For more than a year, the internet has been buzzing with rumors and speculation about the highly-anticipated “Deadpool 3” film, and it’s not just because fans are eager to see the return of the Merc with a Mouth. The latest wave of excitement centers around a possible cameo appearance by none other than Taylor Swift, and it all started when eagle-eyed fans noticed some intriguing connections between the pop sensation and the movie’s cast and crew.
The rumor mill first kicked into overdrive when Ryan Reynolds, who portrays Deadpool, announced that Hugh Jackman would make an appearance in the film as Wolverine. What caught fans’ attention was that this announcement was filmed in the same house where Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well: The Short Film” was shot. The coincidence raised eyebrows and sparked a wave of speculation among fans.
More recently, this speculation reached new heights when Taylor Swift was seen alongside Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, as well as the director of “Deadpool 3,” Shawn Levy, at an NFL game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets. The trio’s public appearance fueled the fires of speculation, leaving fans wondering if Swift might make a surprise cameo in the film.
When directly asked about the possibility of Taylor Swift’s appearance in “Deadpool 3,” Shawn Levy played it coy, refusing to confirm or deny the rumors. In a recent interview with The Wrap, Levy acknowledged the enthusiastic desire of fans to see Swift in the movie and wittily responded, “They sure are loud. 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.”
Levy’s refusal to provide a definitive answer only added fuel to the fire and left fans even more eager to see if Swift would indeed grace the big screen alongside Deadpool.
While we wait to see if Taylor Swift will make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut, Shawn Levy, who previously collaborated with Swift on “All Too Well: The Short Film,” showered her with praise. He compared Swift to legendary director Steven Spielberg, labeling her as a “generational voice and creative force” in the entertainment industry.
“Taylor has not consulted me about upcoming directing projects, but I think she has the makings of a hell of a director,” Levy revealed. He went on to praise her depth of vision and unwavering commitment to her creative pursuits, likening it to Spielberg’s approach, which relies on trusting one’s instincts. This comparison highlights the profound impact Swift has had on the industry and the potential she holds in the world of directing.
In the meantime, Taylor Swift is already making waves in the world of cinema. Her concert film, “Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour,” has hit theaters and is taking the box office by storm. The numbers speak for themselves, with the film claiming the top spot at the box office and securing the second-best October opening of all time. Moreover, the movie has already become the highest-grossing concert film of all time, raking in nearly $97 million during its opening weekend. This impressive feat surpassed the previous record held by Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never,” which grossed $73 million over its entire theatrical run.
“We are grateful to Taylor Swift for allowing us to make [the] concert film accessible to millions of fans in movie theaters around the world,” stated AMC Theatres’ Executive Vice President of Worldwide Programming and Chief Content Officer Elizabeth Frank. The film has not only delighted fans but also garnered tremendous recommendations, leading to multiple viewings by enthusiastic audiences.
As fans eagerly await the release of “Deadpool 3,” the possibility of a Taylor Swift cameo keeps the excitement levels high. Whether or not Swift will make her superhero debut alongside the Merc with a Mouth, her incredible success with “Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour” continues to prove that she is a force to be reckoned with, both in the world of music and on the silver screen. In the end, we’ll just have to wait and see if the “Deadpool” franchise and Taylor Swift are ready to give fans the crossover they never knew they needed
