It’s the crossover nobody saw coming. Taylor Swift could be entering the Marvel Universe.

While rumours have been swirling around the singer’s involvement in the upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine movie for quite some time, the Grammy Award winner has kept tight-lipped about the project so far. Ryan Reynolds, on the other hand, just dropped a major hint.

Reynolds, who stars alongside Hugh Jackman in the blockbuster, shared the clue on his social media. Taking to his Instagram Stories, Reynolds shared a picture of his character, Deadpool, recreating Swift’s Evermore album artwork.

In the photo, the actor and close friend of the singer can be seen recreating her exact pose - and he even added the song ‘evermore’ to the post for good measure.

It’s not the first time the filmmakers have dropped a hint, either. Just last month social media users went wild after the Deadpool & Wolverine trailer seemingly confirmed Lady Deadpool will feature in the movie, with many speculating the role will be played by Taylor Swift or actor Blake Lively (who is also married to Reynolds).

Reacting to the latest teaser, Swifties were quick to share their hopes of seeing the singer, who has previously starred in films including Cats and Valentine’s Day return to the big screen.

“Taypool is becoming a reality omg,” wrote one hopeful fan. “If Taylor DOESN'T make a cameo in the new movie I’m gonna feel VERY ripped off,” a second added.

Another social media user commented: “Taylor better be on that damn deadpool soundtrack with an original song,” and others speculated Swift will play another character, Dazzler.

That said, Reynolds’ post could be a bit of fun. Like his character he’s known for being a bit of a trickster, and Swift has enjoyed a close friendship with Lively and Reynolds for years, famously naming the characters in her song ‘Betty’ after the couple’s children. She even borrowed the Deadpool costume from Reynolds to dress up for Halloween once.

As for whether or not Swift will don the red suit again, fans will have to wait until the film hits cinemas on 26 July to find out.
