tortured Poets: The Anthology, Clara Bow did not serve as the album’s closer. The use of the phrase “dazzling” has caused some Marvel fans to hold back.

Meanwhile, ComicBook.com speculates that Taylor Swift’s choice of “dazzling” may be more than a coincidence. The song delves into the highs and lows of being the entertainment industry’s “It Girl,” a concept first associated with Clara Bow, a silent movie star.


The song then shifts to Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks, then to Swift, and lastly to the current generation of pop singers. Each lady is portrayed as her predecessor, symbolising the industry’s never-ending search for the next big thing.

The recurrent use of the word “dazzling” shows that these women are under pressure to maintain a captivating public image.

Overall, the song criticises the industry’s inclination to oversimplify and glamorise these women’s occupations, emphasising the problems and complexities they face.

Rumours linking Taylor Swift to the role of Dazzler began almost a decade ago, during the filming of X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. These rumours surfaced when Swift was spotted with members of the film’s cast.

Swift was in the midst of her first 1989 phase, which was distinguished by a white and blue colour palette that mimicked Dazzler’s comic-accurate attire.

The Apocalypse allegations were later debunked, and Dazzler made a surprise appearance in 2020’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix (performed by a different actress). Swift’s well-established connections to the Deadpool & Wolverine cast and crew fueled speculation that she could play Dazzler, which was further amplified when the film began production in 2023. Not to be missed is the fact that Swift was using another white-and-blue colour scheme at the time, the Midnights.

Deadpool & Wolverine is set to make their theatrical debut on July 26.
