X-MEN Fan-Art Imagines How Pop Sensation Taylor Swift Might Look As Dazzler
Taylor Swift was rumored to be in the running for the role of Dazzler in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and some impressive fan-art imagines how the Cats actress would look as the popular mutant hero...
Dazzler made her big-screen debut with a brief cameo appearance in X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and although Taylor Swift didn't play her (The Orville actress Halston Sage ended up nabbing the role), the pop superstar was rumored to be in line to portray the music-loving mutant prior to the movie's release.
We're not sure if there was ever any truth to these reports (the trades have suggested that Swift may have considered taking the part), but artist Defendinisart has now shared his impressive interpretation of the Cats actress belting out a tune as Alison Blaire.
I knew exactly how I was going to approach Dazzler once I got to her. There was a rumored casting of @taylorswift13 briefly making a cameo in Dark Phoenix, so I was curious what that could look like.

Most fans would agree that, on paper at least, Swift seems like an inspired choice to play the Disco Queen, but the chances of her taking on the role in the future seem slim. The X-Men will make their way to the MCU at some point, but it's probably going to be a while before Marvel Studios get around to introducing a relatively minor character like Dazzler.
What do you guys think? Would Swift be your first choice to play Blaire, or would you go with someone else? Be sure to share your picks with us in the comments section.
