Sophie Turner, who plays young Jean Grey in "X-Men: Apocalypse," posted a photo on Twitter Friday that revealed -- at the very least -- a Dazzler Easter egg in the Fox sequel. But did her tweet also contain a clue as to who might actually play the character? Taylor Swift, perhaps?
The image, depicts Jean at a music store with Scott Summers (Tye Sheridan), who's holding a Dazzler album. Turner's accompanying message reads, "#FBF that time Cyclops and I went shopping at the mall and found our favorite singer's album (pre 1989, of course)." "1989" just happens to be the name of Swift's 2014 album.
While "X-Men: Apocalypse" is set in the 1980s, Turner's comment certainly feels like an intentional nod to the singer.

Furthering that theory, Collider pointed out that Swift visited the set of "Apocalypse" in July. The website speculated at the time the singer might appear as Dazzler.

In Marvel comics, Dazzler is a singer and a mutant who uses her powers to turn sound waves into powerful beams of light. Based on these two photos, the likelihood of Swift donning a sparkly outfit for a cameo in the film seems pretty high.
"X-Men: Apocalypse" hits theaters May 27.
