Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” is coming, and it promises to be the action movie of the summer.
Swift confirmed that Zendaya will star in the “Bad Blood” music video by sharing a fierce poster of the Disney star in character. According to the poster, Zendaya will portray the character “Cut-Throat,” and from the looks of her rather menacing, knife-wielding pose, she’s out for blood. Zendaya previously denied rumors of a cameo in Bad Blood, but Swift certainly outed her with the latest reveal.

Earlier Thursday Swift revealed her own character, “Catastrophe,” with a similarly styled image that definitely takes some direction from Sin City.

The music video for “Bad Blood,” which premieres during the opening sequence of the Billboard Music Awards on May 17 is directed by Joseph Kahn, who is responsible for Swift’s “Blank Space” video. Kahn has also done work for Katy Perry, who is the alleged target of “Bad Blood.”
