Ryan Reynolds responds to speculation that Taylor Swift will make a brief cameo in Deadpool 3. Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth is finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Deadpool 3 thanks to Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will make a comeback in the R-rated movie, which is being directed by Shawn Levy of Free Guy and The Adam Project. Jackman appeared to have said goodbye to the character in 2017’s Logan. Although there are currently no other confirmed cast members for Deadpool 3, there has already been a lot of online rumor about who might be showing up.

Reynolds addressed the rumors that Swift would appear in Deadpool 3 during a recent red carpet interview with Entertainment Tonight to promote his new film Spirited. The popular fan theory was refuted by the Wade Wilson actor, but given that he and his family are Swift fans and are “obsessed” with her most recent album Midnights, Reynolds stated that he would “of course” be open to having Swift make an appearance in Deadpool 3. Here is what he said:

“If we shoot the next Deadpool film in our house, then that would be that location… Are you kidding me? I would do anything for that woman. She’s a genius… Oh my God, yes. All of us, whole house, I’m not kidding. I love it so much. I do, Blake does, my daughters. We love it. Obsessed.”

Reynolds posted a Deadpool 3 clip in September, in which he revealed Jackman’s return and the two stars answered questions regarding the threequel. The video was shot in the same house as All Too Well: The Short Film, directed by Swift and starring Stranger Things’ Sadie Sink and The Maze Runner’s Dylan O’Brien. Those who spotted the connection came to the conclusion taylor Swift would feature in Deadpool 3, which is currently in the works.

Whether or if the common location was intended as an Easter egg, the fan hypothesis never held much water, and Reynolds has now debunked it. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of his remarks is that Reynolds is up to Swift making an appearance in Deadpool 3, implying that the fan theory may come true after all. Swift has just released her tenth studio album, Midnights, as well as a cameo in David O. Russell’s new movie, Amsterdam, one among a few movie roles the singer-songwriter has taken on over the years.

A appearance from Swift would be gratuitous in any other Marvel franchise, but not for Deadpool. Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Alan Tudyk, and practically all of the X-Men made appearances in the sequel. Given her strong relationship with Reynolds and his family, Swift appearing in Deadpool 3 might follow the series’ practice of adding major celebrity cameos as amusing gags. With Deadpool 3 still in production, Reynolds has plenty of time to make the appearance happen, possibly fulfilling fans’ demands to see Swift as mutant pop sensation Dazzler.
