Olivia Munn joins X-Men: Apocalypse as Psylocke


The cast for X-Men: Apocalypse just keeps getting bigger. If you thought the last one was jam packed with mutant cameos this one seems to be setting some sort of superhero record. The latest news is that Olivia Munn will be jumping into the role of Psylocke for the film.

I’m not a fan of Munn outside of when she is in roles that don’t require her to talk much, but this could definitely be one of those. I don’t see a fringe mutant like Psylocke speaking up much, though with this casting they could be looking to beef the character’s role up a bit for future spin-offs. 

Brian Singer revealed the news over Instagram, which makes two breaking stories for the social media site today.
