This is nothing but another great example of the internet, folks.
Country/Pop superstar Taylor Swift was recently photographed with [X-Men: Apocalypse](tag:1194267) actors James McAvoy and Sophie Turner along with X-Men producer/writer Simon Kinberg. No big deal, right? Well, according to the internet this picture meant that Swift was up for a role in X-Men: Apocalypse.
This all came to light simply because Taylor Swift has expressed interest in acting and has already appeared in film and television, so naturally this meant she was joining the X-Men universe. The role people were putting her up for is Dazzler (aka Alison Blaire), a superheroine with the ability to convert sound into light and energy. Dazzler was originally a disco dancer who morphed more into rock contemporary and eventually landed her own series in the 1980's. She's essentially a young blonde with musical talent. Oh wait, that's Taylor Swift!
Everyone needs to get off the computer at some point and go outside. Take a walk, ride a bike, go for a swim, get some Chipotle... just get off the internet.
Would you want Taylor Swift in an X-Men movie?
