X-Men: Apocalypse Casts Psylocke!

By: Dave Clark

With pre-production ramping up for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, we're getting news nearly every week. Today we found out via Singer's Instagram account that Betsy Braddock aka Psylocke had been cast for the film. Olivia Munn officially joins the already huge cast of mutants for Singer's third installment into this series of X-Men films.

Excited to welcome @oliviamunn as Betsy Braddock! #Psylocke #XmenApocalypse #XMEN

Personally, I love the casting! Curious to see how Munn looks with purple hair...and I have to imagine they'll do something more practical with her uniform. Maybe more like her Marvel NOW version. Either way, I'm psyched to see Psylocke on the big screen! What do you guys think of the casting?

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to be released on May 27th, 2016 and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Ben Hardy, Lana Condor, Evan Peters, and Oscar Isaac.
