Psylocke

It’s easy to see how excited Olivia Munn is to be playing Psylocke in Brian Singer‘s X-Men: Apocalypse, she’s been sharing pictures and videos pretty much non-stop since her casting announcement. We’ve seen her making flips, jumps, swinging swords, and high licking things. This time around Olivia, Miss Munn if your nasty, has decided to be a bit cheeky with her latest costumed photo, hoping to get fans “behind” her portrayal of the X-Men’s psychic ninja Psylocke.

Director Byran Singer shared this afternoon that he has cast Olivia Munn as Elizabeth Braddock aka Psylocke for his upcoming film, X-Men: Apocalypse.  Psylocke is a powerful precognitive ninja with heightened empathy, telekinisis, telepathy and mother-fraking psychic katanas!  She’s bold, she’s beautiful, and she is dangerous!  There’s also been more incarnations of her than almost any other X-Men on the roster!  Inquiring minds want to know, what version will we see in this latest film?   (more…)

Even though X-Men Origins: Wolverine royally bombed with everyone except maybe Hugh Jackman‘s mom, Ryan Reynolds will reprise the role of the Merc with the Mouth for the upcoming Deadpool solo feature. That part of casting the upcoming X-Men spin-off film was more or less a forgone conclusion, but who might play Deadpool’s leading lady in the film, that is a more complicated question.

I’m a little behind on what’s been happening in the X-books lately, and by a little I mean completely, but I do love Storm sporting the mohawk again.

Otherwise, this lineup features a lot of my favorites, and while Jubilee will star I’m excited to see all these ladies working together.

What do you think of this new X-Men team?
