Simon Kinberg released a picture last year with himself next to X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy and Jean Grey Sophie Turner.

Also included was Taylor Swift, which struck the Internet in such a way that rumors began to spread about her having a cameo appearance in the upcoming film. Kinberg came out and denied these rumors, however Turner decided to mix things up even further.
The actress posted a picture of her with Tye Sheridan’s Cyclops in a record store. And in said picture Cyclops happens to be holding a record album by Dazzler, a X-Men character who secretly lives as a disco-themed pop star.

Turner accompanied the post with (“#FBF that time Cyclops and I went shopping at the mall and found our favorite singer’s album (pre 1989, of course)”), helping solidify the theory that Taylor Swift is indeed in the film.
Dazzler (Alison Blaire) is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually associated with the X-Men. She first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #130 (February 1980).
A mutant with the ability to convert sound vibrations into light and energy beams, Dazzler was originally developed as a cross-promotional, multi-media creation between Casablanca Records and Marvel Comics until the tie-ins were dropped in 1980. The character was created by a committee of Marvel staff, principally writer/editor Tom DeFalco and illustrator John Romita, Jr.
Despite the fact that Dazzler was originally commissioned as a disco singer, the character shifted to other musical genres, including rock and adult contemporary. She starred in a self-titled solo series in the early 1980s which lasted forty-two issues, a Marvel Graphic Novel titled Dazzler: The Movie, a four-issue limited series co-starring The Beast titled Beauty and the Beast, and later joined the cast of the X-Men. She was briefly a member of the spin-off group Excalibur but has since re-joined the X-Men.
If she is it’ll most likely be kept secret until May 18, when the film is released to theaters.
