We have a pretty stacked summer ahead of us, kicking off in May with Captain America: Civil War, followed by the (hopefully) equally epic X-Men: Apocalypse. The mutants of First Class and Days of Future Past are no longer the new kids on the block, as younger versions of Jean Grey, Scott Summers and more are getting in on the action in the upcoming sequel. To better familiarize you with the lineup, 20th Century Fox has released several new character posters which boast various mutants old and new along with their respective powers.
We haven’t seen too much of Olivia Munn’s Psylocke in the promo materials for X-Men: Apocalypse — mostly just brief flashes of her in the trailer and a couple of images of Psylocke with Oscar Isaac’s titular mutant baddie and Michael Fassbender’s Magneto. Munn took to Twitter to participate in a Q&A with fans, where she teased a big fight sequence in the upcoming film and revealed a new photo of her character.
As teased in the post-credits sting of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Apocalypse is coming and he’s bringing his four horsemen — okay, not the four horsemen we saw in that teaser scene, but a new set of horsemen: Magneto, Psylocke, Storm and Angel. 20th Century Fox has revealed some new photos of the characters who will play accessory to Oscar Isaac’s titular baddie, while some additional details have emerged about their role in X-Men: Apocalypse.
A new year brings lots of new movies to look forward to, like X-Men: Apocalypse, the third film in the current X-Men trilogy, which features both familiar mutants and new additions — like Olivia Munn as Psylocke, the sword-wielding super-villain who teams up with Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse as one of his nefarious four horsemen. The actress has shared a new photo of herself in character from the set of the new film, standing amid a bit of rubble.
Most of our updates on X-Men: Apocalypse have been coming from Instagram as of late, with director Bryan Singer providing set photos and teasing out various characters and their stories (Storm’s origins, Angel hanging out in a Berlin fight club). The latest updates from the set feature Olivia Munn practicing Psylocke’s sweet sword skills, as well as confirmation that the film is shooting in 3D.
'X-Men: Apocalypse' continues to cast some of your favorite mutants to join the upcoming superhero sequel, with director Bryan Singer revealing that fan favorite Psylocke will be played by Olivia Munn.
It's been an uncommonly frank couple of weeks for comic book filmmakers, especially if you count the hilariously stupid and very public remarks of X-Men: The Last Stand director Brett Ratner about his imagined sexual history with model/actresses Olivia Munn and his use of a homophobic slur that apparently cost him his job as producer of the next Academy Awards...
