Fans flocking to “X-Men: Apocalypse” this weekend will be introduced to Psylocke, the assassin with mental powers — and mental weapons — played by Olivia Munn. As one of Apocalypse’s four Horsemen, Munn’s Psylocke is a supercharged and lethal combatant. Psylocke might rank alongside Deadpool as one of the most deadly mutants in the X-Men film franchise — and there may just be a movie with room for both of them.
USA Today asked Munn about the odds of seeing Psylocke in an “X-Force” film alongside Reynolds’ Deadpool. After all, both Psylocke and Deadpool were teammates in the “Uncanny X-Force” comic run.
“That would be a really cool thing to do,” said Munn of potentially joining “X-Force.” “What [Reynolds] did with ‘Deadpool’ was genius and I’m so excited for him. It would definitely be cool to see Deadpool and some of the other X-Men characters gather for an ‘X-Force’ movie. I think that’s what the whole world is coming to — everybody unites together, right? It’s never just one character anymore. We all just become one movie.”
While an “X-Force” film has been in the works for a while now, no official updates on its progress have been given in years. It was previously revealed that Munn actually passed on playing Vanessa in “Deadpool,” and that her audition brought her to the attention of “Apocalypse” producer Simon Kinberg. That led to her becoming Psylocke. Munn did eventually appeared with Reynolds in a video, although it was an Instagram video of the two sword fighting.
Olivia Munn debuts as Psylocke in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” which is in theaters now.
