So cool! Taylor Swift showed off her fighting skills in the music video for ‘Bad Blood,’ and now she may be showing off those moves on the big screen. On July 8, the ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ producer hinted that she may be playing Dazzler in the new film. See the evidence here!
Taylor Swift, 25, has practically taken over the world with her music, but her next plan of attack seems to be winning an Oscar. The “Bad Blood” singer, who has starred in a number of movies already (Valentine’s Day, The Giver, etc.), may be joining the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse.
The evidence? Taylor was seen in a photo, which was tweeted by X-Men: Apocalypse producer, Simon Kinberg. In the picture, the singer is posing alongside Simon, as well as the stars of the movie, Sophie Turner and James McAvoy. Simon captioned it with “Haters gonna hate,” which is one of T-Swizzle’s most famous lyrics.

Of course, this could mean a number of things. For one, Taylor could just be a really, really big X-Men fan. Or maybe they’re all a really big Taylor fan and wanted to get a photo together. But fans are going wild, hoping that she has been cast as Dazzler.
I would totally be down for Taylor Swift playing Dazzler in an upcoming X-Men movie. Just putting that out there.

DAZZLER IS A MUTANT WHO IS A POP STAR. TAYLOR SWIFT IS A POP STAR. IT’S SO @#$%ING SIMPLE.

HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Taylor’s rep for comment, and while we wait for a response, we’ll just keep daydreaming and hoping this theory turns out to be true. At the very least, we’d love to find out that Taylor is recording some killer tracks for the movie’s soundtrack. Wouldn’t that be cool?!
