Psylocke [Source]
Olivia Munn posted a wicked video to her Instagram account showing her sword skills with a kendo stick. The 34-year-old actress is preparing for her role as the mutant Psylocke in X-Men: Apocalypse (2017). In the background her boyfriend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, showed off his skills using a baseball bat.

Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock (or Psylocke) is an Asian mutant with psychic abilities. She's also a master martial artist who wields a katana. It looks like Munn is working hard to train for the role. "Learned some new tricks…" Munn writes. When her casting was first announced fans began complaining that she didn't have the physical skills to play the character and she just shut them down.


Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Lana Condor (Jubilee), Ben Hardy (Archangel), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), with Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse). X-Men: Apocalypse is scheduled to hit theaters May 27, 2016
