“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 revealed.

Addressing the rampant speculation surrounding the film, Levy acknowledged the internet buzz about various character appearances, confirming, “The internet is a delight of rumours about the multitude of character cameos that are in this movie. Some rumours are true, some are way off base,” according to Deadline.

Among the most persistent rumours is the possible cameo of Taylor Swift, fuelled by a recent Instagram post from star Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds shared an image reminiscent of Swift’s album cover for Evermore, reigniting speculation about the singer’s involvement in Deadpool & Wolverine.

The film, set to hit theatres on July 26, marks a significant return for Reynolds as Deadpool, a role he feared might not continue post-the Disney-Fox merger.

Reflecting on this uncertainty, Reynolds admitted, “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].”

Joining Reynolds in the cast is Hugh Jackman, reprising his iconic role as Wolverine from the X-Men franchise. Additional cast members include Emma Corrin as Cassandra Nova and Matthew Macfadyen as Paradox, adding to the star-studded line-up of Deadpool & Wolverine.
