Olivia Munn is the new face of Psylocke for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’

Olivia-Munn hotI’ve given up trying to make sense of the wacky X-Men timeline regarding character ages and so forth. That said, I’m intrigued about Olivia Munn joining X-Men: Apocalypse even if she’ll be much older than Storm, Cyclops, Jubilee, Angel and Jean Grey. Maybe Psylocke will be cast as Professor X’s assistant? Either way, hard to knock this casting.

Director Bryan Singer revealed the news on his Instagram

Excited to welcome @oliviamunn as Betsy Braddock! #Psylocke #XmenApocalypse #XMEN

The pic with Munn in the blue top almost gives a nice glimpse of how she’d look if her costume was even remotely comic accurate.

What do you think of this casting choice?

  • keith

    at first i was like she is too um non asian.. but i didnt know she is part asian from what i read. now i was just happy to see her pop up ( and out lol). Either way you fit that in the what besty usually wears and sign me up. I seen worse. Now i do want her face less puffy and more slim like at the bottom and just a bit more tan and im good

  • I’m sure she’ll be in toned movie shape for you soon enough 😉

  • Rex Sharp

    PERFECT casting. I still cant stomach the timeline innacuracies as stated above. Older than Jean Grey? Seriously? What a mess!

  • It’s very goofy, but she’ll at least hold her end up as Psylocke so that’s all I can ask for.
