Actress Olivia Munn will go psychic as the mutant Psylocke in the upcoming X-Men flick.
The former Attack of The Show co-host will be joining the swelling cast that already includes James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Lana Condor, Oscar Isaac, and others.
Psylocke, aka Betsey Braddock, is a mutant with telepathic and telekinetic abilities who can focus her energy into a “psychic knife” that she can use in combat. She’s the sister of British superhero Captain Britain and was also involved in a body-melding experiment with a Japanese assassin (long story), which I’m sure is more than a big coincidence, considering Munn’s biracial heritage.
Munn may or may not have just revealed her costume on Instagram, captioned with “If the spandex fits…” Time will tell when X-Men: Apocalypse releases on May 27, 2016.
