Olivia Munn Is An X-Men Now
Olivia Munn still gets a lot of shit for “faking” her way onto G4, and while recent events suggest that mentality should eat every single dick in a bag, she’s also a terrible actress, and I can say that because I somehow watched the first two seasons of The Newsroom without sticking my head in an oven. So if you want to use that as a basis to hate on her being cast as Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse, go nuts provided nuts doesn’t mean rape threats. And, yes, I do have to spell that out because the goddamn Internet. Variety reports:
Director Bryan Singer posted the news on Instagram on Monday.
Psylocke made her first appearance in the comicbooks in 1976, but hasn’t had a large presence in the films. The mutant’s only movie appearance was in 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand,” where she served as one of the minor villains following Magneto and was played by Mei Melançon. Psylocke’s powers have been altered a few times, but they include telepathy and telekinesis.
Munn joins previously announced newcomer Lana Condor, who’s playing Jubilee, as well as returning stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Byrne. Oscar Isaac and Kodi Smit-McPhee are also set to join the franchise.
As for how Olivia Munn got the part, I’m guessing she has a 17-year-old brother? I’m still waiting for Justin Timberlake to get back to me because he fucked her. Remember that? I remembered that. (Congrats on the kid!)
