Having never been given a fair shot at the mutant game in previous X-Men films things are about to change for a fan favorite character, Psylocke. X-Men: Apocalypse director Brian Singer announced today via his Instagram account that Olivia Munn (The Newsroom and Deliver Us From Evil) has joined the cast and will assume the role of Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock, aka Psylocke, in the next film.
There was no word as to which version of Psylocke she will be. Telepath? Telekinetic? Ninja? Why not all three? X-Men: Apocalypse will bow on May 27th, 2016.
