What’s more, a fan responded under Turner’s tweet by pointing out that the album cover Cyclops is holding up is an illustration of Dazzler from 1983, done by Bill Sienkiewicz:

And, of course, there’s this:
I mean, it’s not completely implausible, right? How would you feel if T-Swift made a special cameo as Dazzler in X-Men: Apocalypse? Is this a casting move from your “Wildest Dreams?” Or would this put some “Bad Blood” between you and the X-Men franchise?
Sorry. I couldn’t help myself.
