No, Taylor Swift Is Not Dazzler in X-Men: Apocalypse
The internet was abuzz this weekend with rumors that none other than Taylor Swift would be making a cameo in X-Men: Apocalypse, as disco-singer-turned-mutant-superhero Dazzler. Now, Swift has responded to these reports, and has unequivocally denied that she will be appearing in the superhero movie.

The rumors began when Sophie Turner revealed a still from X-Men: Apocalypse, which showed a fun little Dazzler Easter egg for Marvel Comics fans:


In the tweet, Turner says that Dazzler is her character's favorite singer's album "pre-1989," which refers to Taylor Swift's most recent album. While it seems that the wording was just a little unclear, and she meant that 1989 is now the actress's favorite album, many fans took it to mean that Dazzler was, in fact, Taylor Swift. But now, Swift's representative has told Gossip Cop that the reports were definitely "not true."

That being said, the casting would have made a lot of sense in many ways, especially if it were a primarily musical cameo. Swift looks the part, and would undoubtedly help the box office considerably with even a brief appearance. So we shouldn't rule out the possibility for future movies, but there's no reason to think that it will happen as of now.

X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27.
