A few weeks ago, we heard Fox was actively looking to cast the role of Psylocke in their upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, and now, with production set to kick off shortly, it looks like they've finally found their actress. In an Instagram post, director Bryan Singer has announced that Olivia Munn will join the giant ensemble cast of the upcoming sequel to 2014's X-Men: Days Of Future Past as the telepathic Betsy Braddock a.k.a. Psylocke! This marks Munn's second foray into the comic book movie genre as she also had a small part in 2010's Iron Man 2. A few of her other recent projects include roles in Lionsgate's Mortdecai, HBO's The Newsroom, and NBC's Chuck.

"You won’t feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities. But what we’ll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. … Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were? You’re dealing with gods and things like that. And what if one survived and what if that found its way into our world?" -Bryan Singer
