Ryan Reynolds Finally Addressed Those Taylor Swift Deadpool 3 Rumors
And the answer is…
Over the years, Taylor Swift has shown off her acting chops in movies like Valentine’s Day, Cats, and Amsterdam. She hasn’t announced her next role yet, and turns out it’s unlikely to be an appearance in Deadpool 3. Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds addressed the notion in a Nov. 7 interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Turns out, he would love for Swift to be in the upcoming film. “Are you kidding me? I would do anything for that woman. She's a genius,” Reynolds told ET. Honestly? Same, Ryan.
While the thought of Swift joining the Marvel franchise is exciting, Reynolds didn’t detail any plans for Swift to actually join appear in the film. It’s too bad because Reynolds seems to be the ultimate Swiftie. “I'm not kidding. I love it so much,” he said about the singer’s music. “I do, Blake [Lively, his wife] does, my daughters. We love it. Obsessed.”
So, what lead fans to think Swift could appear in the next Deadpool film? Well, Reynolds and Lively are longtime pals with Swift. So much so that rumor has it Swift may have had a part in Reynolds filming a Deadpool-related project at what appeared to be the same house where she shot her All Too Well short film.
The rumor began on Sept. 17 when Lively posted an Instagram photo with Reynolds at what appeared to be the iconic All Too Well house. In the photo, Reynolds wore his Deadpool costume, which raised speculation about whether he was filming a special project.
Then, on Sept. 27, Reynolds dropped a Deadpool 3 promo video with Hugh Jackman that appeared to show him in the All Too Well house once again. Based on his costume, it’s possible Lively posted her photo with Reynolds while on the set of the promotional video.
Suspicions about Swift appearing in a Deadpool film only grew on Oct. 3 when Swift announced that her 10th studio album, Midnights, would feature a track called “Anti-Hero.” Since Deadpool is more of an anti-hero than a typically wholesome superhero, some Swifties thought the track title was another hint that she’s joining Reynold’s film franchise.
“Ok so I have a new theory, we have vigalante sh*t and anti hero…. Tay is friends with Ryan Reynolds and deadpool 3 is coming out…. I’m thinking Taylor is either gonna be in it or music featured in it….” one fan tweeted on Oct. 3, after Swift revealed her Midnights tracklist through her Midnights Mayhem With Me TikTok series.
Another fan pointed out that “Anti-Hero” is the third track off Midnights, so the song’s placement on the album could have been a nod toward Deadpool 3, which is the third installment of the franchise. They only grew more suspicious when Swift announced she had a surprise coming at 3 a.m. on Oct. 21.
“Deadpool could also be considered an Anti-Hero, which is also the 3rd track on #Midnights… is the surprise that Taylor Swift joining the MCU?” a fan tweeted on Oct. 20 Turns out Swift’s “surprise” was actually announcing the 3am edition of Midnights.
Here’s what other fans said about the Deadpool theory:
Now, if Swift doesn’t appear in Deadpool 3, how about appearing on the film’s soundtrack?
Ryan, please make it happen.
