'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' to Cast Taylor Swift as Dazzler, Jean Grey Hints

With the coming of X-Men: Dark Phoenix, it appears like it will become the platform for the debut of a popular Marvel Comics character, Dazzler. Reports claimed that the mutant pop star, who not only can sing and dance but manipulate light, will appear in the upcoming Jean Grey story. Apparently, Sophie Turner hinted that Taylor Swift could play the superhero role.

Jean Grey Actress Hints X-Men: Dark Phoenix to Cast Taylor Swift as Dazzler

The franchise has found a new character for the 2018-scheduled X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and it could somehow cast Taylor Swift. MCU enthusiasts saw the teenage pop star mutant as an unconventional comic character and a contemporaneous emblem of the mirror-ball-fixated, disco-listening era.

They heavily heralded her arrival in the pages of The Uncanny X-Men in 1980, resulting in her appearance in the early issues of The Dark Phoenix saga. Interestingly, the creators originally designed the conception of Dazzler to serve as a cross-promotion effort with the band KISS.

Recently, speculations that Swift can take the role in the new film emerged on the internet. She is rumored to play the pop star mutant after Turner seemingly dropped a pretty serious hint on Instagram. The Jean Grey actress previously shared a photo of her character and Cyclops shopping for Dazzler’s album, tagging Swift in the image. You can see the post below.

Turner captioned the snap: “Flashback Friday to that time Cyclops and I went shopping at the mall and found our favorite singer’s album (pre 1989, of course).” Now that the studio has confirmed the character’s appearance in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Swift could be making her debut to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Swifties React to Rumors that Taylor Swift Could Star as Marvel’s Dazzler

Since the speculations that the renowned singer could play the mutant role are rife, several of her followers have expressed their excitement on social media. One of her fans gushed, “If Taylor Swift ends up playing Dazzler, I’m gonna go to the moon without a spacesuit.”

Another Swifties member wrote, “If Dark Phoenix actually casts Taylor Swift as Dazzler and has a synth-heavy retro 80s theme song sung by her, I will do a glee wee.” If ever the singer snatches the role, it will not be her first acting gig. In 2010, she starred in a romantic comedy, Valentine’s Day, and appeared alongside Jeff Bridges in the film The Giver.
