‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Taylor Swift Cameo Rumors Debunked

With Swift out of the pool, there’s still hope for the subset of fans who speculated that the rumor-sparking legs in the latest trailer for the film belong to Blake Lively

Sorry to the very specific group of people who fall into the center of the Swifties and Marvel fans Venn diagram, but Taylor Swift is not in Deadpool & Wolverine.

Over the weekend, a teaser trailer and poster for the upcoming Marvel release, out June 26, sparked rumors that the pop musician would be joining Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman in the film as Lady Deadpool. The foundation of these rumors was a shot of someone’s legs in costume from the thigh down in the trailer and an image of Deadpool and Wolverine holding hands while wearing friendship bracelets on a poster.

It’s not much to go off of, but Swifties have been trained in the art of making something out of nothing after years of sniffing out easter eggs and subtle messages hidden in Swift’s album releases. There were also already nine-year-old rumors that the singer would appear as Dazzler, an X-Men-associated comic book character with a special connection to queer Marvel fans. But as Entertainment Weekly reports, there is no Taylor’s Version of either character.


“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,” Reynolds told Fandango in May. “Anything can happen, and that’s sort of what I love about this universe. Surprises are the essence of Deadpool.”

With Swift out of the pool, there’s still hope for the subset of fans who speculated that the clothed legs in the trailer belong to Blake Lively, a close friend of Swift’s and Reynolds’ wife. In February, Reynolds shared a teaser for the film with the caption: “Has everyone seen the #Deadpool trailer? Also, has anyone seen my wife?”
