The Reason Why Taylor Swift Met The X-Men Revealed

Last month, X-Men: Apocalypse screenwriter/producer Simon Kinberg shared a photo of himself hanging out with pop star Taylor Swift. From there, the internet began speculating that Kinberg could have been meeting with the musician about playing the singing superheroine Dazzler, a mutant that can transfer sound vibrations into light and energy beams.

However, there is a much more logical and mundane reason: Kinberg is a fan of Swift's music.


He's in Taylor Swift's Instagram feed. Kinberg, 42, went to see the singer in concert in Montreal on July 7 with his X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy (Charles Xavier) and Sophie Turner (the new Jean Grey) and naturally took a pic with Swift. Does this mean he's joined the famous Swift squad? "I was already part of her squad," he jokes, and then immediately comes clean: "No, I don't even know what her squad is. But I do love that album!" - Entertainment Weekly
