Pop star Taylor Swift could have a cameo role in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film as disco sensation and mutant, Dazzler.
Fans of the Shake It Off hitmaker will have to wait until the superhero flick hits cinemas on May 19 to know for sure – but speculation is rife.
Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner, who plays Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, posted a picture on Instagram of her and Cyclops (Tye Sheridan) browsing records in suitable ‘80s clobber.
Sheridan has pulled out a record by Dazzler, a mutant from the X-Men universe who can unleash blasts of light and hit disco tunes.
The album in question is Sounds of Light and Fury and Turner added the caption: “#FlashbackFriday to that time Cyclops and I went shopping at the mall and found our favourite singer’s album (pre 1989, of course).”
1989 is, of course, the title of Swift’s most recent chart-topping album and the cast of Apocalypse attended one of her live shows together while filming last summer.
Also, the film’s producer/writer Simon Kinberg has confessed to being a ‘Taylor Swift super-fan’.
