With the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse released, we are all anticipating any additional news and announcements about the film. Now, it looks as though Psylocke star Olivia Munn has decided to release on onset photo via her Instagram page to welcome the new year. The image caption provides the actress’ opinion towards her character:
“To say hello to 2016, I’m gonna say GOODBYE TO 2015 with my Top 5 Favorite Memories of 2015 (that I can think of)… #4 Getting to play #Psylocke in #xmenapocalypse. She’s a telekinetic telepath who chooses to kill with a sword because she wants to do it up close and intimate and killing from afar just seems too easy and no fun”.
Set for release in 2016, the movie will revolve around our favourite heroes teaming up to fight against the world’s first mutant – Apocalypse, who wants to recruit all mutants to create a new world order. Returning cast members include James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver).
New cast members will also be present, such as: Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, and Tye Sheridan who will play a young Storm, Jean and Cyclops. Others include Ben Hardy (Angel) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler). See Munn’s Instagram image below and catch X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27.
