Olivia Munn Cast as Psylocke In X-Men: Apocalypse

Let me just start of by saying that I am a big fan of Olivia Munn. Sure she’s still a little bit of an unknown to those outside the nerd circle, but this might be her really big break into super stardom. I loved watching her on Attack of The Show with Kevin Pereira and honestly after those two left the show went completely down hill. Olivia Munn is smokin hot and pretty hilarious in the right setting. I’m actually really excited for her that she has been cast in X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse director Brian Singer made the announcement on his Instagram page today; Excited to welcome @oliviamunn as Betsy Braddock! #Psylocke #XmenApocalypse #XMEN“. I think she will be great for this role because for a couple reasons. First, she already kind of looks like her so that’s a huge plus. Second, working on Attack of The Show really got her in touch with her inner Nerd and she knows how important it will be for her to study up on her character. Third, who doesn’t want to see her in that awesome one piece that Psylocke is so known for wearing?

I so wanted to like her in that movie, but it was pretty terrible and made her seem like she was trying to be something she’s not. I hope that she does well as Psylocke and honestly I am just excited to see that she’s even going to be in there. You never know these days how true directors and studios want to stay to the original source material.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit theaters on May 27, 2016. Like always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. What do you think about Olivia Munn being cast as Pyslocke? Leave me your thoughts in a comment below, on the Facebook page, or hit me up on Twitter.
