Forget Marvel superheroes, sign us up for Swift superheroes.
Taylor Swift has revealed a series of posters for her “Bad Blood” video on Twitter. The posters introduce the alter egos of Swift and some other people you may recognize. Model Lily Aldridge is “Frostbyte,” Disney star Zendaya is “Cut-Throat” and Swift is “Catastrophe.” (Swift apparently can never resist a cat reference.)
Aldridge and Zendaya likely aren’t the only stars involved: a People report from April placed Cara Delevingne and Hayley Williams as also on set. It will be just like Swift’s Instagram, only with a Sin City filter.
The video, which premieres May 17 during the Billboard Music Awards, is directed by Joseph Kahn, who also helmed Swift’s “Blank Space” video. Kahn has also done work for Katy Perry, who is the alleged target of “Bad Blood.”
Update: Even more stars now have Bad Blood posters. Williams is ‘The Crimson Curse,” Gigi Hadid is “Slay-Z,” Ellie Goulding is “Destructa X,” Hailee Steinfeld is “The Trinity,” Lena Dunham is “Lucky Fiori,” Kendrick Lamar is “Welvin Da Great,” Karlie Kloss is “Knockout,” and Serayah is “Dilemma.” Swift has also added actual Sin City star Jessica Alba, who plays “Domino,” and Martha Hunt, who plays “HomeSlice.” Swift is assembling an army.
The latest cast member? Ellen Pompeo. Pompeo plays Meredith Grey on Grey’s Anatomy, the character for whom one of Swift’s cats was named.
And now the actress who plays Olivia Benson, Swift’s other cat’s namesake, on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is in the video. Welcome Mariska Hargitay as “Justice.”
Cara Delevingne joins as “Mother Chucker.”
Cindy Crawford is “Headmistress.”
Swift unveiled Selena Gomez as “Arsyn” with fanfare.
