UPDATE: Check out the latest image of OLIVIA MUNN as ‘Psylocke’!
Regarding the character, Munn stated: “I’ve loved Psylocke for so long. She’s a really, really strong badass female character in this comic book world where a lot of times the women don’t get to be strong and badass. You see a lot of superheroes [who] don’t always want to kill, and they’ll avoid it if they can. She’s never had a problem killing, and I like that she was the bad guy that had no problem being the bad guy. She’s telekinetic and telepathic so she can read your mind. She can create anything with her mind. To win any fights, she can just create a mountain and have it fall down on you, but she chooses to create a sword so she can kill up close and personal. I always thought that was really cool and badass.”

To say hello to 2016, I’m gonna say GOODBYE TO 2015 with my Top 5 Favorite Memories of 2015 (that I can think of)… #4 Getting to play #Psylocke in #xmenapocalypse. She’s a telekinetic telepath who chooses to kill with a sword because she wants to do it up close and intimate and killing from afar just seems too easy and no fun. 💜

Yup, she definitely have the physicality to pull off this role. UPDATE: Official images have been release via ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY featuring our first look at OLIVIA MUNN as ‘Psylocke’, ALEXANDRA SHIPP as ‘Storm’, and OSCAR ISAAC as ‘Apocalypse’!
Everyone looks FANTASTIC and exactly like their comic-book counterpart. Unfortunately for the big bad ‘Apocalypse’, not so much. Hopefully with the magic of CGI in the finished product, that will change. It is also confirmed that ‘Psylocke’, ‘Storm’, ‘Angel’, and ‘Magneto’ will make up the ‘Four Horsemen’ and serve under ‘Apocalypse’.
