Several US election candidates had the same idea when they attempted to win cool points by capitalizing off the release of Taylor Swift's new album 'Midnights'


  • Ryan Reynolds denied the rumors that Taylor Swift will make a cameo in "Deadpool 3"
  • Reynolds, however, said he would "of course" be down to have Swift appear in the upcoming movie
  • Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine in "Deadpool 3"

A Taylor Swift and Marvel crossover won't be happening anytime soon.

On Monday, Ryan Reynolds debunked the fan theory that the 32-year-old Grammy winner would be making a cameo in "Deadpool 3," Entertainment Tonight reported.

"If we shoot the next 'Deadpool' film in our house, then that would be that location," he joked to the outlet.

But while the 46-year-old actor, who plays the Merc with a Mouth in the franchise, shut down the rumors, he said that he would "of course" love to have Swift appear in the upcoming third movie, sharing that he is a huge fan of the singer.

"Are you kidding me? I would do anything for that woman. She's a genius," Reynolds said during the interview on the red carpet for his latest film, "Spirited," in New York City Monday night.

Reynolds revealed that he, his pregnant wife Blake Lively and their daughters, James, 7, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3, are all "obsessed" with Swift's latest album, "Midnights."

"Oh my God, yes. All of us, whole house, I'm not kidding. I love it so much," he gushed. "I do, Blake does, my daughters. We love it. Obsessed."

The rumors of a potential cameo were sparked by a teaser for "Deadpool 3" released by Reynolds back in September. The video announced that Hugh Jackman, who played Wolverine in the original "X-Men" franchise, would be reprising his role in the upcoming threequel, Screenrant reported.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that the video was filmed at the same location as "All Too Well: The Short Film," which was directed by Swift and starred "Stranger Things" actress Sadie Sink and "Teen Wolf" actor Dylan O'Brien. The connection led some fans to speculate that it was an Easter egg.

Although Reynolds denied the speculations, fans shouldn't lose hope because a cameo might still be possible.

"Deadpool 2" featured brief appearances from stars such as Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Alan Tudyk and nearly all of the "X-Men" cast, Screenrant noted.

Swift's potential appearance in "Deadpool 3" could continue the franchise's "tradition" of including celebrities as funny gags, given her close relationship with Reynolds and his family.

"Deadpool 3" is still in development, and details about the flick have been kept under wraps. Aside from Jackman, who seemingly bid farewell to his heroic character in 2017's "Logan," no other cast member has been confirmed to join the now-Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise, according to the outlet.

This comes three years after Disney finalized its $71.3-billion purchase of much of Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox in March 2019 and later dropped the Fox name from its 20th Century Fox film brand. The "Deadpool" franchise became part of the MCU following the deal.

"Deadpool 3" is directed by Free Guy and "The Adam Project" helmer Shawn Levy and is expected to be released on Sept. 6, 2024.
