Olivia Munn, known for her rolls in the Newsroom and New Girl, has been cast as Betsy Braddock, otherwise known as Psylocke, in X-men Apocalypse. This was another character that was in my “Big Mutants that Haven’t Shown Up Yet”. In that article, I wrote:
“Another telekinetic and telepathic, Psylocke also has the mutant ability of looking good in purple. Beginning in the eighties, Psylocke built herself into an important member of the X-men, even beginning a relationship with Angel. Despite being brainwashed on different occasions by different evil groups, Psylocke has left a mark on the X-men history. Sadly, she has not yet been featured in the movies, probably due to her similarity to Jean Grey in abilities.”
Olivia joins an increasingly growing cast of new Mutants in Apocalypse. I wonder what the team will look like when we see our first trailer, but for now, only time will tell.
