Sorry, Swifties: Taylor Swift is not featured in Deadpool and Wolverine (exclusive)

The pop superstar behind albums like The Tortured Poets Department and folklore is not in the film.

The news comes as IMAX debuted a new poster for the Marvel extravaganza on Monday that featured the two title heroes holding hands, wearing friendship bracelets like the ones that have become synonymous with Swift’s massive worldwide Eras Tour.

Though Swift is not in her MCU era, for months fans have speculated that she could be in the film, with some musing she might portray the comic book character Dazzler.

Rumors went into overdrive last October when Deadpool and Wolverine actors Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman attended a Kansas City Chiefs NFL game. They were with the film’s director, Shawn Levy, and Taylor Swift, who was there to support her boyfriend, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, have of course been friends with Swift for many years. Levy and the singer go way back, as well — he even starred in her self-directed “All Too Well” music video. So their presence at the game should not have come as a surprise, but fans speculated anyways.


In the months since, Levy and Reynolds have played coy, opting to neither confirm nor deny their friend’s involvement — or lack thereof — in interviews.

Levy told 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 rumors.”

In an interview in May with Fandango, Reynolds said that “straight up dishonesty isn’t in the cards” when addressing the rumors. “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 teased. “Anything can happen and that’s sort of what I love about this universe. Surprises are the essence of Deadpool.”

As for who is in the film though, Reynolds and Jackman share the screen together as the titular Deadpool and Wolverine for the first time since 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Returning characters from the past two Deadpool installments are Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna), Colossus (Stefan Kapičić), Peter/Sugar Bear (Rob Delaney), Dopinder (Karan Soni), and Shatterstar (Lewis Tan). But even without Swift, theaters have plenty of surprises in store.

Deadpool and Wolverine will open on July 26.
