Considering that Taylor Swift has been spotted hanging out with the cast of Deadpool & Wolverine — notably at that Chiefs game back in October with Ryan Reynolds, wife Blake Lively, Deadpool franchise director Shawn Levy, and Hugh Jackman — Swift’s presence in the new Marvel movie is almost a given.

Ryan Reynolds (Free Guy), known for his role as the fan-favorite character Deadpool/Wade Wilson in the Fox X-Men Universe, was the first to announce the exciting news about Deadpool & Wolverine, AKA Deadpool 3. He did so alongside longtime frenemy Hugh Jackman, renowned for his portrayal of Wolverine/Logan/James Howlett in the X-Men Universe.

This announcement, reinforced by Super Bowl LVIII’s iconic Deadpool & Wolverine trailer, confirmed that both iconic superheroes would finally be making their highly anticipated debut in the central Marvel Studios’ MCU. Now, a new report is indicating that beloved singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is headed to the Marvel universe.

Recent reports suggest that several major X-Men stars, including Channing Tatum, are set to return in the new MCU film. This move appears to be an effort to reacquaint Marvel audiences with the Fox Universe X-Men. Additionally, Marvel fans are eagerly anticipating the potential return of Jennifer Garner as Elektra (Daredevil) in Deadpool 3.

This speculation gained traction when Ben Affleck was reportedly spotted on the set of the third Deadpool film earlier this year, hinting that his version of Daredevil/Matt Murdock from Marvel’s 2003 Daredevil might also be making a comeback.

An ongoing rumor has been circulating that Eras Tour star Taylor Swift might make a cameo in the new Deadpool movie, potentially portraying the hero Dazzler or, according to other reports, Marvel Comics’ Lady Deadpool.

According to Hollywood and Marvel insider source Daniel Richtman, though, Taylor Swift might be getting a solo show within the MCU — and it’s for a role barely anyone expected to go to the star. Screen Time shares Richtman’s reveal on X/Twitter:

Who is Blonde Phantom?

Blonde Phantom is a lesser-known Marvel character with a distinctly old-school, “noir film”-esque vibe. Originally introduced in the 1940s, Louise Grant, AKA Blonde Phantom, was a secretary-turned-crimefighter. In the more modern Marvel comics, the character has transitioned to roles in “The Sensational She-Hulk” series, where she became a close ally to She-Hulk.

There are speculations that Scarlett Johansson’s rumored secret MCU project might involve Blonde Phantom, as she had previously expressed interest in the character​.

With Swift getting chummy with Marvel stars as of late, it definitely seems like something is brewing in the bowels of Disney’s Marvel Studios.

Currently, Laura Kinney/X23 is set to return to the big screen as an adult, portrayed by Natalia Tena. Initially, rumors suggested that Dafne Keen, who played the younger X23 in Logan, would join the cast.

As the MCU moves forward with Avengers 5 (formerly Avengers: The Kang Dynasty) and Avengers 6, known as Avengers: Secret Wars, under Kevin Feige’s new vision emphasizing a “grounded” and “street-level” narrative, Secret Wars is anticipated to conclude the current Multiverse Saga.
