“We didn’t want any of the cameos or characters to be the story of the movie. But they are peppered in throughout. There’s a lot of characters,” Levy told Entertainment Weekly.

On the rumors about who will cameo, Levy said, “The internet is a delight of rumors about the multitude of character cameos that are in this movie. Some rumors are true, some are way off base.”

One of the persistent rumors is that Taylor Swift will have a cameo in Deadpool & Wolverine with star Ryan Reynolds, and a close friend to the singer, reigniting the buzz recently. Reynolds shared a Deadpool photo on Instagram where he was seen channeling Swift’s album cover for Evermore.

Deadpool & Wolverine opens in theaters on July 26, but Reynolds once thought he would not be able to reprise the superhero role. Amid the Disney and Fox merger, he told EW, “I didn’t know if I’d ever be playing Deadpool again. It’s not something I would’ve said necessarily publicly, but I didn’t know how a character like that would fit into that world [of the MCU].”

Reynolds is joined by Hugh Jackman, who is reprising his role of Wolverine from the X-Men franchise. Other actors in Deadpool & Wolverine include Emma Corrin as Cassandra Nova and Matthew Macfadyen as Paradox.
