The evil mutant assassin Psylocke has been added to the upcoming X-Men 3 film, directed by Brett Ratner. The villainous part will be played by Filipina actress Mei Melancon, who previously worked with Ratner on Rush Hour 2. She played the role of "girl in car". She must have made quite an impression.

According to Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox and Marvel Entertainment have spiced things up by adding her to cause further mayhem on the third installment of the comic book series. She is best known for her fighting, telepathic skills, and a bizarrre ability to transport herself and others through shadows. She will fight against the X-Men as a member of Brotherhood of Mutants, lead by Magneto (Ian McKellen).

Although former director Bryan Singer left the project and there has been some controversy sparked about Halle Berry's special treatment, the premise sounds promising. It deals with a possible cure for the X-men's mutations and if they should, or would, pursue it. Never underestimate the power of moral dilemmas in the comic book world.

The film is set to open on May 26, during Memorial Day weekend. For more info on X-Men 3, visit our preview database.
