Olivia Munn shows off her swordplay skills as Psylocke in a new video from the Montreal set of ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’.
29 June 2015
X-Men: Apocalypse is currently filming in Montreal, under the direction of Bryan Singer. The film closes out the XMen– trilogy that started with 2011’s X-Men: First Class and continued with last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, with the story set in 1983. While several cast members from the aforementioned two movies are returning, there are several new actors coming into the fold, including Olivia Munn asPsylocke. We haven’t seen her in costume on the set yet, but the actress revealed a new video on her Instagram page, where she shows off her new swordplay skills.
We haven’t seen many photos from the set lately, since production has moved indoors in Montreal, but hopefully we’ll get our first official look at Olivia Munn in costume as Psylocke soon. The actress is seen practicing with a fake katana sword, the character’s trademark weapons from the X-Men comics. We still don’t know how she fits into the story yet, or how large of a role she will have.
She joins a cast that also includes James McAvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique and Nicholas Hoult as Beast. Newcomers include Oscar Isaac as the title villain, Lana Condor as Jubilee, Sophie Turner as Young Jean Gray, Tye Sheridan as Young Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Young Storm and Kodi Smit-McPheeas Young Nightcrawler.
