‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Star Olivia Munn Shares New Psylocke Photo
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.
Here’s the new look at Psylocke from Munn’s Twitter Q&A:
Munn also confirms that we’ll see Psylocke use her “psychic weapons,” and in another video answer the actress described a fight scene where she uses both psionic blades, comparing her style to that of Wolverine’s. Hugh Jackman has denied rumors that he’ll appear in the coming sequel, so don’t read too much into that answer.
Most of the Q&A was spent answering silly questions like “pancakes or waffles?” or “what perfume do you wear?” but Munn did get to speak a bit about the training she did for X-Men: Apocalypse and seemed to indicate that she has one major fight scene in particular.
Munn’s Psylocke will be one of Apocalypse’s four horsemen, joining Fassbender’s Magneto, Alexandra Shipp’s Storm and Ben Hardy’s Angel. Here’s the official synopsis:
Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible.
Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
The sequel also features returning stars James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence and Rose Byrne, along with newbies Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Lana Condor (Jubilee) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler). X-Men: Apocalypse hits theaters on May 27.
