April 14th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



Well, the cast just keeps getting bigger!

Olivia Munn (Attack of the Show, The Newsroom, and more!) has been cast as the epic mutant psychic ninja assassin Betsy Braddock, aka Psylocke. To which Bryan Singer happily announced:

“Excited to welcome @oliviamunn as Betsy Braddock! #Psylocke #XmenApocalypse #XMEN”

Psylocke has long been a favorite of the X-Men franchise, including being on numerous X-Men squads, from the main ones to X-Force and beyond. She’s also been a horseman of Apocalypse and girlfriend to Angel…just saying.

X-Men: Apocalypse arrives in theaters May 27th, 2016
